A new exhibition of Israeli and international art exploring the collective’s role in society, the empowering of the individual, and the aggregation of a communal “we.” Paintings, sculpture, photography, and video works touch on subjects such as immigration, religion, and nationality, allowing for historical reflection and critical discussion.
The exhibition takes its name from one of its central works, We the People by Vietnamese artist Danh Vo, a 1:1 reproduction of the Statue of Liberty in 300 pieces ־ four of which are displayed here. The artists featured include Cyprien Gaillard, Melanie Gilligan, Shilpa Gupta, Yoav Horesh, Susan Hefuna, Auguste Rodin, Sala Manca, Slavs and Tatars, Wolfgang Tillmans, Artur Zmijewski, and Natalia Zourabova.
