Asylum Trip to Israel

Asylum Director, Rebecca Guber, visitsĀ our artists’ studios, exhibitions, and performances in a jam-packed trip around Israel.

What a whirlwind trip to Israel, it is still swirling around in my head. I had a great studio visit with Liat Livni, visited exhibitions of Yael Meiry, Alexandra Zuckerman, and Maayan Elyakim. I met with a big group of artists in Tel Aviv, and then a training for a group of 30 Jerusalem artists at ArtCube Artists Studios. I was lucky to get to see a number of the performances that were part of the Mekudeshet: Jerusalem Season of Culture, including Night Stroll, and the magical all-night event of performances and discoveries in the Tower of David (I only made it until 4am….).

Big extra thanks to the Schusterman Fellowship for bringing me over and helping me better understand the complexities of Israel!
