Leigh Orpaz solo exhibition “The Present Continuous” at Hertzliya Museum
Leigh Orpaz's new solo exhibition, “the Present Continuous” opens this January at the Hertzliya Museum of Contemporary Art and will run until April 30. The exhibit is part of many included in the "24/7" show, based on a book of the same title by Jonathan Crary, "24/7: Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep." Open sketchbooks in the show also include Asylum alumni Shay Yehezkeli and Natalia Zourabova. Another Asylum artist, Liat Segal, is featured in the "Makers: Real Time" portion of the show.

Artis, Asylum's partner organization for Israeli retreats, has funded the project, and describes it as such, "In preparation for solo museum exhibition, The Present Continuous at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Leigh Orpaz created several new video works, photographs and a hologram which aim to create a journey through familiar but alienated environments and objects. A coordinating book explores Orpaz’s work along with photographs taken from Orpaz’s family archive, to to create an intimate journey from both sides of the millennium, through the points of view of three generations of photographers." Artis has provided support for this project through the inaugural year of the Project Grants Program.
