WUJS Art Exhibition
The Young Judea program’s final art exhibition showcases the fresh talent of five young artists from around the globe. Each distinctive piece is a product of five months spent living and working in Tel Aviv. Take Sarah Markowitz, whose 12-minute comedy set will include her sharpest observations. Inspired by her new life in Israel, specifically the culture, people and sites, she writes jokes based on what she sees. Markowitz performs regularly and hosts her own weekly show as part of Tel Aviv’s English-speaking comedy scene. Catch the first short film by Kayla Kroot from Illinois. The film follows a few days in the life of Cami, a bicycle, and her relationship with her owner. The film explores the things we miss when our communication relies solely on words. And from London, there’s Michael Rosner’s drag show; his alter ego Ola Hadasha has adapted to Tel Avivian life, and promises to deliver a performance that will leave you questioning everything you know. Take a look at Stephanie Greenberg’s photography. The young artist from New Jersey knows that her work represents what she feels in her current moment, and as such details her personal journey in Israel. An artist from California, Leanna Zamosc will be displaying several ink sketches, paintings and digital paintings. Among the personal works is a pencil portrait of her grandfather and his family based on the last photograph taken before he left Poland for Argentina – the rest of his family later perished in the Holocaust. A moving variety of young talent.
