Organized by Redtory Culture and Art Organization and Consulate General of Israel in Guangzhou, curated by Yaniv Shapira, the exhibition “Made in Israel” was launched on June 1, 2016, at Hall 3, Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art, Guangzhou. It is the third straight year Redtory Culture and Art Organization cooperate with Consulate General of Israel in Guangzhou to hold exhibitions. The first year was Aharon Gluska' s solo exhibition “Imagined Landscapes”; second year was Avital Cnaani' s solo exhibition “Black Birds”; and third year was four contemporary Israeli artists exhibition“Made in Israel”. Related exhibition information is available at Redtory' s official website and Wechat.

 

The "Made in Israel" exhibition is the result of looking at the totality known as China. This cultural and geographical entity spans thousands of years; and is one of the oldest cultures in the world. The rich multi-dimensional traditions are present in all walks of life, particularly those of the spirit and the creative-in literature, poetry and art. Only towards the end of the 19th century and early 20th century, Lao Tze and Confucius' books were translated into German, English and other Western languages. The Israeli culture became particularly interested in The Book of Tao which has been translated into Hebrew six times.

 

Western Exposure to the great heritage of Chinese culture and civilization has created a growing influence in all areas of life, particularly in the era of globalization, knowledge exchange and commercial relationships. In the last few decades, China's identity has become imprinted in the minds around the globe as a commercial trade-mark known as "Made in China". This exhibition begs to offer a different perspective regarding this term, which can be seen in the works of four contemporary Israeli artists. Maya Attoun, Nir Harel, Hilla Toony Navok and Irit Tamari react to the Chinese experience, with a personal and sensual outlook, bearing a spiritual-artistic interpretation. This exhibition examines the power of art and the individual as opposed to mass industrialization and mass marketing.

 

The organizer Redtory Culture and Art Organization also invite curator Yaniv Shapira and four artists of Hilla Toony Navok, Irit Tamari, Maya Attoun and Nir Harel to the gallery talk on May 28, 2016.
