"Skulls and Helmets", an intriguing joint exhibition at the Bar-David Museum features a wonderful artwork from our collection by STartist Tsuki Garbian.
The exhibition, displaying works by artist Yonatan Hirschfeld along with Garbian, attempts to reread classic paintings painted by the great masters such as Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Goya, Velasquez, Titian and others. The two contemporary artists shine a light on different aspects of the original paintings, exposing and challenging the masters' choices. Each artist deals with complex questions concerning the artists' figure from the gospel and through Jesus' crucifixion. They look to the past to echo the present.
The exhibition is on view at the Bar David Museum, in Kibbutz Baram in the Upper Galili, until the end of December 2016.
