**Exhibition Description:**
“Nomadic Souls: A Semiotics of the Start” is a group exhibition exploring the journey of new immigrants to Israel through visual art and semiotic research. Curated by Vera Gailis and Anna Smoliarov, the exhibition delves into the first-year experiences of newcomers, highlighting feelings of loneliness, culture shock, and the search for belonging.
Featuring works by 35 artists, the exhibition creates a mosaic of immigrant experiences, revealing the complexity of integrating into Israeli society. Alongside the art, personal items like ulpan notebooks and letters offer a unique view into the immigrant’s journey of learning and adapting.
This exhibition underscores the critical role of visual symbols in the immigrant experience, providing insight into the personal and sensitive process of starting anew in Israel.
