Almacen - Hapninim 1, Tel Aviv,
We are pleased to invite you to the opening of Micha Bar-Am’s new exhibition – Palimpsest, . Curator: Dr. Guy Morag Tzepelewitz.
The current exhibition presents two thematic series of extraordinary photographs by Micha Bar-Am, never before exhibited in this form to an Israeli audience. Each series in its own way engages in erasure and change, addressing the obliteration of identity, the presence of meaning, and its replacement with a different one.
Micha Bar-Am (b. 1930, Germany) is one of the last giants of Israeli photography. He initiated and established the Photography Department of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and was the first Israeli accepted into the international Magnum Agency. Bar-Am was the Mideast photographer for the New York Times, and was awarded the Israel Prize in 2000 for his life’s work.
