Australian, Kiwi artists on show at Tel Aviv Museum of Art
A new photography exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art opened last weekend featuring the works of artists from Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
Among the artists on show are Brisbane-born Tony Albert, New Zealand's Shane Cotton and Tibetan Gonkar Gyatso.
According to the museum, the exhibition, titled Roundabout: Face to Face, "reflects a global community often separated by national borders and estranged by cultural conflicts and religious ideologies, yet united by the common goal of creative expression and mutual artistic exchange".
The curators say an emphasis is placed on portraits expressing different "voices" regarding religion, ethnicity and gender, thus setting the viewer off on a dialogue, a journey discovering the other within the self.
The exhibition runs until January 1, 2012.
