Within the artistic process works emerge that seem not to fit into the cosmos of an artist‘s practice. In the eyes of the maker, they have not yet been defined as an art work, or were determined as a study. In order to take a view behind the curtain, artists have been invited to propose a work they have never shown before for various reasons. Some of the works were never accepted as finished because they failed, looked overdrawn or simply appeared not good enough. Others, however, seemed too personal or intimate to show. What do unaccomplished and withheld works tell about the personality of the artist, the mechanisms of self versus external judgements, and the definition of artworks in general?
We invite you all to the finissage of the exhibition Highway Furniture by Bettina Allamoda and Alona Harpaz. Saturday, June 18th at 19:00 Photo by Boaz Arad
It starts with a paradox: Aren’t highways the opposite of furniture? Movement, fluidity, itinerancy. Highway Furniture is the name of the joint exhibition by Alona Harpaz and Bettina Allamoda. But even being on the move requires a setting, needs objects and images.

The exhibition “Freitag, der 13. | יום שישי ה-13” presents a number of international artists in the context of a cultural dialogue. The works of the exhibiting artists illuminate contradictory perspectives on an object or matter, as is exemplified in the title and the opening date of the show, where the number 13 can be interpreted either as an unlucky number or as a lucky number, depending on the cultural background and historical context. The exhibition deals with certain cultural, political as well as artistic, formal phenomena, which revolve around contradictions, paradoxes and contrasting pairs.
