You still have a chance to see the incredible video art work by Dana Ruttenberg and Oren Shkedy, at their solo exhibition at Chelouche Art Gallery.
The exhibition will close on May 13th.
With a lack of a framework for the creation and presentation of Dance films in Israel, our films Glove Story and Private I's tour the world extensively but are hardly shown back home. This month will see such a rare occurence, at the Haifa Cinematheque! January 23rd @ 19:00. See more details in our calendar
When they first told me it's impossible to create dance works in 24 hours, I only heard the first part of the sentence: :"it's impossible". That got me going, and the rest is now blur. I don't know what kind of heroic self-destructing mechanism was instilled in me that makes me dive head-first into brick walls, but at least this time around, I am grateful for it.
Now in its 4th year (who would have guessed?), Project 48 is still as crazy an endeavor as it was the first time. We are lucky this year to be hosted by Batsheva Dance Company and to partner up with Diver Festival.
Ready, Set, DANCE.
As we continue our cross-country tour of Naba 2.0, our next stop is the Herzeliya Museum, where the work will meet and interact with an incredible exhibition of the notorious Uri LIfshitz (here in a self portrait).
We will hold two shows during this exhibit:
June 25th @ 11:00
August 20th @ 11:00

NABA 2.0 was born in the Israeli Contemporary Art galleries of Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2013 and has performed there since. This summer at the invitation of the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, we first experimented with taking it into another museum and it was a BLAST. It felt like discovering a new branch of the family we never knew existed. As we embodied the figures peeping at us from the canvases, they were instantly added to our family tree.
So now we are embarking on an Israeli tour of the work to selected museums across the country with a generous grant from the Israeli Lottery foundation.
Each museum is its own world. We explore it, its architecture, the works of Art currently housed within it. We do what you would do when you move to a new place: "The sofa would work here, if I just put the piano over there".
Except the piano is a duet and the sofa is a trio.
Follow our calendar to see where we are at next.
If you're in Miami, make sure to check out Chelouche Gallery's booth at UNTITLED, host to the most interesting galleries from around the world during Miami Art Week.
This year, alongside some incredible works by Tom Pnini, Nir Evron and Tomer Sapir, you'll see three of Dana Ruttenberg and Oren Shkedy's Dance work for the screen.
