About the Event: Zemack Contemporary Art Gallery
The evening will begin with fine wines, hors d'oeuvres, musical performance, and a short slide show presentation by photographer Yair Barak. This will be followed by mingling with artists and the founders of the gallery. The presentation will cover the historical and contemporary complexities between the photographic medium and the field of art. We will cover the identity crisis of photography's pictorial flair from the 19th century through to its modern impact today. We will also discuss the essence of the relationship between photography collecting, the art market, and fashion trends in contemporary photography. Yair Barak is a photographer and video artist, photography senior lecturer, curator and writer. We will also be meeting estabilished Israeli artists, Eran Shakine, Yuval Yairi, Peleg Dishon, Mira Maylor, and Eitan Vitkon.
