Exhibition Overview

Tsibi Geva has had numerous one-person shows in various institutions, including the Israel Museum, Jerusalem; the Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Haifa Museum of Art; the ICA, Boston; and Espacio Aglutinador, Havana, Cuba. Critic Nuit Banai writes: “Since the early 1980s, Tsibi Geva has been interrogating the paradox-riven myths and national symbols that construct Israeli identity in an aesthetic language whose fidelity to abstraction is persistently problematized.” Curated by Barry Schwabsky and sponsored by the Schir Foundation.
