Tal Mazliach Exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art

The exhibition presents for the first time paintings from the past five years, as well as a selection of paintings from previous years. Open through Saturday 26 June 2010.

Tal Mazliach’s paintings are constructed like a riddle which the viewer must decipher. Beyond the colorful, tempting, almost blinding cover, there hides a plethora of images, of figures and of symbols, imbued with sentences and words that consolidate into a full, complex pictorial and emotional world. A deep, prolonged observation exposes an intricate layering and reveals yet more details, which eventually become a flickering puzzle, demanding repeated scrutiny from the viewer. A constant tension exists in the paintings between revealing and concealing, between the part and the whole, between the naïve and the self-conscious, between a series of intertwined contexts.

The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is Israel’s leading museum of modern and contemporary art, and home to one of the world’s largest collections of Israeli art. Since its founding in 1932, the Museum has served as one of Tel Aviv’s major cultural hubs, displaying a vibrant mix of permanent collections and temporary exhibitions in a wide variety of fields – painting, sculpture, prints and drawings, photography, video, architecture and design. Each year, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art welcomes more than 500,000 visitors, offering them over twenty annual Israeli and international art exhibitions.
Situated in an impressive architectural complex, the Museum is an integral part of the city’s major cultural center – the Golda Meir Cultural and Art Center – home to the Israeli Opera and the Cameri Theater.
