zerubbabel, solo exhibition
Magasin III has opened a satellite space in Jaffa, greater Tel Aviv, on January 20, 2018 with a solo exhibition by Israeli-born American artist Haim Steinbach The exhibition zerubbabel is Steinbach’s first solo show in Israel, and it marks the launch of a diverse program at Magasin III Jaffa that will feature both international and local artists.
In his artistic practice, Steinbach selects and arranges everyday objects from a spectrum of social and cultural contexts. Engaging them in the play of ‘display’, the objects are staged in their own right, emphasizing their identities, inherent meanings and associations. The inaugural exhibition at Magasin III Jaffa, curated by David Neuman, includes work by Steinbach ranging from recent wall paintings, which focus on the essence of text, imagery and color, to objects presented in his architecturally defined boxes.
“Haim Steinbach belongs to the most quintessential group of Contemporary artists—those that so importantly have pushed the boundaries of visual expression. The upcoming exhibition will clearly establish a benchmark for future presentations at Magasin III Jaffa. It is our utmost pleasure to present Haim Steinbach’s art to local and international audiences”, says David Neuman.
