Meet the Artist: Yael Bartana

January 26, 2012, 7 pm

Join Yael Bartana and Sławomir Sierakowski, the protagonist of "And Europe will be Stunned"  for a conversation about Bartana's work moderated by Chen Tamir, an independent curator and arts writer based in New York, Toronto, and Tel-Aviv. She is also the Program & Operations Manager at Artis.

Yael Bartana is an Israeli-born artist and filmmaker now based in Amsterdam, Berlin and Tel Aviv. Her film trilogy "And Europe will be Stunned" made between 2007 and 2011, was shown at the Polish Pavilion of the Venice Biennial in 2011. The films revolve around the activities of a Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland invented by Bartana. As the artists says "This is a very universal story; as in previous works, I have treated Israel as a sort of a social laboratory, always looking at it from the outside". In 2010 she won the Artes Mundi prize for work that stimulates thinking about the human condition. 

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Art Foundation as part of Canadian Art Foundation Speakers Series Sponsored by BMO Financial Group
