Local Reflections

Local Reflections Is a group exhibition focusing on the relationship between the artist and his locality. 20 artists from the Megido Regional Counsel participate in the exhibition that relates both to the physical surroundings and in a more abstract way to the means by which human beings define a place, mark it, build it and experience it during their lives. The artists belong to different generations, some have been born in the area, while others are new comers, but all are searching for their own definition of a place which is constantly under change. Typical images of the farmer, the cowshed, physical and human landscape of the Kibbutz along with local myths are presented with a fresh touch.
