Organized by prominent Israeli artist and curator Doron Rabina, this exhibition presents work by 20 artists from Israel, Greece, Germany, Belgium, Britain, and the United States that examines the relationships between originality and origin. Through video, photography, drawing, and sculpture, these works take the challenges of “originality”—invention, innovation, novelty—to extremes, while making the term “origin”—genesis, precedent, historical debt, pre-historic territory—a subject.
