USF Contemporary Art Museum Exhibition Shows the Results of Conflict

Friday, September 14, 2018

The exhibition Miki Kratsman: People I Met, curated by USF Contemporary Art Museum curator-at-large Christian Viveros-Fauné, is on view now at the Contemporary Art Museum.

The exhibition looks at the results of conflict in Israeli-occupied territories through a vast archive of more than 9,000 portraits of anonymous Palestinians, which Kratsman first uploaded to a dedicated Facebook page in 2011.

Miki Kratsman: People I Met is supported by an Exhibition Grant from the Artis arts organization.

Artis is an independent nonprofit organization that supports contemporary artists from Israel whose work addresses aesthetic, social and political questions that inspire reflection and debate.

Exhibition Grants provide support for solo and group exhibitions outside of Israel that include artists from Israel at key moments in their career. Artis has supported exhibitions at both major international institutions including biennials and museums, as well as smaller venues and alternative spaces since 2004.
