Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
In conversation with curator Liora Belford, artist Nevet Yitzhak will share the conceptual development and technical process of creating her compelling three-channel video installation WarCraft (2014), presented at the Koffler Gallery. Providing insight into her broader artistic practice, Yitzhak will discuss the ways in which she approaches cultural research and digital technologies to engage notions of heritage, suppressed histories, collective forgetfulness and identity from her perspective as an Arab Jew, marginalized within the Eurocentric discourse of mainstream Israeli society. The artist and curator will also address questions of power relations and cultural appropriation, inviting community dialogue on these critical themes.
Presented together with Nevet Yitzhak: WarCraft, at the Koffler Gallery from April 4 – May 26, 2019. A Primary Exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, presented in partnership with Images Festival.
