Beyond words | International multidisciplinary art event

September 2-8, 2018

Artspace Tel Aviv

Concept, curatorship & production: Dr. Liliana Orbach 


With the development of the means of communication in its many forms, the transmission of explicit, as well as subliminal messages within the artistic practice has become increasingly sophisticated and complex, becoming a topic of relevance and worthy of consideration.

Beyond Words focuses on the points of contact between the verbal and the visual field of expression. Beyond Words reveals the ways in which creators from different backgrounds and languages measure the degree of effectiveness of the transmitted content, by combining / transforming / omitting words, using sounds / gestures / actions.

The event counts with an international list of more than 100 participants, providing a platform for a wide range of interpretations.

The program includes a symposium, video screenings, performances, workshops and meetings between artists, curators and local audiences.

Beyond Words is sponsored by Artspace Tel Aviv, the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport and the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Other supporters of our guests arriving from abroad are: The Polish Institute-Tel Aviv, The Adam Mickiewicz Institute - Poland, The Italian Institute-Tel Aviv, The Blank Contemporary Art-Bergamo, Italy, Minicultura-Gobierno of Colombia, The Ministry of Culture of Pereira, The Mayor of Pereira and The Museum of Art - Pereira, Colombia.

Meeting with Ayala Netzer

Ayala explains about her talk: “Ever since I was a child, art allowed me to break out of my own inhibitions, and to examine those of society. For me, as a very shy and socially rejected girl, talking was very difficult and therefore art served as my main communication tool. From my early work during my studies, I tend to do works that deal with the subject of shame: What can you expose? How much can I expose? What do I gain from all of this exposure?”

Salon Talks 2016 / # 4. Artspace Tel Aviv

Meeting with Aya Eliav & Ofir feldman

A live performance and a TV show that was created in the spirit of reality shows such as X-Factor and American Idol, to find the next performance art star. Eliav and Feldman reenact in this show several iconic performances of artists such as Marina Abramović and Yoko Ono, while they themselves are subjects of the competitive format they had created.

The project creates a critical interactive space that raises doubts and questions regarding the roll of the artist, the art curator and the public in the era of reality TV.

Meeting with Gili Noyman

Gili Noyman presents her experimental project of urban video works. The videos study people and their daily routine in public spaces. They are expanding the boundaries of conventional observation by showing reality from abstract and poetic perspectives. 

Yoav writes about his project: “Serene Oasis” is a photography project I started in the fall of 2014. The name for this project comes from the literal English translation for “Neve Sha’anan," a small, poor neighborhood located in the Southeast part of Tel Aviv, which is home for tens of thousands of African, Asian, Eastern Europeans and Israelis. This large format, black and white photograph series, not only concern the neighborhood, but also put emphasis on the people of this area.״
