CONVERGE Lecture Series presents Sigalit Landau's "The Work of a Bridge Maker"

Toronto, ON – CONVERGE Lecture Series will present a public lecture by internationally acclaimed Israeli artist Sigalit Landau.

Hear Landau speak about her works, currently part of an international tour. Landau’s works investigate the political and environmental issues of her native country and express the contemporary Israeli condition. The themes of endless movement in search of a place of belonging and the wounds of a traumatic history are recurrent themes in Landau’s performative videos.

A selection of Landau’s performative video works will be exhibited for the first time in Canada from February 6 to April 6, 2014 at the Koffler Gallery (Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street) with a public opening reception on February 6 from 6 – 9 PM.
