Discovering America
Rubin and Bokobza meet in New York

31.3.22 - 16.7.22

Curator: Edna Erde


At the center of the new exhibition at the Rubin Museum: Discovering America is a video animation Following Rubin in which Eliahu Eric Bokobza takes Rubin back to the New York of the 1920s'.

The visual dictionary of the nascent Zionist endeavor, of which Rubin was one of the creators, his biography, as well as his sources of inspiration embedded in the trends of the day, both in Palestine and in America, all form the backdrop to Bokobza's video animation.

In the style of the silent movie, this animation work is seemingly childish, naïve, yet at the same time it is ironical.

Other highlights of the show are a "Map-Room": a series of works on old maps of Palestine on which Bokobza  projects his own 'story' as well as Bokobza's self portraits  created specifically for the exhibition, which reflect his dialogue with Rubin.

Following Bokobza's attention to Rubin's 'American connection' in the 1920s', the exhibition  also displays four of Rubin's American paintings from the 1920s and the 1930s, works that largely remained less familiar than his more celebrated Eretz-Israeli oeuvre.
