The ANTEA Gallery has been a central part of my life and I am including here the documentation of ANTEA DAROM, a large-scale exhibit that very much summarizes our activities.
ANTEA – a Space for Women’s Art at the Kol Ha-Isha feminist center - was an activist art gallery founded in Jerusalem in 1994 by Rita Mendes-Flohr and Nomi Tannhauser and was active until 2012. Antea sought to create a forum for the critical examination of issues related to women, art and society and to advance the multicultural discourse of women and women artists in Israel.
HER DRESS, HER SYMBOL: ANTEA REVISITED
In 2019 Nomi Tannhauser and I got together again and curated the exhibit Her Dress, Her Symbol: Antea Revisited, with works by 100 artists, at the Agripas 12 and Marie cooperative galleries in Jerusalem.
The exhibit’s digital catalog can be viewed at: www.antea-dress.com
