Inbal Abergil Exhibits At Baxter Street In New York
April 1, 2016
Alumna and adjunct faculty member Inbal Abergil’s ’11 solo exhibition N O K - Next Of Kin was recently on display showing at Baxter Street at the Camera Club of New York. The exhibition, which closed March 26, is the third in a set of four exhibitions from the Workspace Residency Program at Baxter Street; Abergil was a resident last year.
N O K - Next Of Kin traces the manners in which American families memorialize family members who were killed while serving in the military; the work on view was the result of extensive travels Inbal took across the United States to meet with relatives of fallen soldiers and military personnel. According to a statement from Baxter Street, Inbal’s work “investigates the aesthetic and societal norms through conceptions of time, memory and place, specifically in culture’s where loss is a substantial part of daily life.” The exhibition also resulted in a publication featuring interviews between families and the artist.
Inbal, who was born in Jerusalem and currently lives in New York, has had solo exhibitions at Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery and E3 Gallery in New York and Tova Osman Art Gallery and Kibbutz Art Gallery in Tel-Aviv. You can view more of her work here.
