The Artists of Agripas 12 Gallery's: Homage to Moshe Castel

The Moshe Castel homage project is a collaborative project realized with the Agripas 12 Artists' Gallery and the Moshe Castel Museum of Art. The many and varied gallery artists have produced a conversation of aesthetics which has sharpened their own introspection and so reflects the unique language of Moshe Castel. As curator of the Museum, during the development of this project, elements in Moshe Castel's works that these contemporary artists found relevant, were revealed to me. This project has also led to a greater familiarity with the gallery artists. The process has materialized a very unique project joining a heterogeneous group of artists in dialogue with a single artist, one of great importance in the historiography of the world of Israeli art from the 1920's to the 1970's.

It is therefore why the Moshe Castel Museum of Art is honored to join in hosting this lively group of local artists. We hope it contributes to a new and refreshed look at, conversation with, and research of an important and celebrated figure in Israeli art, Jewish art and as an international artist.ě
