Gallery Talk at the Exhibition: Neopostism? Neosent?
With Dr. Nava T. Barazani and the Exhibition curators: Lena Zaidel and Sasha Okun (3.2.2022)

Neopostism - a new word, was invented by Sasha Okun. The word is the assembly of ┤Neo┤, ┤Post┤, and ┤Ism┤. ┤Neo┤ - new; ┤Post┤ - after / following / in the footsteps of; ┤Ism┤ - a suffix as in: Expressionism, Cubism, Fauvism etc. The meaning of the word Neopostism: influenced by all of the various periods and movements renowned in Contemporary Art.

Neosent - a new word, was invented by Lena Zaidel. The word is an assembly connecting the syllables ┤Neo┤ and ┤Sent┤. ┤Neo┤ - new; ┤Sent┤ - an abbreviation of Sentimentalism. Neosent - the new Sentimentalism.

The exhibition Neopostism? Neosent? examines the emerging trend of the past few years in the contemporary art field: tendencies to narrative art, figurative art, rigorously created art, and art with a focus on emotion. The exhibition examines these inclinations and highlights the threads that connect the works of 21 Israeli artists exhibiting here, with works of Sentimentalists of the 18th century.
