Gallery Talk: Liel Leibovitz, Inbound Exile: Jerusalem as Viewed from Tel Aviv
Rosenberg & Winnick Galleries
Even though Liel Leibovitz's family has lived in Jerusalem for generations, he could never make peace with the Holy City. Born in Tel Aviv, he thought of Jerusalem more as a syndrome than a place. But when he started looking into his own complicated history with the ancient capital, he unraveled a tale of poetry, lust, and murder. In this gallery talk/walk through YUM’s exhibition City of Gold, Bronze and Light: Jerusalem between Word and Image, Liel Leibovitz (Tablet Magazine) weaves his family's own eventful story of life in and out of Jerusalem with those of pilgrims, madmen, and writers, from Herman Melville to S.Y. Agnon.
