The University of the Arts has partnered with Equality Forum 2012 (May 3 – 6), featuring acclaimed Israeli artist David Adika.

Tel Aviv-based artist David Adika’s photographic installation, Equator, explores the imaginary lines which divide people and places: East and West, North and South, past and present. Representing four geographically diverse regions in Israel, Adika’s images create a map of experience, written across the face of the Israeli landscape and its people, where lines that divide also connect and borders become meeting points, marking spaces of correspondence.

Equator is on view in the Open Lens Gallery at the Gershman Y from April 30 – May 10, 2012.

The gallery is open Monday – Sunday, 9am – 5 pm, with special exhibition hours until 7pm during Equality Forum.

David Adika will discuss his work in a free lecture at the University of the Arts, 320 South Broad Street, on May 2 at 11.30am.

This exhibition is co-sponsored by the Israeli Consulate General in Philadelphia.
