Dor Zlekha-Levy (b. 1990, Tel Aviv) lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Dor Zlekha-Levy is a multimedia artist who specializes in audiovisual installations, video art, and live performances. Sound is a core element in his work. Ongoing collaborations with musicians are essential to his working process, from conception to installation. Dor’s latest works concern the history and cultural heritage of Arab Jewry (Jews living in or originating from Arab countries). His works bring to life the voices excluded from Israeli cultural discourse in a way that allows them to not only be heard, but be listened to.
Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Hamidrasha Gallery, and Braverman Gallery, among others, and he has participated in numerous group exhibitions at The Israel Museum, Petach Tikva Museum of Art, Kunsthalle Stavanger, The Museum of Islamic Art in Jerusalem, and more. His videos have been screened at international festivals including Ars Electronica and institutions among them Kadist Foundation and ICA London. The artist is also behind several major events combining live musical performances and audiovisual installations under the title “Songs of The Next War” (Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art, Jerusalem Film Festival).
Currently a resident artist at Artport Tel Aviv (2019-2020), Dor is a recipient of the Israeli Ministry of Culture Prize for a Young Artist 2017, and was awarded the ‘Zoom 2016’ Prize for a Young Israeli Artist. His works are held in the collection of The Israel Museum in Jerusalem and in private collections.
