Roy Efrat, group exhibition, “Playful Grounds”, As a part of the Sixth Drawing Biennale, Jerusalem

Roy Efrat and Maya Aruch is participating in the Sixth Drawing Biennale in Jerusalem, with Come – a new collaboration between the two.

The 6th Biennale for Drawing in Israel, held under the auspices of and produced by the Jerusalem Artists’ House, has established its status as a unique and comprehensive artistic enterprise since 2001. Like previous editions, Traces VI is held at the Jerusalem Artists’ House and several other venues in the city center (Ticho House, The Jerusalem Print Workshop, Agripas 12 Gallery, and Barbur Gallery), which together unfold the state of drawing in Israel and various aspects associated with it. The scores of participating artists and hundreds of featured works, as well as the diverse spectrum of styles, techniques, media, and themes, come together to form a grand artistic celebration, attesting to the status of drawing as a central, current medium.

Like all previous editions of Traces, the current exhibition sets out to map contemporary practice in the field of drawing in Israel; to outline directions and inclinations, while emphasizing the conceptual and thematic transformations that occurred in this dynamic – traditional, yet constantly renewing—medium in recent years; and to sustain a dialogue with the previous biennials. Approximately 700 artists responded to the public appeal to participate in the Biennale, and most of the 83 participating artists were selected from among these.
