“The Times We Live In Are So Poetic”: A Master Class with Nir Hod

Thursday, 10am-11am PDT

Prerequisite Note: Due to the virtual setting of this class, you must have computer capability, including internet access, in order to participate. A camera is also optimal but not required.

Nir Hod’s works take a contrary approach to create beauty from destruction, enabling us to see ourselves and our world in new ways. He has been exploring the unexpected relations between beauty, decay and loneliness since he burst onto the Israeli art scene. In this master class, you will get an up-close personal look at his creativity, and how it can inspire your own.

Moderated by Dr. Rotem Rozental, AJU’s Chief Curator.
