Contemporary art and culture from Israel are highly regarded across the globe. Artists, musicians, writers, dancers and creators of film and television—from Israel and the Israeli Diaspora—have been recognized as innovators in their respective fields.

Marked by diversity, pluralism, as well as cutting-edge formal and artistic innovations, Israel’s multifaceted culture reflects, critiques and reimagines how we might understand the country’s past, present and future.

This two-day conference, scheduled to coincide with the Festival of the Arts, will present a variety of artistic modes of expression, including experiential sessions, immersive presentations and academic panels and talks.

The conference will open on Sunday, April 26, with a plenary session highlighting the work of three brilliant artists: Raida Adon, a Palestinian video artist and actress; Tamar Borer, a disabled choreographer and dancer; and Zoya Cherkassky-Nnadi, a painter who immigrated to Israel from Ukraine and currently divides her time between Tel Aviv and Nigeria, her husband’s native land. All three artists will present their work and discuss it with Brandeis faculty during this two-hour session (4:30-6:30 p.m.). The artists will also engage with the community before and during the conference, in class visits, master classes and informal studio visits with student-artists.
