Israeli Artist’s Smithsonian Exhibit

Israeli artist Nira Pereg, born in Tel Aviv, creates documentary-based video works that explore routine actualities in dramatic form.  Starting tomorrow, DC residents will have the opportunity to enjoy Pereg’s “67 Bows,” a work from 2006, inspired by visits to the Karlsruhe Zoo in Germany, where Pereg studied a flock of flamingos.

In recent years, Pereg has been featured in exhibitions at New York’s MoMA PS1 and the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

WHEN: August 22 – November 13

WHERE: Smithsonian’s Hirshorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, 7th Street and Independence Avenue SW
