Yehudis Barmatz-Harris has also worked as an assistant to the curator David Gibson in New York City, interviewing and writing curatorial notes for his work in progress. She has conducted interviews of artists in Israel, working as reporter for Individual Collective/Sarah Lehat and contributing articles for Jewish Art Now.

This philosophy is .expressed in her own personal works
