DESCRIPTION

Renowned contemporary artist Sharon Lockhart explores the work of the innovative dance composer Noa Eshkol (Israel, 1924–2007). Eshkol created an intricate movement notation system and formed the Chamber Dance Group in 1954. She also designed and created colorful wall carpets, which the dancers worked on collectively. After Eshkol's death, a group remains active in preserving her legacy; Lockhart spent time with this group.

Sharon Lockhart | Noa Eshkol is conceived by Lockhart as a two-person exhibition, with Lockhart's work in dialogue with Eshkol's. The exhibition includes a film installation, a series of photographs, a selection of wall carpets and materials from Eshkol's archive.
