by Roseanne Tabachnik | 07.12.16

The new Gordon Gallery has re-joined the ranks of the art world. The grand opening of the new space which took place in November marked the 50th anniversary of the gallery’s mission to represent Israeli and international contemporary art.

The new building, which is located on HaPelech Street in South Tel Aviv, was designed by the internationally-acclaimed architecture firm Gottesman-Szmelcman based in Tel Aviv.

In honor of the opening, the gallery showcased an exhibition by FAILE, a collaboration between Brooklyn-based artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. FAILE focuses on creating abstract visual imagery using bold pigments and geometric shapes.

Through their art, the Brooklyn-duo touches on key societal issues such as consumerism, religious media, and architecture.

Keeping in line with their mission, this exhibition, which is their first-ever presentation in Israel, entitled Strong Currents, represents forces that may not be visible to the eye but are powerful.

The collection of paintings and works on paper explore contradictions and hidden meanings within society.
