Renowned Israeli Photographer Adi Nes at the University of Rhode Island March 22

Renowned Israeli Photographer, Adi Nes, will be speaking at the University of Rhode Island on Wednesday, March 22 at 7 pm at a program that is free and open to the public. It will be held at the URI Gender and Sexuality Center, 19 Upper College Rd. in Kingston, RI.

Adi Nes stands out as one of the most important and leading art photographers in Israel. Throughout 20 years of activity, his artwork has developed to be groundbreaking for an entire generation of artists while clearly presenting the multi-layered complexities of Israeli identity. Since completing his studies in the Photography Department of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem, in 1992, Nes has shown his works in many individual – and scores of group – exhibitions locally and throughout the world, in which he’s garnered wide recognition and success. Nes’ images continue to cause waves in the art world as well as in wider circles, as his circle of admirers broadens globally. It can be said that Adi Nes’ creations reveal iconic images which have been carved in the collective consciousness and have become part of the public canon.
