In the art scene initiatives were taken to mobilize the digital realm, as a way to retain access and keep the pulse of culture beating.
I am grateful to the generosity of the Jerusalem municipality for it's 360 initiative making virtual tours of all it's municipal run galleries- bringing my first Duo exhibit, exhibited with Elinora Shwartz and curated by Avital Naor Wexler, funded by Mifal Hapayis Exhibition Grant, into the virtual sphere for visitors who didn't make it before the galleries shut down. With this initiative we were equipped to hold virtual talks:
Beita Gallery and it's managers exhibited flexibility and resourcefulness in a last minute decision to hold a virtual Facebook live talk about the exhibit in the most professional way possible, using a great technician, superb lighting, communications staff, and despite our disappointment after the cancellation of a long waited for conversation with well known Art Therapist and Jungian annalist Janice Shapiro. Despite the social distancing, I felt connected to the audience who eagerly tapped in to listen, react, and ask.
