PWI Dinner with an Artist
Are you fascinated by art? Do you want to get to know outstanding female artists and be able to discuss with them about their work, inspiration and art in general in an informal setting, over a delicious dinner? Then the PWI Dinner with an Artist is just an event for you!
Stephanie Manasseh, founder and director of Accessible Art Fair and CEO of SM Art Advisory is working with Brussels' leading 5 star hotel, Amigo and its restaurant, Bocconi to organise dinners with artists.
This first PWI Dinner with an Artist is your chance to meet Maya Gold, an artist that Stephanie works with, and to hear about her work and inspiration around a table, with a great opportunity to network. During this time you will enjoy a 3 course menu prepared by the chef at Bocconi.
More about Maya Gold:
Maya Gold lives and works in Tel Aviv and Brussels. Gold is a graduate of the MFA program at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, where she also holds a teaching position. Gold is an acclaimed artist in the contemporary art scene and is represented by Alon Segev Gallery; one of the leading galleries in Israel. Gold has shown several solo exhibitions, in Israel and abroad, including at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Gold’s latest solo exhibition was held at the Minnesota Street Project, San Francisco. Gold has been awarded various prizes and grants including the Young Artists Award of the Israeli Ministry of Culture (2014) and her works have been acquired by museums and collectors worldwide.
Gold's paintings seem to possess a strong regard for realism, yet they also raise questions about painting itself and its history, from modernist abstraction in painting to the Romantic Tradition. She sets in motion the construction and deconstruction of an illusory space, distortions of scale, and multiple perspectives. Gold's images occupy a dual state: they unfold a concurrent process of zooming in and out, enlargement and miniaturization, causing an unstable perspective. The work results in a discourse which goes beyond mere formalism, touching upon issues of identity and place, the individual painting becomes an open arena of change, of constant transformation.
