I was proud to represent Israel art amongst many international artists who were invited too The theme of the exhibition was "Memory and Dream". Memories convey our feelings for the Past while Dreams constitute our longings for the future. I felt pride mixed with surprise when artists asked me for assistance in forming connections in Israel.
