Far From the Front Lines / Artistic Dialog Beyond Borders

Evanston Art Center
1717 Central Street 
Evanston, IL 
September 7 to October 1, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, September 8, 2017,  6 - 8 p.m. 

Gabriella Boros, Susan Dickman, Ellen Holtzblatt and Judith Joseph were selected to participate in this exhibition, curated by Dorit Jordan Dotan, which brings together twenty-two North American contemporary artists responding to the call to create art about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As in many mediums, perspective derives from distance; being far away opens up a natural space for new viewpoints.  Artists who are Far From the Front Lines have created an opportunity for artful dialog beyond borders. It allows both the audience and the artists themselves to actively promote meaningful change in our minds, where all borders ultimately reside.
