CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo is thrilled to announce the appointment of Tamar Margalit as its new Curator.
Margalit comes to the Center after serving as Curatorial Assistant at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where she was part of the curatorial team for the Donald Judd retrospective, organized by Ann Temkin, and worked on new acquisitions to MoMA’s collection; and prior to that as Director of Exhibitions at Luxembourg & Dayan, New York, where she curated solo exhibitions for Alex Da Corte and Enrico Baj and several group exhibitions, as well as organized a performance series with new commissions by Madeline Hollander and Aki Sasamoto, among others. Other curatorial projects were shown at Columbia University’s Wallach Art Gallery, New York; Sommer Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv; Charim Ungar Contemporary, Berlin; and Tel Aviv Artists House. Margalit holds a BA in Art History and Economics from Tel Aviv University and an MA in Curatorial Studies from Columbia University.
At CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo, Margalit will be charged with further expanding the institution’s program in collaboration with Nicola Trezzi, Director of the institution, since 2018. “It is with great excitement that I welcome Tamar at CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo. This is a very special moment for the institution as we just launched our new identity and trilingual website, and we are approaching our 25th anniversary. I have known Tamar’s work from my time as US Editor of Flash Art International in New York and I have been following it from afar since my arrival in Israel. Her rigorous approach and undeniable devotion to artists is what our institution needs right now,” Trezzi said in a statement.
Margalit’s first curatorial project will be a solo exhibition by Rona Yefman, which will open at CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo in April 2022.
