Major Retrospective of Israeli Artist Micha Ullman on View at the Israel Museum


JERUSALEM.- The Israel Museum presents the first museum retrospective of the work of Israeli artist Micha Ullman, spanning the artist’s fifty-year career in sculpture, drawing, and installation. Sands of Time: The Work of Micha Ullman brings together approximately 120 works, dating from the 1970s through the present, including a 200-square-meter site-specific installation created by Ullman in celebration of the exhibition using his own distinctive sand-throwing technique. The exhibition features nearly 50 of Ullman’s indoor sculptures made of iron and sand, and 70 works on paper from the Israel Museum, together with loans from collections from Israel and abroad. Micha Ullman, born in Tel Aviv in 1939, is known for his subterranean outdoor installations, some of which barely protrude from the ground, and his sculptures made of iron and sand, which address such universal themes as home and place, and absence and emptiness.
