Artis is pleased to present a nonprofit booth at the third edition of NADA NYC from May 9-11 at Basketball City. Our booth will showcase the work of New York-based artist Tamar Ettun, including a suite of seven photographs, as well as musical instruments and sculptures from Performing Stillness, a series of objects assembled from mundane materials that evoke physical gestures and bodily movements. Click here for available works.

All proceeds from the sale of work will benefit the artist and the Artis Grant Program, which awards grants of up to $25,000 towards innovative exhibitions that advance curatorial thinking in relation to contemporary art from Israel; provide access to a wide range of communities and publics; and engage in meaningful modes of cultural exchange.

Ettun's solo exhibition One and One, One and Two, One and Three, One and Four is currently on view through May 1, 2014 at Braverman Gallery, Tel Aviv.

About Tamar Ettun
Tamar Ettun is a Brooklyn-based artist from Jerusalem working in performance and sculpture. Ettun received her MFA from Yale University (2010) and was awarded the Alice English Kimball Fellowship. She studied at Cooper Union (2007), while earning her BFA from Bezalel Academy, where she graduated with honors. Ettun’s solo exhibitions and performances include The Lion Who Liked Strawberries, PS3 Studio, The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, commissioned by Art Production Fund (2012); One Thing Leads To Another, Indianapolis Museum of Art, and Performa 11 presented by RECESS (2011); One Thing Leads To Another: Part 2, Andrea Meislin Gallery (2012); and Empty Is Also, in collaboration with Emily Coates for Performa presented by the X-Initiative (2009). Group exhibitions and performances include: Van Alen Institute for Performa (2013), Abrons Art Center (2013), Socrates Sculpture Park (2012, 2013), apexart (2012) Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco (2012), and more. Ettun was recently awarded the MacDowell Fellowship and is currently an artist-in-residence at Abrons Art Center, New York, where she founded the dance group Moving Company. Drawing from both traditional Jewish rituals and postmodern dance theory and gestures, Moving Company constructs hybrid pieces that reflect on human aspiration and survival. Verticality, stillness, repetition, and vibrant compositions of the body are juxtaposed with unique sculptural objects constructed by Ettun.
