Naama Tsabar

Israel / USA

Naama Tsabar born 1982, Israel. Lives and works in New York, USA.
Tsabar’s practice fuses elements from sculpture, music, performance and architecture. Collaborating with local communities of female identifying and gender non-conforming performers, Tsabar writes a new feminist and queer history of mastery. Her interactive works expose hidden spaces and systems, reconceive gendered narratives, and shift the passive viewing experience to one of active participation. The artist draws attention to the muted and unseen by propagating sound through space and sculptural form. Resting someplace between sculpture and instrument, form and sound, Tsabar’s work lingers on the intimate, sensual and corporeal potentials within these transitional states.
Tsabar’s work has been displayed in over 20 solo exhibitions worldwide including: The Wadsworth Atheneum museum, Hartford, Connecticut, US; Bass Museum, Miami, US; Nasher Museum of Art, Duke, North Carolina, US; Guggenheim Museum, NY, US; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel. Naama Tsabar has participated in numerous important group exhibitions, including Center for Contemporary art, Tel Aviv, Israel; Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium; Extracity Kunsthal, Antwerp, Belgium, Moma/P.S.1, NY, US; The Bucharest Biennale for Young Artists, Bucharest, Romania, among others. Her performances took place in: The Watermill Center Galla benefit, NY, US (2018), DO DISTURB Festival, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France; The High Line Art, NY, US. In 2024, Naama Tsabar will present a new solo exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Germany.
