TEL AVIV.- Tel Aviv Museum of Art announced that it has appointed Dalit Matatyahu curator of Israeli Art - effective May 2018, when Ellen Ginton, who has been Senior Israeli Art Curator since 1987, retires.

Born in Jerusalem (1969), Dalit Matatyahu is a graduate (1993) of the Midrasha Faculty of Arts, has a BA and studied for an MA at the Department of Fine Arts, Haifa University, is an artist (1993-1997) and was awarded the 1997 Young Artist Award. Since 2010 she is associate curator at the Department of Prints and Drawings at TAMA; she curated, among others, the exhibitions "Moby Dick" (October 2013), "Objektiv: Josef Albers, Oran Hoffmann" (July 2014), "Talush (Rootless)" (August 2016) and "Yifat Bezalel: Tehilla" (November 2017). She has published many essays on Israeli and international art in journals and catalogues.

Suzanne Landau, TAMA Director, welcomed the appointment, saying "Matatyahu is a curator with intellect, depth and originality, as evident in the exhibitions she has curated at the museum."

TAMA's Chief Curator, Doron Rabina: "Choosing Dalit is a promise of stepping in untrodden ways and of unexpected gazes on Israeli art. Dalit has a strong affinity to the written word and original perceptions of the visible. These will offer TAMA a fresh, fearless and responsible touch with Israeli art. "

Ellen Ginton: "I welcome the appointment of a curator who writes, researches and is sensitive, who perceives the text as the heart and motivator of curatorial work."

Dalit Matatyahu said she was :"delighted, anxious and excited to take part in the processes of thought and definitions about Israeli art and the museum's place as host for artists and philosophers as partners in these processes. I believe in the power of the past and present art community to create a dialogue that begins with 'self-appraisal' and continues with action."
