Event Details

For Core Dance’s 2022-23 1830 EST: Artist Talk Series, artists Maya Gelfman and Roie Avidan will discuss Mind the Heart! Project and their work on the upcoming mural in Core Dance’s alley on April 20 at 6:30 PM.

Mind the Heart! (est. 2009) is a worldwide art project by Israeli artists Maya Gelfman & Roie Avidan. In the past decade, the project has reached more than 100 cities across 5 continents: from New York to Bangkok, Delhi to London, from the Israel National Museum and the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. to orphanages in Kenya and Uganda.

The project works at the intersection of art and social awareness. It engages the public domain with the aim of getting both the artists and the audiences to be fully present, to ‘be here now’. This is achieved through tangible street-art but expands on that across mediums and disciplines, to temporary installations in the wild, performances, poetry and public actions. The works are made with soft materials that clash with the concrete jungle. They deal with the power of choice, the cyclical nature of things, acknowledging wounds in order to heal, and interconnectedness.
