  • Collaboration with the City of Los Angeles on a solo exhibition by Dror Yisrael Hemed, “Standing Out”, as part of the LGBT Heritage Month, celebrated this summer, June-July 2019.

    The exhibition is on view until August 1st at IAILA (Israeli Art In Los Angeles), an art space curated and directed by Refael, in North East LA.

  • A group exhibition titled “Dreaming of a…” curated by Refael, will also be on view starting July 27th at Charlie James Gallery in Chinatown, Los Angeles. Counter pointing the glamorous image of LA as seen in Hollywood cinema, this exhibition will focus on local landscapes seen by people who take public transportation, or even walk the gritty streets of the city of angels.

    Opening Reception:
    Charlie James Gallery
    969 Chung King Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90012
    Saturday, July 27th, 6-9pm.

  • And abroad: Refael is also one of the curators of the Jerusalem Biennale, currently working on a group exhibition by members of JAI - Jewish Artists Initiative of Southern California.

    Opening in October 2019, in Jerusalem, Israel, this exhibition will consist of a multi-channel video installation and presentation of unique artist books, promises to be a trans-Atlantic cross-pollination event between Jewish SoCal and Israeli cultures.
