This fall, the ICA presents the largest U.S. exhibition of work by Israeli artist Nir Evron at VCUarts’ Depot Gallery. Through film, video and photography, Evron examines the architecture and built environment of his home country and its areas of conflict. Rather than illustrating explicit images of conflict, Evron concentrates on architectural sites and pristine landscapes.
Depot Gallery, 814 West Broad St
Tues–Fri, 10–5 / Sat & Sun, 12–5
Closed Mondays & Dec 19—Jan 3 for Winter Break
Free and open to the public

He is represented by Chelouche Gallery, Tel Aviv.
In conjunction with the presentation of Projected Claims, Evron is in residence at VCU’s acclaimed School of the Arts during the fall 2015 semester, teaching in the Department of Photography and Film.
