She has presented some of her most personal and intimate works, making this the seminal exhibition of her career.
Amaler-Raviv will be hosting a final walk-through of the exhibition on Friday 2 October, the day the exhibition closes. This is a rare opportunity to engage with the artist and gain an understanding of her motivations. Contact the SAJM should you wish to attend. A number of her works are also available for sale.
