Hadas Maor is a contemporary art curator based in Tel Aviv. She received her academic training in art history and photography, as well as critical theory and hermeneutics. Since the late 1990s, she has been working with Israel’s leading contemporary art museums (among them the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the Haifa Museum of Art, the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon). Maor has curated solo shows for numerous Israeli and international artists, as well as large-scale, thematic group exhibitions such as “Embroidered Action,” “(after),” “Temporally,” “History of Violence,” “Living Room,” “showtime,” and others. These shows featured works by artists such as Nelly Agassi, Carlos Amorales, Kader Attia, Janet Cardiff, Jordi Colomer, Tsibi Geva, Mona Hatoum, Michal Heiman, Sigalit Landau, Maria Marshall, Ernesto Neto, Chiharu Shiota, Naama Tsabar, Wang Wei, Gal Weinstein and others. Maor’s curatorial work often addresses theoretical notions that pertain to contemporary existence. It strives to identify significant relations between Israeli and international art while interlinking the work of emerging young artists with that of established ones. A major emphasis in her work is promoting the creation of new, large-scale and site-specific works. Hadas Maor regularly contributes essays to artist books, catalogues, and other publications.
