Cabri is a kibbutz in Western Galilee. It includes the Gottesman Etching Center and an art gallery. For many years it was the residence place of sculptor Yechiel Shemi, Israel Prize winner and the first Israeli artist from whom New York’s Museum of Modern Art acquired work. The video shows an opening dedicated to artist Tobi Harel and to poet Ronny Someck, yet its message goes beyond that. It shows that contemporary art production can grow not only in an urban environment, but it can flourish in the country as well.
