The Nation’s Groves: Artist Dor Guez in Conversation with Sara Reisman” at the 8th Floor

Jerusalem-born artist Dor Guez will speak with Sara Reisman, director of the 8th Floor, about how his work has been inspired by the Israeli government’s reforestation efforts. His photography uses the landscape and flora of Israel to highlight lesser-known aspects of the region’s history, such as the pressed flowers kept as souvenirs by late 19th- and early 20th-century religion pilgrims.

Location: The 8th Floor, 17 West 17th Street, 8th Floor
