Maya Bamberger is a curator based in Tel Aviv. Currently, Bamberger is the curator of RawArt Gallery, a gallery in Tel Aviv dedicated to representing emerging and experimental artists. Recently curated exhibitions at RawArt include Dov Heller’s “Nirim” (2021), Sharon Glazberg’s “Nowhere” (2021), Sagie Azoulay’s “Ernie” (2020), the group exhibition “Raw Art” (2019), and Maya Perry’s digital residency youaresafe.net (2020).
In her practice, Bamberger examines the notion of the “ignorant curator” and the limits of curatorial practice. She explores alternative ways of explaining contemporary art. As an independent curator, Bamberger co-curated a solo exhibition of work by artist Hilla Toony Navok at the OnCurating Project Space in Zurich, along with curator Ronny Koren, and accompanied by curator Sergio Edelzstein. This show was part of a multi-format series titled, “Choreographing the Public.”
Bamberger holds a MAS in curatorial studies from Professor Dorothee Richter’s program at the Zurich University of the Arts, and a BA in art history and cognitive science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her writing regularly appears in OnCurating magazine.
Bamberger is a curator-in-residence at Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn, September 1–November 30, 2021. The residency is conducted virtually.
