Gad Salner & Vadim Tarasov


Lower League Football in the Middle East

 

Thursday 28 August, 7:00pm

FREE, booking required

 

Join us at QUAD for a talk by Israeli based artist Gad Salner – an exhibiting artist in QUAD’s ‘The Pride and the Passion’ exhibition – with his project partner Vadim Tarasov. Together they work on the project ‘Kaduregel-Shefel’ (translated as ‘low football’).

 

Gad is a photographer and lower-league enthusiast, and his work examines how football has brought Palestinian and Israeli people together in common cause. From forgotten Arab villages of the north to dusty Jewish neighborhoods in the south, Gad has visited places where the seemingly ever-present tension between cultures evaporated.

 

This talk has been generously supported by the Embassy of Israel, London.
