Lihie Talmor Adamit – transient microcosm
Lihie Talmor Adamit shows photographs taken during the construction process of the newly built Museum of Tolerance in the politically divided city of Jerusalem.

In 1980 she moved with her family to Venezuela, studied at the Center of Studies for the Graphic Arts (CEGRA) in Caracas and painted in Walter Margulis’ studio. Since 1984 she has been working on art projects, teaching and participating in workshops and residencies in Italy, Belgium, the United States, Israel, Colombia and Venezuela.
