Congratulations to Galit Eilat, recipient of the 2017 – 2018 Keith Haring Fellowship in Art and Activism at Bard College.
Eilat, an independent curator, writer, and founding director of the Israeli Center for Digital Art in Holon (2001 – 2010), has been selected as the fourth recipient of the Keith Haring Fellowship in Art and Activism. Made possible through a five year-grant from the Keith Haring Foundation, the Haring Fellowship is an annual award for a scholar, activist, or artist to teach and conduct research at CCS Bard and the Human Rights Project. Eilat succeeds Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti, of Decolonizing Architecture in Beit Sahour, Palestine, who held the Fellowship for 2016-17. Prior recipients include Dutch artist Jeanne van Heeswijk, and Delhi-based artist Shuddhabrata Sengupta.
