Inspired by the cultural melting pot he witnessed growing up in Israel in the 1960s, Drew Tal seeks to explore the beauty in diverse cultural customs and rituals. Now based in New York, the artist creates poignant photo illustrations based on his travels in the Middle East. Tal has a show coming up at the Rezan Has Museum in Istanbul, Turkey on view September 14 through October 31. The Rezan Has Museum and Istanbul Bienale are sponsoring Tal’s upcoming exhibition, “Worlds Apart,” at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery in New York, which will run from October 10 through December 14.
