ARTIST AND EPOCH

The exhibition entitled "Artist and Epoch" on show at the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia is dedicated to the 145th anniversary of Shalom Koboshvili's birth. Shalom Koboshvili (1876-1941) is the foremost Jewish painter in Georgia. His work is connected with the Jewish Historic-Ethnographic Museum, where he worked as a watchman in the latter years of his life. The exhibition represents the epoch spanning the years of the artist's life (1876-1941), and includes up to 150 exhibits. Apart from Shalom Koboshvili's artworks, the exhibition also features thematic paintings and graphic works by David Gvelesiani; the diverse collection of the Georgian National Museum; 19th and early 20th-century Jewish garments, textiles, religious, ritual or everyday items; photographs preserved in the archives of the David Baazov Museum of History of the Jews of Georgia and Georgian-Jewish Relations; Dimitri Ermakov's photo archives; as well as documentary and archival materials provided by the National Archives of Georgia and the National Library. The exhibition has been enhanced with multimedia components and a short documentary film "The Guardian of Memories," created for the media platform Chai Khana as part of the project "The legacy of Georgia's once-vibrant Jewish communities," which is supported by the Embassy of Israel in Georgia. Curator: Lela Tsitsuashvili Designer: David Janiashvili Exhibition duration: December 22nd, 2021 - May 5th, 2022
