Galit Eilat

Keith Haring Fellow in Art and Activism


Galit Eilat is an independent curator and writer whose current work brings together artists and experts from different disciplines to look at the relationship between the essence of sovereignty and the boundaries of the political act. She is the founding director of the Israeli Center for Digital Art in Holon, where her curatorial projects included Liminal Spaces, a collaborative research project and traveling seminar that brought Israeli and Palestinian artists, activists, and scholars together to imagine how it might be possible, through art and culture, to overcome political, social, and physical barriers. She is cocurator of the 31st São Paulo Biennial and has curated exhibitions at the Van Abbemuseum in Einhoven, where she served as research curator. She was also the cofounder and chief editor of Maarav, an online arts and culture magazine, and president of the Akademie der Künste der Welt. At Bard: 2017–18.
