Hagar Bril was born in Jerusalem. She currently lives in Kfar Saba and works with artists and exhibition spaces all around Israel. Bril is an independent curator specializing in site-specific installations. Currently, she is the curator of the Galil Gallery at Western Galilee College in Akko, and artistic advisor at the Hanina Gallery in Tel Aviv. Bril is a graduate (Cum Laude) of the Marc Rich Honors Program in the Humanities and Arts at Tel Aviv University and holds a Diploma of Curating and Gallery Management from Shorashim Art School & Gallery. Currently, Bril is completing her M.A in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in the Arts at Tel Aviv University. Alongside her curatorial work, Bril founded “La Bottega - Artists’ Paperwork”, a consulting service focused on artistic content for independent artists.
Bril’s curatorial projects explore the processes which transform the single artistic object into a vast surrounding, thus allowing new approaches of viewing. In the exhibitions she curates, Bril investigates and questions contemporary notions such as community, spatial perception, participation, and active spectatorship in the context of space and place. Through these ideas, she examines the different ways in which installation art and new media are re-shaping the boundaries of the aesthetic experience.
Bril has curated exhibitions in various venues, such as Bezalel 7 – Image Room (Jerusalem), Neurotitan Gallery (Berlin), Alfred - Cooperative Institute for Art and Culture (Tel Aviv), Janco-Dada Museum (Ein-Hod Artists Village), Binyamin Gallery (Tel Aviv), and Indie Gallery (Tel Aviv), among others.
