Michal Chelbin & The Black Eye

Based in Tel Aviv, Michal Chelbin (Israeli, b. 1974) graduated from the Wizo Academy of Design and Education in Israel in 2001. Chelbin was short listed for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in London 2009 and has been exhibiting her raw photographs at galleries around the world ever since. On October 23rd, 2010 M+B Gallery in West Hollywood will open a new show of Chelbin’s work called ‘The Black Eye’ comprised of portraits of young Eastern European athletes at professional wrestling schools in various states of exhaustion: sweaty, bruised and bored they are photographed in their first few minutes of recovery. The facial expressions on the young boys say it all if nothing at all. M+B, 612 North Almont Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90069, October 23 – December 4, 2010, Tuesday – Saturday, 10a – 6pm www.mbart.com
