Kasmin, Shulamit Nazarian, and Spinello Projects are delighted to announce several acquisitions by North American institutions of work by Naama Tsabar, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Pérez Art Museum Miami, Florida; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California.

Naama Tsabar employs sculpture, photography, and performance to subvert the gender roles historically associated with musicianship. Appropriating and subverting the aggressive gestures of rock and roll and their associations with virility and power, Tsabar upends the implicit gender roles and coded behavior of music and nightlife.

Her most recent works and sonic installations weave together iconic actions and objects from rock music (the guitar, the amplifier, the microphone) with a more intimate portrayal of the artist’s body and its movement through, within, and into the surrounding architecture. The motifs of gender, disruption, destruction, and reconstruction recur throughout her work and performances.
