Three Israeli artists working internationally were included in Flash Art magazine’s list of the “Top 100 Emerging Artists” in the world.  

Keren Cytter, a visual artist who works in Berlin, is ranked number 2, while Elad Lassry, who works primarily in film and photography in Los Angeles, shares the sixth position with a Georgian artist. Ohad Meromi, an Israeli who resides in New York, is ranked at 89. 

The October issue of the magazine also includes extensive coverage of Israeli art, and features works by Israeli artists commissioned exclusively for the magazine.  

According to the magazine’s critics, Cytter’s narratives, although extremely fragmented, have a tendency to embody the post-modern self-awareness of the characters in her films, which have been shown in museums and galleries around Europe. The photographs, films, and collages of Elad Lassry are warm and direct, generic, clean, and above all open to interpretation. 

The list was compiled from answers to a questionnaire sent to over 100 museum directors, curators and critics.
