Birmingham’s relationship to famed Israeli artist Yaacov Agam is explored in an exhibit currently on display at the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts.

“Yaacov Agam: Metamorphic” features over 30 small works by Agam, entirely from private collections in the Birmingham area. The exhibition highlights works spanning multiple decades with a strong emphasis on Agam’s popular Agamograph technique, which utilizes lenticular printing to create different images in a single artwork when viewed from multiple angles.

Agam visited Birmingham last summer to sign “Complex Vision,” his work on the front of the Callahan Eye Hospital at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, just blocks from AEIVA. Originally installed in 1976, “Complex Vision” was disassembled in 2014 for a year-long restoration project.

The AEIVA exhibit will be displayed through Aug. 20. It is curated by John Fields, and supported in part by Judy and Hal Abroms and AEIVA members.
