“On Monday, the Agnes Etherington Art Centre hosted acclaimed Argentinian-Israeli artist Diego Rotman, as he delivered a thought-provoking presentation on his latest project, The Eternal Sukkah.

Rotman, an academic, interdisciplinary artist and curator, has a particular interest in performance practices that engage local historiography, folklore research, art politics and Jewish culture.

In 2014, Rotman and fellow Israeli artist Lea Mauas built a sukkah (a Jewish ritual and dwelling), inspired by a Bedouin tent-like home common to those who live in the desert.
