From November 30th, 2014 to February 5th, 2015, The Screening Room in Wynwood will present  a  new-media installation curated by Tami Katz-Freiman entitled "WarCraft" showcasing the work by Israeli artist Nevet Yitzhak.

Consisting of two single-channel video animations based on Afghan war rugs, Yitzhak, 38, raises questions about the representation and visibility of violence through artistic means making an emphasis on the paradox inherent in the juxtaposition of violence and decoration.

The story of the Afghan war rugs began with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, and has evolved further since the Allied invasion in 2001.
