Uri Hollander

Uri Hollander, PhD (poet, musician, lecturer and researcher of art and literature) was born in Tel Aviv in 1979. He graduated summa cum laude from the Israeli Music Conservatory in Tel Aviv, and from the Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students of Tel Aviv University. He obtained his Ph.D. from the department of Hebrew literature of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and has been a research fellow at Harvard University, Ben-Gurion University, and Tel Aviv University. 

Hollander served as the artistic director of the Metula Poetry Festival and has been writing regularly published columns at Haaretz and Maariv, through which he has been exploring, among other things, a wide assortment of ideas having to do with the canonicity of modern art and literature, constructions of identity and otherness in Israeli culture, and the relationships between literature and music. He has gained substantial experience in senior management of art and cultural institutions – as the artistic director of the Ralli Museums, Caesarea, as the director of the Artist Residence Herzliya, and as a member of the Mifal HaPais Council for Culture and the Arts.

Hollander has published three books of poems, two books of E.E. Cummings and Max Jacob's poetry in Hebrew translation, and eight books of critical essays about modern art, literature, and music. He was awarded the Fulbright Post-Doctoral Fellowship, the Dan David Prize scholarship, the Israeli minister of Education award for young poets, and the Prime Minister's Prize for Hebrew Literary Works.
