The Israel Museum presents Bizarre Perfection, an exhibition that celebrates virtuoso artistry and masterful craftmanship across cultures and throughout time. On display are fifty works created in a variety of labor-intensive techniques by artists spanning the millenniafrom unknown ancient craftspeople to such contemporary artists as Tom Friedman, Liza Lou, Ron Mueck, Roxy Paine and Yoshihiro Suda. Drawn from the Israel Museums encyclopaedic collection and also featuring a number of exceptional international loans, Bizarre Perfection is the second in a series of exhibitions designed to emphasize illuminating connections among works of art from across the breadth of the Museums permanent collections.

In a world inundated with mass-production and enamored with technology, we are delighted to offer our audiences a celebration of creative workmanship and dazzling technical skill, said James S. Snyder, Anne and Jerome Fisher Director of the Israel Museum. From anonymous ancient craftspeople to known contemporary figures, these artisans and artists demonstate a special reverence forand even obsession withdetail, producing works so exquisite that they inspire amazement and even disbelief.
