"Mini Israel" - 70 Models, 45 Artists, One SpaceMarch 23, 2006-August 22, 2006
Location: Ayala Zacks Abramov Pavilion for Israel Art
Curator: Larry Abramson
In a single, undivided space, artist Larry Abramson brings together works by over forty Israeli artists of diverse ages and backgrounds, with one thing in common: their choice to create, each in his or her different way, a model of reality. The exhibition resonates with utopian models from far and near, as well as with models that have become central to Israel's leisure culture, such as the Second Temple model from the Holyland Hotel (currently being relocated to the Israel Museum) and the new Mini Israel model located near Latrun. The exhibition aims to unravel the illusion of a uniform, homogeneous Israeli order, and to propose in its stead a heterogeneous space of difference, plurality, and simultaneity.
