Francis Alÿs: The Green Line

August 11, 2005-November 26, 2005
Location: Billy Rose Pavilion
Curator: Suzanne Landau
This year Francis Alÿs came to Jerusalem under the auspices of the Museum’s Lindy and Ed Bergman Visiting Artists Program to give new meaning to the political/ poetic act of walking, which he has performed many times in different contexts and locations. During several trips to Jerusalem, Alÿs carried a leaking can of green paint along the border that Moshe Dayan marked on a map of the city in 1948. The film of this act, together with Alÿs’s interviews with Israelis and Palestinians, will be screened in the exhibition.
