Second Show: Contemporary Art from The Israel Museum, Jerusalem A selection of Israeli and international works dealing with such subjects as introspection, fantasy worlds, myths, and reflections about the history of art and culture. Some of the works address the notion of the home and the relationship between inner and outer space, establishing a dialogue with Mani House – formerly an ordinary home, where contemporary works from the Museum’s collection are exhibited for the second time. The show features some of the most prominent artists active in Israel and abroad today, including Pierre Bismuth, Claire Fontaine, Erez Israeli, Efrat Natan, Pipilotti Rist, Ugo Rondinone, Mika Rottenberg, and Shai Zurim. One of the first houses built in Tel Aviv in 1909, Mani House was purchased and restored by Bank Leumi, and now serves as a visitors’ center and art center.
