Join the Italian Friends of the Israel Museum

Thursday, October 11 – Sunday, October 14

We are delighted to announce the Italian Friends of the Israel Museum’s trip to Venice to celebrate the 16th Architecture Biennale.

CFIM has pleased to offer this opportunity for what has become an annual tradition of the Italian Friends, rotating each year between celebrations for the Art Biennale and the Architecture Biennale.

Participants will be welcomed by our Venetian Friends and enjoy a curated-led tour by the Israel Museum’s own  Tania Coen as well as guided visits to the Giardini, the Arsenale, and the most intriguing off-site exhibitions and national pavilions. You will also have the unique opportunity to be hosted privately by Venice-based collectors, galleries, and sister institutions.

James Snyder, Director Emeritus of the Israel Museum will be joining the trip.
