CFIM is please to announce a visit the 2017 Venice Biennale. The trip will feature guided tours with a top Curator from Israel Museum 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.
Of special interest will be Israeli artist Hadassa Goldvicht’s site-specific “House of Life” installation at the Palazzo Querini Stampalia curated by Dr. Amitai Mendelsohn, a Senior Curator of Israeli Art. Goldvicht’s most comprehensive work to date, “House of Life” is based on hours of filmed conversations with 86-year-old Aldo Izzo, keeper of the ancient Jewish cemetery in Venice, and residents of the Venice Ghetto, in a setting evocative of the cemetery itself.
If you would like to join the trip, please consider registering soon, as hotel space on the Grand Canal in Venice is very limited.
A full schedule for the trip will follow as Biennale program components are announced.
