On February 14, 2015 a series of new exhibitions and unique projects will open at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art. They are all informed by a pursuit of the complex space straddling the natural and cultural, or the realistic and unrealistic. On view are one-person shows by Tal Frank and Uriel Miron; a project by French artist Julien Salaud, one of the most interesting voices on the contemporary international art scene, who created a lit cosmological cave with three-dimensional murals as part of an artist class he held at the museum; a group exhibition turns its gaze inward on the museum's unique architecture, featuring works by Irit Tamari, Rotem Balva, Noa Zait and Shibetz Cohen; video works by Cliff Evans and by the American duo Aziz + Cucher will be screened for the first time in Israel; and Shay Zilberman and Ella Kandel's independent, site-specific projects will be on view.
The series Collection + will feature two shows: an exhibition of works from the Jacob Alkow Collection, curated by k1p3 architects; and a group show of contemporary Israeli photography from the museum's collection, "Signifiers of Place."
A varied program of encounters, lectures, and artist talks will be held during the months of these exhibitions.
