An exhibition with the participation of Polish contemporary artists will open on November 8 at the Petah Tiqva Art Museum.

The exhibition named “Operations on Places” will be curated by Waldemar Tatarczuk from Poland. It focuses on cities as a source of memories and inspiration.

Most of the works which document various activities taking place at different sites in a modern city such as for example the video work of the famous Polish artist Mirosław Bałka which displays the map of Lublin placed in the Nazi concentration camp Majdanek, hints at the message of the exhibition and defines its character. The works presented at the exhibition relate to the city of Lublin. However, the thoughts that they give rise to are relevant with regard to any city. The question whether city streets are a good place for art remains unanswered.

 

Participating artists:

Agata Rucinska, Barbara Gryka, Arutyun Sargsian, Mirosław Bałka, Cezary Bodzianowski, Adina Bar-On, Robert Kusmirowski.

The works courtesy of the artists and the Labyrinth Gallery from Lublin.

Opening hours: on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 10:00-14:00, on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 16:00-20:00, entrance fee NIS 20
