Curator: Larry Abramson

Group Exhibition

Israel Museum

2006

In one space without partitions, artist Larry Abramson commissioned works by more than 40 Israeli artists of several generations, whose only common denominator is their choice, each in his own way, to create in a model format.

The exhibition echoes past and contemporary utopian models, as well as model sites that have become central to Israeli leisure culture, such as the old Second Temple model from the Holyland Hotel, which is currently being copied to the Israel Museum, and Mini Israel model near Latrun.

The exhibition unravels the illusion of a homogeneous and unified Israeli order, and offers a space of difference, multiplicity and simultaneity.
