If you plan to be in Jerusalem between September 16 and October 31, you might be interested in the first Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art.


Modeled after the 118-year-old Venice Biennale, the Jerusalem Biennale will provide “a stage for contemporary creative forces that relate to the Jewish world of content.”

"What is contemporary Jewish art? Our curators and exhibiting artists come from very different backgrounds and traditions. How can we find common ground from such varied interpretations? The Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art serves as the platform for both exhibition and debate.

"We hope that this celebration of contemporary Jewish art will become a regular fixture on the global Jewish art scene, taking place every two years in Jerusalem, the spiritual and creative center of the Jewish world," Biennale initiator, Rami Ozeri said in a press release.


Dozens of Israeli and international artists, including the critically-acclaimed American painter and sculptor Tobi Kahn, will exhibit at five different locations throughout the city – the Achim Chasid complex, the First Station, Hechal Shlomo, Beit Avi-Chai and the Musrara neighborhood.
