Artis and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art presented a panel discussion focusing on curatorial methods of generating two-way cultural exchange. While many traditional exhibition formats and institutions are designed for a passive, receiving audience, this panel focused on the work of three curators, Cathérine Hug, Rene Morales, and Tim Voss, who discussed the cross-cultural merits of their work. Moderated by New York-based art writer Roslyn Bernstein.
Case in Point is a series of talks and thematic panel discussions that take place during Artis’ Curatorial Seminar in Israel. Through presentations and a moderated discussion, participants focus on the practices of international and Israel-based curators, and investigate contemporary topics in the field of curating.
