Monument to Decay: Israeli Pavilion in Venice

During opening days of the 57th Venice Art Biennale, I meet Miami-based curator Tami Katz-Freiman to explore the multi-media installation that artist Gal Weinstein created for the Israeli Pavilion. The artist used glue, mold, metal, and felt to transform the shining white cube into a monument to decay. As you listen the conversation we recorded in 2017, keep in mind the mounting tensions in the Middle East today. Consider the larger question of how nations choose to represent themselves in the context of a high profile international art biennial. Think about the enduring quality of art as portent and marker of change. With Katz-Freiman as our guide, we learn the history of the Israeli pavilion and delve into the process and poetry of Gal Weinstein’s work.
