For the first time in the history of Herziliya museum, a group exhibition of 13 Palestinian artists citizens of Israel has been organized by curator Tal Ben Zvi, under the title "men in the sun", at the Herzliya Museum of contemporary art, nearby Tel Aviv.
The exhibition will be open from the 12th of June 2009 until the 13th of September 2009. The title of the exhibition was borrowed from one of the works of Abed Abdi, also exhibited at the museum, which was inspired by a novel of Palestinian novelist Ghassan Kanafani.
This is my second experience in curating the huge creative project in which fifty Arab and Jewish artists, and two other artists from Germany, are taking part this year. The project is held as part of the annual tradition initiated by Ethos – The Municipal Association for Art, Culture and Sport, in collaboration with the Beit Hagefen Arab Jewish Center, and the Wadi al-Nisnas Committee – the Arab neighborhood that has hosted this project continuously since 1994.
