Minshar School of Art - David Khakhami St 18, Tel Aviv,
For some reason the word ‘dream’ doesn’t fit the current zeitgeist’s lexicon. What would Salvador Dali or Martin Luther King say to the anti-dream-ers? For as long as Sharonna Karni Cohen can remember, she has been a proud dreamer. While aware that not all dreams come true, the future of Israel as a subject of conversation has been a pure and optimistic fascination. She set out on her own creative pursuit to articulate just how bright this future can be.
The project brought together a collection of 500 dreams of coexistence, culture, environment, peace and freedom. “Look outside your window. What are your dreams for Israel in 2048?” was the question posed. Prominent Israeli artist Amit Trainin illustrated these dreams into one artwork. It was first presented as a 1400 m² installation in Rabin Square.
The artwork includes Venetian inspired water tunnels in Jerusalem, cloud factories generating rain in Haifa and an Express Line to India travelling throughout the Middle East. Have fun spotting some visions and please join us for the exhibition opening on November 18th at 8pm.
The exhibition will be open until December 14th and there is a conversation with the artist and creator on November 21st
