Web_Noam "Current Dilemmas In Exhibiting Art In Israel," will take place on Thursday, January 21, 7 - 9 p.m. in Koret Hall.

The Israel Museum is the largest cultural institution in Israel and is ranked among the world’s leading art and archaeology museums. In 2010, the Museum completed a major renovation of its 20-acre campus in Jerusalem, opening new galleries and public spaces. Three years later, the Museum appointed Dr. Noam Gal as the Horace and Grace Goldsmith Curator of Photography and the Head of the Noel and Harriette Levine Photography Department at the Museum.

The international photography collection that Dr. Gal oversees is considered one of the best in the world — it includes rare and unique masterpieces and represents all modes of photography, from the medium's formative years to contemporary projects. The Department is also renowned for its dedication to the promotion and encouragement of contemporary Israeli photographers.

Congregation Beth Sholom (CBS) invites you to learn from Dr. Gal about the state of photography and video in Israeli art, the growing international recognition of contemporary Israeli photographers, some of the challenges inherent in navigating public opinion as a curator of contemporary art in Israel, and his vision regarding the relationship between education and photography. Dr. Gal's talk will be accompanied by images and will be followed by a conversation with the audience.

Snacks and refreshments will be served. Tickets are $10 per person and are available for purchase at: https://www.universe.com/cbsachshavyisraelphoto
