Art Exhibition Design

This exhibition presents drawings from the Museum’s collection spanning a broad range of periods and places and includes works by Avigdor Arikha, Eugène Delacroix, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Aviva Uri, and Egon Schiele. Works are displayed according to such themes as collage, preparatory drawings, and the boundaries of drawing. However, they are neither classified nor interpreted – the viewer is invited to experience them without explanatory intervention and to reflect on the questions they raise. We used the intensity of displaying such a variety in a rather small gallery, to provide the visitor with an impact usually associated with the aesthetics of a workshop or the studio.

Curator: Meira Perry-Lehmann.
