Photomenta - Photography from the Mediterranean


Marie Hudelot, heritage , 2013 

 

 

MUZA, the Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv, is pleased to present the first Photomenta - a large-scale photography exhibition opening at the museum. The exhibition, which will take place every five years, presents hundreds of works by dozens of participants from numerous Mediterranean countries. Serving as a bridge that extends over seas and peoples, borders and political conflicts, the photographs on display offer a mental, artistic and narrative point of encounter with the "others" in our vicinity. The exhibition extends throughout the museum galleries, pavilions and archaeological garden, unfurling like a maritime map or fishing net. The exhibition's various sites serve as port cities, while the series of photographs on display appear alongside the museum's archaeological and historical treasures.
