Grand Central Art Center and Artis
present a talk by Joshua Simon
Curating in Context – Joshua Simon on The Museums of Bat Yam
Presented by Artis & Grand Central Art Center
Tuesday, April 8
@ Grand Central Art Center
Joshua Simon will speak about his work as the Director and Chief Curator for The Museums of Bat Yam, a complex of three museums located in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area in Israel that functions as both a center for contemporary art and a community museum, offering a wide platform for cultural research, theory and criticism. Simon, in discussion with GCAC Director and Chief Curator John Spiak, will explore the role of community-centered arts institutions situated in predominantly immigrant neighborhoods on the periphery of major urban centers – Tel Aviv, in the case of MoBY, and Los Angeles, in the case of GCAC.
The program is a GCAC collaboration with Artis.
Artis is an independent nonprofit organization that broadens international awareness and understanding of contemporary art from Israel.
The event will be immediately followed by a
