Exhibit in Storefront NY, opening 7/3/2013, 6pm
Aircraft Carrier surveys the period between two crises of capitalism, 1973 and 2008, to understand the radical change in Israeli architecture. The eventful year of 1973 marks a watershed in the workings of global capitalism, in the American strategic interest in the Middle East, and in Israel's social, economic and political structures. Together, these elements, shaped by territorial struggles and energy crises, dramatically transformed Israeli architecture. The exhibition deals with this transformative period and with the American influences through which its innovations, and tragedies, were enabled. Curated by Erez Ella, Milana Gitzin Adiram and Dan Handel. With works by Tal Erez, Assaf Evron, Fernando Guerra, Florian Holzherr, Nira Pereg and Jan Tichy.
