Tel Aviv Highlights: February 2012
Israeli Wine Expo 2012
Israeli wine has been receiving many accolades in recent years, the latest were given by the prestigious Wine Advocate magazine. This marks a great opportunity to get familiar with what the Israeli wine industry has to offer. The Israeli wine exhibition, also known as ISRAWINEXPO, was originally intended for professionals but the general public is also welcome. The entrance fee of 60 NIS includes a glass of wine and 10 coupons for wine tasting (Israel Trade Fairs & Convention Center, February 21st, 16:00-22:00).
Surprises from the Safe: an Exhibition
The original purpose of coins, which were invented in Greece in 6 BCE, was economic. Yet at the same time it also allowed for a way to praise and glorify rulers, and it became a means through which political and religious messages could be spread. Coins, in effect, reflected historical events of nations.
The exhibition displays coins which reflect historical events and just plain history. They are presented to the public for the very first time. (Eretz Israel Museum, through August 2012).
Inbal Pinto & Avshalom Polak Dance Company: Bombyx Mori
Bombyx Mori ("silkworm" in Latin), the new work by Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Polak Dance Company will hold its premiere this month. The work takes the audience into a string-filled labyrinth that becomes a forest of images that awaken long forgotten feelings and stimulates the audience's dormant nerves. Like previous works of the company, this too is lively and colorful (17th-18th February, Suzanne Dellal Centre).
Round About: Face to Face
The exhibition presents artists from the Far East, Australia and New Zealand that make up a global community divided by borders, culture and religion but have the same goal, which is to express themselves creatively. The exhibition puts an emphasis on portraits, which explore different religions, ethnicities and gender (through February 10th, Tel Aviv Museum of Art).
