Hollywood and other Myths

Hollywood and other Myths

The exhibition focuses on the increasing affinity between video and cinema. The total rejection of Hollywood style and cinematic language of the 1960s and 1970s gradually turned in the 1990s to complex relations of enchanted fascination and dismissal. All the cinematic characteristics that made cinema
into a thrilling medium are present here: high-volume emotions, high production value and a rich, all-encompassing soundtrack. Participating artists: Pierre Bismuth, Aukje Dekker, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Jesper Just, Tom Pnini, Julian Rosefeldt, Guido van der Werve, Francesco Vezzoli.
 

The exhibition and the catalogue were made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel; the French Committee of Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Ostrovsky Family Fund; Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, Switzerland; Embassy of Switzerland in Israel; Mondriaan Fund; A donation in memory of art lover, Dror Shalit, made by his wife and daughter; and the Danish Arts Foundation.
