Curating Abroad: Keshet Award

Our Executive Director, Louis Grachos, recently had the honor of serving as the Curator for the inaugural Keshet Award for Contemporary Art, founded by the Bar-Gil Avidan family, at Israel’s Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art.

The inaugural recipient, artist Guy Goldstein, transforms a gallery into an experiential music box in his installation Freigedank (Free Thinker) (opening September 16, 2017), which uses a controversial opera by German composer Richard Wagner to illuminate ideas of the taboo and censorship in art. Read on for a conversation between Grachos and the artist.
