Contact Point 2015

Imagine wandering through the amazing art galleries of the Israel Museum except in a different kind of way, at night. Contact Point (Nekudat Maga) is a vibrant artistic nighttime experience where different kinds of arts create a synergy between the display spaces of the museum and dozens of artists. Creators and cultural figures who use the museum space inspire those around them in the starting point of a journey.

The Israel Museum is long since a venue used for live art and culture but Contact Point awakens the museum to a vibrancy night life. Visitors are sure to question their regular definition of a visit to the museum after they experience art and creativity at its most dynamic.

Last year’s Contact Point 2014

Here are details about the last Contact Point. Details about Contact Point 2015 will be added as they become available.

This was the fifth Contact Point. From 8:00 pm to 2:00 am people are invited to come and experience the mix of arts around the museum galleries and outside in the garden. Dancers, actors, musicians, thinkers, performers, DJs, directors and those of no clear definition create a point of contact, between you, themselves, the museum and other guests.

There are dozens of creations to see and even to participate in. For example:

Watch a dance troop crawl around the museum floor, conducted by Sharon Zuckerman Viser.

Miki Ohana will sew spontaneous drawings in black thread on a huge cloth spread across the museum floor.

You’ll be invited to climb the night-lit Big Bambu installation in the Art Garden. Yaniv Shentzer will be standing below producing a sound track based on pre-recorded sounds and live music.

Also in the Art Garden (among others), watch a huge white elephant being inflated.

Singer and actress Anya Bukshtein will perform in a concert about journeys in the Journeys exhibition.

Paul the robot will be drawing portraits.

Gal Barzilay will be creating masks for the parade later on.

Musicians will be playing their instruments lying on their backs.

An improve performance will take place with audience participation.

And, of course, the well-known outdoor WiFi earphone party will take place again. Get ready for 1,500 earphones, two DJs alongside the Anish Kapoor sculpture under a late-night Jerusalem sky. All that’s left is for you to switch between DJ Amir Egozi and DJ Giora Yisrael and dance to your heart’s content late into the night.
