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 night of arts of many kinds with a meeting between the display spaces of the museum and dozens of artists, creators and cultural figures who use the museum space to inspire and as a starting point for a journey that can go very, very far.
The Israel Museum is long since a venue used for live art and culture but Contact Point awakens the museum to the vibrancy of night life. Visitors are welcome to question their normal definition of a visit to the museum and experience art and creativity at its most dynamic and exciting.
Contact Point 2014, which is set to take place in July, will be the fifth of its kind. People will enjoy taking in the work of dancers, actors, musicians, thinkers, performers, DJs, directors and those with no real definition, who will meet and create a point of contact, thereby creating contact points between them and you, between themselves and the the exhibitions and between with you and the other visitors.
This project is produced by the Jerusalem Season of Culture.
