Monumental Installation by artist Ron Arad at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem
The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and the Jerusalem Season of Culture are presenting Ron Arad’s monumental installation 720°—an immersive experience that presents 360-degree screenings of films and video art—in the heart of the Museum’s Isamu Noguchi-designed Billy Rose Art Garden. Composed of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from a height of 26 feet (8 meters) to form a perfect circle,720° will allow visitors to experience projections both inside the installation’s interior and also from vantage points across the Museum’s 20-acre campus. 720° will be presented from August 16 through September 5, and will feature a nightly scheduled program of video projections by leading multi-media artists, together with surprise, one-time-only performances by Israeli performers and performance artists.
