Images Don't Lie - Sunday, December 18, 2016 , 6 pm , Sourasky Central Library, Tel Aviv University
Opening of an exhibition that explores scientific images from the late Middle Ages to the Early Modern Period, focusing on their historical meaning, function, and on their virtual contemporary artistic reconstruction.
Matteo Valleriani, visiting professor from the Max Planck Institute of the History of Science in Berlin, conceived the exhibition in conclusion of a seminar he taught on scientific images at the Cohn Institute.
Liron Ben Arzi, video artist, created Images in Time, using these images, providing them with a contemporary interpretation that will be screened for the first time at the opening event.
Chen Elimelech, Noga Shlomi, Yechiel Gilboa and Joseph Lehmann, Zvi Hasnes Beninson, Eilam Wolman and Belinda Kain - six research students have prepared posters and will describe their work in short presentations (in English).
Yifat-Sara Pearl from the Faculty of Arts (who also took part in the seminar) curated the exhibition.
