The relationship of Israel to Islam as reflected in the art of this region. All exhibits portray a clearly-defined identity, along with an open attitude towards others. The perpetual strain and tension reflected in them is interpreted as evidence of both dichotomy and common ground. Introduction and in-depth essay. No itemized listing.


This was one of five exhibitions that aimed to characterize and uncover themes central to contemporary Israeli art. The overriding framework of the series was the Havdalah ceremony. For the other four exhibitions in this series, see #1882, #1883, #1911, and #1953.
