Movie Night at Tel Aviv Museum of Art / Blow-Up | Michelangelo Antonioni (1966)

The Museum is delighted to launch a new series of events linking its ongoing exhibitions with movies from Israel and abroad. Once a month, we will screen a movie relating to a prominent exhibition, preceded by an introductory lecture by either a curator of the exhibition or one of its featured artists.
The series program is linked to the exhibition program;
we recommend visiting the exhibition before viewing the movie!

Blowup | dir. Michelangelo Antonioni (1966)
111 minutes, English, with Hebrew subtitles

While wandering through the streets of London, a leading fashion photographer accidentally captures a murder scene on film. This provocative, groundbreaking movie by one of our generation’s most prominent directors, deals with the relations between people and their surrounding reality, and between this reality and art. Does the blurred image in the background of the photograph actually imply a murder? Or is this crime in fact a figment of the photographer’s imagination? The movie is considered one of Antonioni’s best and won various awards, including Cannes Palme d’Or, and was nominated for several Academy Awards and BAFTAs.

We recommend visiting the exhibition Guy Ben Ner: Go Back Where U Came From before viewing the movie
The movie is preceded by a short lecture by artist Guy Ben Ner
