From the sea and clouds to the here and now is a group exhibition that examines how contemporary artists with deep connections to Tel Aviv take as their subject the form, myth, message and image of that city’s iconic area of Modernist structures: The White City, a collection of over 4,000 buildings built from the 1930s on in a unique form of Bauhaus or International Style. The exhibition brings together a wide-range of artistic viewpoints on a city said to have been born “from seafoam and clouds,” and it springs from these artists’ research on various aspects of the White City’s unique legacy.

Many Cities, One Providence is an exhibition series offering Providence audiences idiosyncratic glimpses of innovative artists and thinkers working in cities near and far. The series stems from PC–G’s interest in cultivating relationships with artists, scholars and arts communities from around the world in order to draw connections between the city of Providence and other urban contexts.

Curated by Jamilee Lacy, Director and Chief Curator of PC–G with curatorial assistant Revital Michali. Support provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Artis and Department of Art & Art History at Providence College.


David Adika, Ronny Carny, Yael Efrati, Hilla Toony Navok, and Shay Zilberman.
