Originally organized for the Israeli pavilion at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia in 2012, the Israel Museum’s latest exhibition, “Aircraft Carrier,” explores the dramatic changes in Israeli architecture beginning in 1973, with a particular focus on the influence of the United States.

It takes its name from the famous line by Alexander Haig, US secretary of state under Ronald Reagan, who stated that “Israel is the largest American aircraft carrier in the world that cannot be sunk.”

Five leading Israeli and international artists and architectural photographers – Assaf Evron, Fernando Guerra, Florian Holzherr, Nira Pereg and Jan Tichy – were invited to reflect upon the major architectural phenomena that demonstrate Israel’s historic shift from socialist welfare state to booming free market.

In addition to the architectural photography, Aircraft Carrier includes approximately 30 unique, whimsical merchandise objects, each representing a key event in US-Israel relations, created in collaboration with product designer Tal Erez. The exhibition is curated by guest curators Erez Ella, Milana Gitzin- Adiram, and Dan Handel.

Aircraft Carrier opens November 3 and runs through January 4, 2014. For more info visit
