It’s never easy getting a new cultural venue off the ground, especially not in this country where state support for the arts tends towards the minuscule end of the national budget scale.

The third Jerusalem Biennale for Contemporary Jewish Art, to give it its full titular due, will showcase the work of close to 200 artists, Israeli and foreign alike, in dozens of exhibitions and installations at eight venues around the city. Biennale shows regularly feed off some central theme, which inform all the works on display. This time round the topical baseline is the concept of watershed.
