The 2nd Jerusalem Biennale was held in Fall 2015 around the theme of Present Work. Biennale 2015 further emphasized the idea of combining the contemporary with the Jewish and challenged curators and artists to integrate relevant issues from current Jewish discourse in their exhibitions and artworks.
Nearly 200 participating artists, half of them from outside of Israel and among them leading artists like Sigalit Landau, Motti Mizrachi, Pablo Lobato, Andi Arnovitz and Maya Zack.
7 venues around Jerusalem's center, including the iconic Tower of David Museum and the prestigious Van Leer Research institution, that hosted 10 core exhibitions. 3 more venues hosted collateral events.
Unprecedented media coverage including an item in the New York Times and five articles in the Jerusalem Post.
More than 10,000 independent visitors and dozens of organized groups.
26 partner institutes and organizations and hundreds of individuals closely involved with the production.
The Biennale was invited to exhibit a selection of the works from Biennale2015 as part of the JFN annual conference in San Diego in April 2016.
