The show Dani Karavan: Artist/Citizen focuses on major public sculptural environments by the late Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan (1930, Tel Aviv – 2021, Tel Aviv), who planned and constructed over 80 architectonic scale sculptural environments around the world and was the laureate of esteem art prizes from Israel and from around the world, including The Israel Prize, Praemium Imperiale by the Japan Art Association and UNESCO Artist for Peace award. (…) Dani Karavan: Artist / Citizen suggests to intertwine the artistic and the civic aspects in the life and work of the internationally renowned Israeli sculptor Dani Karavan into one single praxis, suggesting that this praxis is one of the primary characteristics through which Karavan’s art should be understood and experienced. Among the works presented in the show: Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (Knesset wall), Jerusalem IL (1966), The Negev Monument, Beer Sheva IL (1963–1968), Environment for Peace, Venice Biennale, IT (1976), Way of Human Rights, Nuremberg DE (1989–1993), Way of Peace, Nitzana IL (1996–2000), The Culture Square, Tel Aviv IL (2005–2013).
