18 February - THE DALI MUSEUMS:

A voyage into the realm of the Surreal. The works of ‎Dali have changed the meaning of art and its functions in the 20th Century. We ‎will explore his world and attempt to understand his work process and his ‎unusual and sexual-provocative artistic dictionary. We will visit the collections at ‎the Dali Theatre, Dali Castle, Dali House and Dali Jewelry Collection.‎


18 March NEUE GALERIE, New York:

A journey back in time. This museum is a ‎European time capsule, exhibiting early 20th century German and Austrian art ‎and design. Together we shall explore the time frame, attempting to understand ‎the reasoning and need for a new artistic language. We shall meet the patrons ‎and the artists whose work was labeled by Hitler as “degenerate”. The collection ‎contains masterpieces created by the various artistic groups and the iconic ‎portrait of Klimt’s Adele Bloch-Bauer, bought by museum owner, Ronald Lauder ‎for $135 million.


15 April - WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART:

A mirror of America. For the final ‎lecture of our seminar, we will have a close look at the works on exhibit at The ‎Whitney, which focuses on 20th- and 21st-century American Art with works by ‎Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollock, Calder and more….‎

kinneret_zohar_lahav.jpg
Kinneret Zohar-Lahav was born in Bombay to Israeli diplomat parents. Growing up in foreign lands gave her a unique view in understanding the history of art, its present and future as the artists saw it and the context in which a piece was created.
 
Looking at a picture, she enters an adventure. An artwork is a window into another dimension of time and place. This will be the manner and method of her art appreciation course and her invitation to explore the finest collections of art in Europe.
