REDRAWING DUBLIN in Tel Aviv

04.01.12

An exhibition based on the book REDRAWING DUBLIN by Paul Kearns and Motti Ruimy opens in ZeZeZe Gallery in Tel Aviv, Isreal on Thursday 5 January. The exhibition is supported by Culture Ireland and the Port of Tel Aviv and will be launched by Conor Long, Deputy Head of Mission Irish Embassy Israel. It will run until 21 January.

REDRAWING DUBLIN was published in December 2010. The book has since been hailed as significantly contributing to the visualisation and conceptualisation of urbanism in general and Dublin in particular “…a grounded and questioning work by an architect and an urban planner, that transforms the same graphic medium into a significant and thoughtful contribution to the debate about the city…” – Niall Mc Cullough review in Architecture Ireland 2010.

The Exhibition tells the year long story of the innovative and democratising work of the authors of REDRAWING DUBLIN, from their book launch to projects presented with the Irish Architecture Foundation such as an on-street poster campaign, an Urban Party held in Smithfield, Blooming Attitude and METROWALK walking tours of Dublin city and the Dead City – a light performance as part of Open House Dublin. This is the story of one book, two authors – one Irish one Israeli and their 12 months experience of “Action Urbanism”.

REDRAWING DUBLIN, ZeZeZe and the Port of Tel Aviv also hosts “TALKING TEL AVIV – Urban Party” on Monday 16 of January at Hangar 22, when 20 socially prominent
and politically diverse voices of Israeli society will voice their opinion on the future of Tel Aviv. The format is simple and engaging. Each speaker is requested to speak for just 3 minutes. Thus over one hour and in rapid succession each of the 20 invited speakers articulate their vision for the future of the Tel Aviv. Agreed speakers include Yitzak Herzog MK, Nathan Horowitz MK, Naomi Angel, Sharon Rothbard, Gideon Levey, Esther Zanberg, Alon Bin Nunn, Emanan Abu Suliman, Emilie Sylverman, Liat Izcov, Marc Ostan and many more.
