With many travelers planning their visit to the 57th annual Venice Art Biennale this summer, a prominent Israeli-born artist has announced she will be exhibiting this year for the first time ever.

In partnership with The Farkash Gallery, Ariela Wertheimer will be making her debut at Venice Art Biennale, which begins May 13th. While Ariela has previously displayed her pieces at various showings, this will be the artist’s first time showcasing her work at the world-renowned art exhibition in Venice.

Ariela will present her awe-inspiring “Jaffa Venice Light Boxes,” curated by Aaron Farkash of The Farkash Gallery in Tel Aviv. The light boxes are designed through the combination of metal, lighting, photographs, painting and print on plexiglass. This innovative use of artistic elements creates a series of works and portraits of spectacularly depicted people in light boxes.

Along with her other works, these light boxes are “optic experiences of a visual system, giving the onlooker a humane and personal experience which doesn’t allow any room for indifference,” said Ariela Wertheimer.

Ariela’s solo exhibition will be located at the Palazzo Mora in the “Personal Structures” area and will be hosted by the European Cultural Center. Visitors will be able to experience Ariela’s work for the entirety of the 2017 Biennale, from May 13, 2017 through November 26, 2017.

Open to the public from Saturday May 13th to Sunday November 26th 2017, at the Giardini and the Arsenale, the 57th International Biennale Art Exhibition, titled VIVA ARTE VIVA, will be curated by Christine Macel and organized by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta. Tickets begin at $23 and can be purchased here.
