Inferno: Video Installation

Submitted July 17 – October 19, 2014 Included with Museum admission; $12 Adult, $10 Senior, $10 Student (12+), $5 Youth (5-11) A powerful new cinematic offering from renowned Israeli artist Yael Bartana, Inferno centers on a replica of Solomon’s Temple currently being constructed by a Neo-Pentecostal Church in São Paulo, Brazil. In just 18 minutes Inferno implodes traditional concepts of place, time and belief. Bartana combines real events with a “pre-imagining” that is sure to inspire a flood of questions and spark debate around topics such as creation, ritual, memorialization and commercialization. With its rich pageantry, stylized costuming and references to epic Hollywood blockbusters, Inferno has been referred to as a “visual feast.” The Maltz Museum’s video installation is the film’s second showing in the U.S. and its Midwest premiere.

Inferno: Video Installation

Submitted July 17 – October 19, 2014 Included with Museum admission; $12 Adult, $10 Senior, $10 Student (12+), $5 Youth (5-11) A powerful new cinematic offering from renowned Israeli artist Yael Bartana, Inferno centers on a replica of Solomon’s Temple currently being constructed by a Neo-Pentecostal Church in São Paulo, Brazil. In just 18 minutes Inferno implodes traditional concepts of place, time and belief. Bartana combines real events with a “pre-imagining” that is sure to inspire a flood of questions and spark debate around topics such as creation, ritual, memorialization and commercialization. With its rich pageantry, stylized costuming and references to epic Hollywood blockbusters, Inferno has been referred to as a “visual feast.” The Maltz Museum’s video installation is the film’s second showing in the U.S. and its Midwest premiere. Support for Inferno is generously provided by Toby Devan Lewis, Dealer Tire, Israel Art Connection and Federation and Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. Saturday, August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM.
