The Collector – Meeting with Philippe Cohen
Thursday, January 16 at 8 pm
Formerly a dentist and currently an art advisor, Philippe Cohen (*1958, Meknes, Morocco; lives in Herzliya Pituach) started to collect 30 years ago and his collection – which has a focus on Appropriation, Relational Aesthetics and Post-Conceptual Art – includes artworks by artists from his own generation, such as Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe and Douglas Gordon, artists from previous generations, such as Louise Lawler, Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, Allan McCollum and Haim Steinbach, and younger artists such as Claire Fontaine, Mircea Cantor, Tino Sehgal, Loris Gréaud, Laurent Montaron and Jonathan Monk. During his presentation, Cohen – who moved to Israel from Paris five years ago – will share stories and anecdotes about his encounters and friendships with artists and how the field of art has changed since he started collecting. “The collector – meeting with Philippe Cohen” is part of the public program of “Jonathan Monk: Exhibit Model Six – The Tel Aviv Version”; meetings with other figures in the field of art (the artist, the editors, and the curator) as well as tours by Nicola Trezzi, curator of the exhibition, will follow.
The talk will be held in English.
Entrance: 10 NIS
