Around Town

Izhar Patkin: The Wandering Veil
A long-awaited survey of works by the Israeli-born, New York-based artist Izhar Patkin takes over the Mass MOCA's largest gallery. Grand, labyrinthine yet also surprisingly intimate, the exhibition is rich with personal narrative, political metaphor, and myth, highlighting the many formal innovations Patkin has pioneered over his 30-year career. On view through September 1, 2014.

Israeli Stage
Israeli Stage presents staged readings and full productions of Israeli plays in English, under the artistic direction of Emerson College alumnus, Guy Ben-Aharon. Click here for details of its 2014-2015 season.
