The summer of 2013 will see two new exhibitions at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem – ‘Threads’ is a contemporary fashion exhibition inspired by the women of Jerusalem, whilst ‘Suspicious Objects’ features industrial design, objects inspired by the city of Jerusalem and showcased in the unique setting of this museum in the Old City. Both exhibitions run from May 24, 2013.
‘Threads’ sees the fashion-wear of women noteworthy from throughout the history of Jerusalem re-clothed as if they were alive today. Ten of Israel’s leading fashion designers set out to update the outfits of ten noteworthy figures from the city’s history including the likes of Queen of Sheba, Shlmozion HaMalcha, Empress Helena, and Hemda Ben Yehuda.
‘Suspicious Objects’ explores Jerusalem as both a physical place and a dream, showcasing the works of industrial designers inspired by Jerusalem. The unique collection of objects is both fun and thought-provoking and is being showcased in the new exhibition hall at the Tower of David which overlooks the Old City.
The Tower of David is one of Jerusalem’s most interesting museums.
