Pre/Post Events

TEDxTelAviv, April 2010, offered participants several pre and post conference events.

As part of the pre-conference events, TEDx TLV guests were invited for a private tour at the newly opened Design Museum Holon constructed by the Architect and designer Ron Arad.

The Design Museum Holon is the first museum in Israel dedicated to design and it marks as a major milestone for Israel’s design scene.

The building itself – all 3,700 square meters of it- is the first exhibit the museum visitor encounters. The building’s sinuous ribbon facade of Corten weathering steel is alive, forming a blend of textural, spatial and optical experiences that seamlessly meld the principles of sculpture, architecture, design and art for the enjoyment of the public.

Led by guest curator Barbara J. Bloemink, and curators Julie Lasky, Aric Chen and Garth Walker, the inaugural exhibition “state of things” features more than 100 objects that collectively reflect issues concerning the practice, consumption and cultural impact of contemporary international design.
