Artists protesting against the early closure of the show “Women Make History, Feminism in the Age of Transnationalism” at the Haifa Museum (Israel) UPDATE

May 17, 2020

Public Statement

May 17.2020

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that thanks to our letters, our protests on social media and in the press (radio as well), the Haifa Museum of Art reconsidered its decision to abruptly close this important international feminist show on May 18, so the exhibition is not closing tomorrow! We were informed informally today that it will remain open to the public as it was originally scheduled until June 20, 2020.

Since the exhibition was closed for over two months due to the Corona Quarantine, we will continue to demonstrate tomorrow in front of the Museum, asking for a prolongation from the museum administration, as we believe that it should be actually extended at least until August 26, 2020.

Today an article was published in the daily newspaper in Haifa about our protests, we expect to receive soon an official letter from the Museum.

Thanks, everyone for the international and local support!

We shall keep you informed of future developments!
