The Miami New Times on Gal Weinstein's works displayed at the Venice Biennale. "Although the Israeli pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale is covered in mold and rust, time seems like its true medium.

New Wild Painters will present an extensive overview of the figurative
painting that blossomed at the beginning of the 1980s in what was at
that time still West Germany. From 30 April, the Groninger Museum

Italian artist David Casini's first exhibition with Plutschow &
Felchlin, "Light, measured. One soon gets used to it," used the
gallery's sunlight-flooded central space to showcase eight small glass
vitrines, within which organic objects met man-made materials in spare,
airy arrangements. Each case is unique, but they all stand on slim,
brass-limbed bases and have bottoms containing a pietra dura
pattern in marble from the Arno River in Tuscany. Inside of one such
case, from the 2013 series "Momento in cui tutto questo ha un spazio" (A
time when all of this has a place), is part of a small, barbed fruit
with two curling tails. It has been sliced, and its flat edge brightly
painted and adhered to a side of the glass, where the fruit looks
potentially still alive...
