Humor and Satire, the most extensive open air exhibit in Israel to date, kicks off in Alrov Mamilla Avenue beginning on February 19, 2013, with 210 sculptures by 63 artists. Visitors are expected to number at least one million.


Humor and laughter are an inevitable part of our lives from the moment we are born. The sages said that "it is man alone that laughs, he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter." "Inventing laughter" is exactly the challenge which stood before the artists participating in the exhibit, which will be displayed beginning on Purim at Alrov Mamilla Avenue. Israel's best artists were recruited by the exhibit's curator, Tzipi Vital, to create sculptures that express laughter and basically reinvent laughter in the physical form in such a way that will cause viewers to laugh.
