WINDOW SEAT: AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE CURATED ART IN THE NEW “ART & LOUNGE” AT NEWARK LIBERTY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Rotating Exhibition Enhances Lounge For EL AL Premium Class Passengers
NEW YORK – March 12, 2014 – EL AL Israel Airlines’ premium class passengers traveling from Newark Liberty International Airport can now enjoy a one-of-a-kind pre-flight experience at the new "Art & Lounge." Located on the gate level nearby the EL AL check-in counters, the contemporary and serene lounge serves as a setting for rotating exhibitions of contemporary Israeli art and video that enriches the passengers’ visual cultural experience.
Created by The Luxury Lounges Ltd. Company, the lounge’s art installations were curated by Lital Dotan & Eyal Perry, an internationally recognized collaborative team known for their interdisciplinary performative art, integrating elements of video, photography and installation. Adding to the collection, Israeli artists Miriam Cabessa, Oded Hirsch, Shay Kun, and Tom Pnini were also tapped to create unique pieces for the space.
The current curated art installation, known as Window Seat, was specially arranged to be displayed in the lounge. This exhibit gives expression to airport movement and vitality. As an airport terminal is a space of transition and restlessness, the multiple still paintings and video art serve as a metaphorical window to landscapes designed to invite passengers to stay, pause, reflect, before moving on to the next destination.
