The Museum’s exhibition program in 2012 included two international exhibitions, two curated entirely from the Museum’s own collection, and one featuring new work by a local Jewish artist. We were delighted to host French Jewish artist Marc Lopez Bernal, who visited Melbourne for the opening of Aleph Bet and delighted audiences with a series of artist’s talks and demonstrations.

French contemporary artist Marc Lopez Bernal created large-scale, mixed-media artworks, some measuring 2 x 3 metres, forming an exciting and complex landscape of Hebrew letters. This major exhibition was the first showcase of Bernal’s works to be exhibited in Australia.
