Peggy Guggenheim was a colourful character who was not only ahead of her time but who helped to define it, she was an heiress who became a central figure in the modern art movement, as she moved though the cultural upheaval of the 20th century. She collected not only art, but artists… While fighting through personal tragedy she maintained her vision to to build one of the most important collections of modern art…

“A name-dropper’s Nirvana… Peggy Guggenheim knew everyone In 20th-centruy art –many of them intimately.” – The Hollywood Reporter

JERUSALEM ON A PLATE

Evening screening
Drinks reception: 6:30pm
Screening: 7:00pm

Internationally renowned chef Yotam Ottolenghi returns to his hometown Jerusalem to rediscover its rich and diverse food culture. He meets and cooks with both Arabs and Jews in restaurants and at home who draw on hundreds of years of tradition to create the dishes that define the city, and explores the flavors and recipes that have influenced his palate. From the humble street foods such as hummus and falafel that have been feeding the throngs of visiting pilgrims for centuries to the cutting edge of Jerusalem cuisine, Yotam uncovers the essence of what makes the food of Jerusalem so great and loved by Jews and non-Jews alike.

Exodus

We are delighted to partner with the Asia Society Hong Kong Center and The Hong Kong Holocaust & Tolerance Centre in presenting an evening with Dov Landau in the dialogue with Mr. Ronnie C. Chan, Co-Chair of the Asia Society.

In the follow up to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we are happy to announce a complimentary afternoon screening of the classic film Exodus (1960), featuring Paul Newman and Eva Marie Saint. The story, based on the 1958 best-selling novel by Leon Uris, focuses on the establishment of the State of Israel after World War II. It follows Ari Ben Canaan, an Israeli resistance leader, as he tries to help a group of 600 Jewish immigrants escape British-blocked Cypress for Palestine. The film follows the events surrounding the Jewish refugee ship Exodus in Cyprus in 1947 as well as the developments in Palestine during the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948.

Mr. Landau is the real life figure behind the character of the same name in film “Exodus”
