Artis and LAXART presented a talk by Tel Aviv-based curator and critic Joshua Simon, the Director and Chief Curator of MoBY – Museums of Bat Yam. Following the ideas presented in his new book, Neomaterialism, Simon explored the legacy of the dematerialization of currencies and art practices in the 1960s and 1970s, tracing the evolution of a new economy in which symbols behave like materials.
