Medy Shvide is the Project Director of the new core exhibition at The Museum of the Jewish People. Medy has extensive experience in managing art-related projects, in the public and private sectors. Among various initiatives, she ran the Tel Aviv Art Year, which included the opening of the new wing of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2011, and served as the Director of the Tel Aviv Art Biennial. Prior to this career she served in the IDF for over twenty years, in several development, logistic and human resources positions. Medy has an MBA from Haifa University and is a graduate of Museology Studies in Tel Aviv University.

 

Medy finds the project of the new core exhibition at Beit Hatfutsot an exciting challenge and a great responsibility – “Beit Hatfutsot has been a significant Israeli institution for 35 years, and the change it is going through reflects a fresh approach adopted by its leaders. The new core exhibition will incorporate innovative technological means, and will enable the visitor to take an active part in the visit by way of interactive display stations. Our talented team of consultants and media experts, as well as designers headed by Patrick Gallagher of Gallagher & Associates, and curators headed by Dr. Orit Shaham Gover are the best in their fields and we are making constant progress. I am honored to be making a substantial contribution in making the vision of Beit Hatfutsot a reality”.
