Nicola Trezzi, an artist, curator and the U.S. editor of Flash Art, has been tapped to head the MFA program at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. We last caught up with Mr. Trezzi in his role as a member of the Lucie Fontaine collective, which took over Marianne Boesky Gallery’s Upper East Side townhouse for a summer show in 2012.

Mr. Trezzi will take over the program from Dr. Zagury-Orly, who has run the MFA program since 2010. According to Bezalel’s PR director, Mr. Trezzi will relocate from New York to Tel Aviv to begin his post in October 2014.
