Learn about Israeli contemporary art through Artisby Anna Kopito | 08.04.15
Artis is one of our favorite non-profit organizations – with the goal of supporting artists from Israel, and those who identify as Israeli. They do this by presenting, facilitating and advocating Israeli art and artists – regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religion. We love their unique approach to supporting Israeli artists, and their championing of free speech, diversity and innovation. On their website you can find incredible video profiles on selected artists such as Zoya Cherkassky, Shai Azoulay, Oded Hirsch and Keren Cytter, as well as an “artist index” detailing the many outstanding Israeli artists they have worked with.
Artis is a great way to learn everything you need to know about the local art scene.
Artis is based in New York, with also an office, next to us, at Mindspace, Tel Aviv.
