An Open Gallery on Buildings Throughout the City

Open Areas Exhibition: Open Gallery on Buildings, Global City Administration and Baram Company initiative

Curator: Sagi Refael

Participants: Aviv Nave, Yiftach Baleski, Michal Kol-Ohana, Uri Gershoni, Adar Aviam, Gil Heller, Hinda Weiss, Tal Yerushalmi, Nelly Agasi, Ohad Matalon

The open area exhibition "Open Gallery on Buildings" is a first of its kind cooperation initiated by Baram Company in cooperation with Global City Administration of Tel Aviv Jaffa Municipality, in marking of the Tel Aviv Art Year.
Nine public building fronts have been chosen to put up artworks of young Israeli artists, which have been magnified to monumental proportions. The artists chosen to participate are some of the prominent, original and important artists of their young generation in fields of art like painting, photography and video.

Baram Group, the initiator and producer of the project, is in charge of the printing, installing and maintaining the artoworks as part of their promotion of contemporary Israeli art.
The goal of the project is to bring the general public closer, including those who don't usually visit the different museums and galleries, to contemporary art by Israeli artists. In addition, since every piece was chosen for a specific building, it shines each one in a different light which brings out its presence in the public sphere.

Part of the slaes revenues will be donated to activities for young artists of Tel Aviv Jaffa.
During the exposure of the buildings' images, an exhibition of the original artworks will open in Ferrate Gallery

Photography Exhibition by Hagai Ben-Yehuda, Raanana City Hall Lobby

"Hagai Ben Yehuda perpetuates in his camera the "architecture language" of the modern building here in Israel. In a series of his photographs Israeli characteristics can be noticed: clean lines, geometric shapes, rhythm and repetition of elements, natural and artificial lighting games; all which make his work into geometric-abstract artwork, creations which are characterized by magical esthetic connections reminiscing of kaleidoscope mirrors".

In the exhibitions 13 images of buildings in Tel Aviv are presented.
Curator: Orna Phichman

The exhibition opens on March 15, attended by Raanana mayor Mr. Nahum Hofri and will be open until May 22.

'No Wonder' - Exhibition at Jaffa Port

No Wonder - Jaffa Port

Curators: Karni Barzilay & Sharon Newfeld

The exhibition No Wonder opens on the opening night of Tel Aviv Art Weekend events and designates a celebration. We have chosen to integrate festive elements in this exhibition. However, those elements bear symbolic and imaginary connotations on one hand yet have a design, urban affinity on the other. We found that all these parameters coexist in Lewis Carroll's iconic story "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", which inspired the title of the exhibition, but with a twist. This concept constitutes an inexhaustible source of ideas, from which we advised the participating artists to develop their own. Those motifs include fairy tail; role play; stereotypes; symbols; time; fantasy; hallucinations; adventure; journey in time; maturity, to name a few. All participants are young artists and the purpose behind this gathering is to present an intuitive, ideological variety that emerged during the curatorial process and the simultaneous engagement of the artists with the exhibition space.

Opening: 21.3.2012 18:00

Participating artists:
Nitzan Mintz
Hila Amram
Nir Segal
Miri Chais
Tamar Roded

International Women's Month

March 8 marks the International Women's Day in the world and in Israel and is dedicated to discourses of women's achievements in economics, politics and society. Women's Day history began on March 8, 1857, the day in which hundreds of textile factory women workers decided they have had enough of the low wage and working conditions, and went on strike. Although the demonstration was dismantled by police forces, the impression those brave women left was so strong and surprising, that the date was institutionalized and marked ever since around the world.

 

Tel Aviv Jaffa is also marking International Women's Month with a variety of organized events, happening all through the month of March (1-26.3.12)

What is the 'MAZEH' Art Project? Fresh Art @ 9 Mazeh: The Tel- Aviv-Jafo Municipality Hub for Young-Adults

MAZEH Art Project takes its name from the street where it's located which in Hebrew sounds like: "what is this"? A question which resonates in all actions created during this project.  

MAZEH is art work that focuses on the process rather than the end result, thus it will change functions and wear different faces while constantly providing a space to think, act and create; a meeting point for events, lectures and activities that provide inspiration and serve as tools for expression for the benefit of the young creative community in which the MAZEH lives.
 
MAZEH Bayit?, 1-21.3.2012, 9 MAZEH:
The project "Mazeh Bayit"? (what is a house?) opening March 1st will mark MAZEH's inauguration. For three weeks the artists will be living in the space and transforming it into their home. While living at MAZEH artists will have the opportunity to learn the space, establish with it a long term intimate relationship,  invite colleagues, converse with people from the art and culture scene, think together about MAZEH, the future, the place, of home. During this month the artists will create series of Sculptures and Performances which will be presented in the closing weekend.  
 
The project is managed by Ira Shalit and Ruth Patir, two young artists, BFA graduates of the Bezalel Academy for Arts and Design.
A-Void: Twin Cities
Yehuda Hayamit St. welcomes an art event among spaces and walls
 
This is the third event of the "On the Fence" series. The art will be displayed on the walls of houses on the street and will include paintings, photography, video art, texts, and performance-art. Anyone can contribute with music, sound and dance, all culminating into a street party.
 
A-Void: Twin Cities is an invitation to create clean communication, free and dismantled of branding and sponsors in an urban space exempt from authority and permits.
A street party free of hostile takeovers, winners, and losers. 
An art event beckoning people to participate and actively heal the communal space and texture in which we dwell.
 
What will not be in the event: there will be no fireworks, soaring stages, and billboards defining art. No curators, sponsors, prizes, and financial incentives. There will be a belly dancer.  Because, cities rise from a void.  
 
The event is self-funded by the participating artists.
Donations, gifts and other forms of appreciation are welcomed.  
painting: Maya Gelfman.

Museums Forum 2012

Tel Aviv-Yafo is a metropolitan area that serves as Israel's financial, cultural, media and commercial center.

An initiative was undertaken in Art Year aimed at further anchoring Greater Tel Aviv's standing as a cultural metropolitan area.  A group of curators and directors from art museums throughout the Tel Aviv-Yafo area were invited to a meeting in June 2011, where they received information about Art Year and discussed the idea of creating a forum of museums in honor of it.
The proposed collaborations were embraced by the members of the forum, who agreed that Art Year would facilitate the examination and formation of inter-museum synergy designed to promote Israeli art locally and in the global arena.  They are scheduled to meet again at a conference held at the beginning of Art Year, where they will explore the potential as well as the process needed in order to forge effective collaborations between museums in terms of marketing, content, and tours.  The challenge of examining new, collaborative ways of thinking will ultimately produce benefits that can be shared by all – directors, curators, and visitors alike.
