Tel Aviv


The cooperation between AIR_Frankfurt and ARTPORT Tel Aviv started 2019.


Artport Tel Aviv was founded in 2011 aiming to be a home for emerging artists and a significant milestone in their artistic career. Artport is a nonprofit organization promoting Israeli contemporary visual art, its core being a residency program for Israeli and international artists. Through additional activities such as conferences, lectures, exhibitions, professional workshops for artists and an annual art book fair, Artport serves the general public and the local art scene, promoting relations between art and society. ARTPORT provides close curatorial support, studio visits by leading local and international curators and professionals, workshops, lectures and production support. The International artists join the residency activities while working on their own project or research. The artists in the residency are working side-by-side and are expected to join a weekly meeting as well as art tours around the country. All International residents are asked to do local studio visits and have at least one event that is open to the public (exhibition/ artist talk/ workshop etc).

The exchange is kindly supported by the foundation Polytechnische Gesellschaft with the aim to strengthen the partnership between the cities of Frankfurt and Tel Aviv.
