About Artport

Founded in 2011, Artport Tel Aviv is a leading contemporary art center and home to Israel’s most prestigious residency program. Based on the belief that art and artists are a crucial part of our society , Artport is a home for artists at pivotal stages of their professional development, supporting and enabling the creation of new art.
Artport’s core is the 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, building relationships between art and society.
The year-long residency program for Israeli artists is open to visual artists in different stages of their career and selection is made through an annual open call and jury review. The international residency program is by invitation or through open calls published by our partner residency programs around the world.
Artport was founded by Jason Arison, Chairman of The Ted Arison Family Foundation, continuing the Arison family’s vast activities supporting and initiating important arts and culture projects in Israel and the United States.
