Back to Artport

Alumni Exhibition Celebrating Artport’s New Building

After five years based on Ben Zvi Road in South Tel Aviv, and after nearly two years in search of a new venue, Artport’s residency program is reopening its doors in a new building on 8 Ha’amal St., Tel Aviv.

Marking the building’s inauguration, the program will host the exhibition “Back to Artport”, showcasing works by its Israeli alumni. The exhibition will span two floors, including the gallery and some of the studios.

The residency program will continue under the same format, with six Israeli artists in residence for a year, and international artists and curators invited for shorter periods. Artport Gallery will reopen with a wide range of activities including exhibitions, the annual art book fair, artist talks, professional workshops, reading groups and more.

Artport Contemporary Art Center was founded in 2011 by Jason Arison and is fully funded by the Ted Arison Family Foundation. Artport aims to be a home and a significant milestone for artists in different stages of their career, supporting and enabling the creation of new art.

Public Movment

Debriefing Session II is based on a series of one-on-one exchanges about the performative relationship between the state and its cultural institutions. During the performance, which takes the format of a private meeting,
the Agent recounts their research about modern art made in Palestine before 1948.

Public Movement presents the debriefingformat as a methodology for the transmission of information, turning research into action. At the root of the debriefing is the possibility that to activate art in the political field, an agent may be a double agent.
