Our artist in residence is the winner of Keshet Award for Contemporary Art, 2019
Artist Yael Frank, who is taking part in Artport’s residency program, won the 2019 Keshet Award, including a solo exhibition at the Herzliya Museum of Art in 2020.
The reasoning of the choice: “Yael Frank’s proposal is coherent, original and thorough. It engages in a dialogue with the unique museum architecture, offers a new approach to language-object relations and responds to the political and cultural state of our time. Frank creates amusing metaphors and situations that overwhelm existential complexity. Her work has energy, charisma and humor. ”
The award was founded by the Bar-Gil Avidan family and aims to expand and deepen support for the Israeli art field.
