Good Neighbor Grant
Based in New York and Tel Aviv, Artis supports and promotes Israeli contemporary art throughout the world. Artis fosters partnerships and cultural exchange by supporting innovative projects, creating opportunities for art professionals to visit Israel, and expanding audiences for Israeli art online, in print, and through events. Artis offers competitive grants support to Israeli artists who have been invited to present new or recent work at a recognized cultural institution.
Support from the Illumination Fund helped Artis put on four New York public programs this past spring. These thoughtful public programs address important aesthetic and intellectual issues relating to art and culture from Israel. Their programs were in collaboration with art institutions such as the New Museum, The Armory Show on Pier 94, and ArteEast.
During the Winter 2011-2012 season, the Illumination Fund also hosted Brave New World, an exhibit showcasing the photography works of Assaf Evron and Oded Hirsch.
