Artis is an independent nonprofit organization that supports visual artists from Israel.


We strive to cultivate a global network of resources that advance opportunities for contemporary artists.


Artis was founded in 2004 during Armory Arts Week in New York as a series of events, exhibitions and publications focused on art and artists from Israel. Artis was established with the aims of increasing international visibility for both emerging and established contemporary artists from Israel, and creating opportunities for curatorial and artistic exchange with the international art world.
