Artis Curatorial Research Trip Alumni

Since 2007, Artis has hosted nearly 100 leading international museum directors, curators, writers and art professionals on our signature weeklong cultural research trips to Israel. This semi-annual program provides participants with an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the Israeli art community, explore historical and sociopolitical developments, delve into the contemporary context in which artistic production is taking place, and ultimately create a platform for projects and initiatives to emerge. Until recently, participation in our trips was by invitation only, but due to high demand and interest from the professional art world, Artis now accepts applications.
