20 artists, chosen from around the world, are coming to live in Jerusalem for two weeks of art around the clock. They will join 21 local artists to create works in the public space, and for meetings, workshops, and one big wandering exhibition that will conclude the project and display the products of the stay.
ArtBnB is a unique residential festival inviting 20 artists from around the world to live and create art in one of three cultural centers in the heart of Jerusalem – HaMiffal, Beita, and the Muslala Terrace in the Clal Building. They will be joined by 21 Israeli artists, who will be working alongside them, accompanying and collaborating with them.
The work process of the artists, carried out both inside and in the public space around the centers, will be open to public view. The festival also offers a program that includes master classes, workshops, and interactive events. Some of the cultural centers will allocate space for accommodation as well as work infrastructures, and thus will become temporary guest homes for the artists from abroad.
The selected artists work in a variety of media: painting, sculpture, installation, cinema, sound, theatre, performance, photography, architecture, conceptual art, land art, interventions in the public space, and so on. The artists were chosen for the project by an artistic committee that included the directors of the host cultural centers, and the project managers.
