About Us Tabs

ARTPORT TELAVIV is the new art arena of The Center for Young Art, a nonprofit organization founded by Mr. Jason Arison, Chairman of The Ted Arison Family Foundation.

The Arison family has been a major supporter of the arts for many years, both in Israel and in the United States. Jason initiated and founded The Center for Young Art out of his passion for the arts and his wish to support emerging artists. The Center for Young Art and ARTPORT TEALVIV is one of 5 vision ventures of The Ted Arison Family Foundation. To read more about the Ted Arison Family Foundation, visit us at www.arison. co.il.

Jason Arison wishes ARTPORT TELAVIV to be a home for emerging artists, a place that will be reflected upon as the turning point in the lives of talented artists, and to serve as a platform for an alternative artistic dialogue, between the local contemporary art scene, international organizations and independent artists worldwide. As such, ARTPORT TELAVIV will also benefit the general public, spreading artistic awareness and knowledge locally and internationally, experiencing trends and insights from the contemporary art world.

The Center for young Art will promote Israeli contemporary visual art worldwide and bring it closer to the general public through ARTPORT TELAVIV, a home for emerging artists.
ARTPORT TELAVIV will act as a dynamic and challenging environment for the creation and exhibition of art work, and will initiate communal educational programs and collaborations with local and international organizations.

1. To lead an admission format that is transparent and based on equality, thus providing a real chance for any artist to apply and become a candidate for the ARTPORT TELAVIV residency program.

2. To offer emerging artists a place to create both independently and as part of a diverse group of artists, from different disciplines, backgrounds and nationalities.

3. To offer artists the opportunity to focus on their professional artistic growth.

4. To promote collaboration with leading organizations, locally and internationally, enabling joint learning, a mutual working experience and familiarization with the art world.  

5. To experientially engage the community in artistic educational activity, bringing the public closer to the latest trends of contemporary art, locally and internationally.

Each year six Israeli artist are selected to participate in our 12-months-long program through an open call. This close knitted group sustains their own studio practice while participating in a weekly meeting, workshops and art tours. The residents share a little kitchen and a large outdoor space we are many meetings, meals and conversations take place.


International artists (8-10 a year) are accepted by invitation for shorter periods of 1-3 months. We provide travel, accommodation, a studio, a monthly stipend as well as close curatorial support, studio visits by leading local and international curators and professionals, workshops, lectures, production support and possibly small production funds.  The International artists join the residency activities while working on their own project or research.

The artists in the residency are working side-by-side and are expected to join a weekly meeting as well as art tours around the country. All International residents are asked to do local studio visits and have at least one event that is open to the public (exhibition/ artist talk/ workshop etc).
