About Us

Artport Tel Aviv was founded in 2011 aiming to be a home for emerging artists and a significant milestone in their artistic career.

Artport is a nonprofit organization promoting Israeli contemporary visual art, its core being a residency program for Israeli and international artists. Through additional activities such as conferences, lectures, exhibitions, professional workshops for artists and an annual art book fair, Artport serves the general public and the local art scene, promoting relations between art and society.

Artport was founded by Mr. Jason Arison, Chairman of The Ted Arison Family Foundation, continuing the Arison family’s vast activity supporting and initiating leading projects of arts and culture in Israel and the United States. Artport is part of The Center for Young Art, initiated by Jason out of his passion for the arts and his wish to support emerging artists.
