Encounter at the special project Downtown: Illustrations at the Golda Parking Garage (in Hebrew)
Encounter with the project curator, Tal Lanir
A special project led by the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Jaffa in collaboration with the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Ahuzat HaHof parking garages.
Seven new murals at the Golda Parking Garage—a unique project within the Love Art Make Art 2023 events.
Seven Israeli illustrators—Ovadia Benishu, Elad Elyakim, Batia Kolton, David Polonsky, Niv Tishbi, Amit Trainin, and Anat Warshavsky—were invited to leave the pages of the book and paint on the walls of the parking garage.
Illustration plays a key role in our world, transcending the boundaries of language to communicate ideas, culture, stories, and emotions in a universal and wordless manner. Illustrations captivate our senses and spark our imagination. They tell a visual story that enhances empathy and connection with the characters and their experiences, or with place and surroundings.
The Golda Parking Garage is located at a central place, serving key institutions of the city of Tel Aviv-Jaffa. On one side is the Courthouse (which these days is playing a pivotal role in the country’s future), the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the extensive Beit Ariella Library. On the other side are the Cameri Theater and the Israeli Opera House. Thousands of people go to and fro between these buildings, in and out, sitting, eating, watching, and experiencing. This exhibition aims to link together the space, the people, and the illustrators who shed light on both.
Note: This encounter is in Hebrew only.
Admission is free | The number of participants is limited | Advance reservations are required for all participants.
