The House Project in Abu Tour

Telavivian readers: when people think of Jerusalem, usually the last thing that comes to mind is ‘contemporary art’…right? Well, for the week of  Manofim (and maybe ever after?), this all changes.

Manofim is Jerusalem’s official week-long contemporary art festival, held annually and opening a new art season for the city. Directed by Lee He Shulov and Rinat Edelstein, Manofim began 9 years ago to brilliantly create a united front of the city’s contemporary art venues, independent artists’ groups, culture institutions and independent artists in order to focus on and expose the unique contemporary art scene of Jerusalem.

Manofim Shuttle Lines

The festival’s opening each year coincides with the opening of  new exhibitions at every major gallery of the city. It’s Manofim tradition to have super shuttle lines run throughout the opening night, acting as performance art themselves, offering visitors free transport throughout the gallery map.

This year, the dates of the festival are 9/15-9/22 and the week is jam-packed with art events everyday, all free to the public. These include one-on-one artist appointments, the House Project in Abu Tor ( a neighborhood sitting on the Green Line) where visitors will interact artistically with residents, a “Nachlaot Adventure” day filled with artists talks and interactive activities, an art conference and more.
