June is Pride Month. This year, due to the COVID19 pandemic, national and international events were cut to the minimum or cancelled altogether. As we leave quarantine, art, too, is "coming out of the closet." This is the first outdoor exhibition in these new times, and we are happy to spearhead this much-needed cultural renewal.
ARTiq is proud to feature works by LGBTQ+ artists. Created in diverse media and techniques, these works reflect the unique voice of each artist, while offering a platform for a discourse centered on common aspects shared by the gay community.
Art provides a peek into the culture and society in which we live, examines our "place" within them, and marks new avenues of thought and new paths for action. Outside the box is yet another step toward creating a space for the members of the LGBTQ+ community within the Israeli art scene and the public sphere at large, making the invisible visible.
The Old Jaffa Development Company aims to create an inspiring cultural center that promotes unique art. The outdoor lightbox gallery is a natural, accessible place for the public to meet art. We are honored to display the works and worlds of LGBTQ+ artists.
