Fresh Paint Contemporary Art Fair In Tel Aviv
This coming May (21-25), Fresh Paint will hold its first design fair - Fresh Design, alongside the art fair - Fresh Paint 6. In a separate venue, which will share the location and activities of the art fair, Fresh Design will present selected projects by Israeli designers, galleries, leading brands and design shops. New and creative talents will also be invited to participate in the fair, as part of the Design Greenhouse, which will present items by promising designers at the early stages of their careers. The fair will be held in collaboration with leading design schools and institutions, headed by Design Museum Holon, and will offer the public an up-to-date view of the state of contemporary design in Israel.

Fresh Paint contemporary art fair is Israel's premier annual art event, featuring the nation's leading contemporary art galleries, presenting international and local programs of artists. While maintaining a high level of artistic quality, the fair includes young, promising galleries, and the unique Greenhouse - showcasing the works of 50 select, independent, emerging Israeli artists. Further Fresh Paint offerings are the Most Promising Artist award winner show, presented by the Igal Ahouvi art collection, the Sotheby’s “Under the Hammer” noteworthy independent artist’s work, a selection of special projects and commissioned works, the fair’s community projects and fund-raising activities, and the Fresh Paint Salon, supported by Outset - an educational program of lectures, talks and encounters.
