On May 28, an exhibition will be opened at the minus 1 floor of the Lighthouse Hotel in collaboration with the “Fresh Paint” art fair.

The Lighthouse space is a large one (just over 1000 meters, it is the largest exhibition outside the fair itself), which is a designated space for events, a spa and a fitness centre for hotel guests, is divided into one central space and a number of spaces surrounding it all dedicated to the exhibition. The space is currently under renovation near the exhibition so that the exhibition itself is also an informal launch to the space and is a kind of “sneak peek” to the new floor of the hotel.
The entire exhibition is for sale, and part of the proceeds will be transferred to the Sheba Medical Centre’s oncology department. Read more.
