The 2019 illustration week is upon us and with it a large and festive LaCulture exhibition in collaboration with A5 Magazine and Gelada Studio, in the theme of “Object/Spirit”.
This exhibition will feature 130 local, young and promising artists, and 180 art pieces that will be sold at affordable prices.
As a part of our sustainable agenda, LaCulture collaborates with local artists, designers and art initiatives that will be in attendance at the exhibition and will create joint projects in honour of Illustration Week 2019:
1. The renowned A5 magazine will release for the first time an edition dedicated solely to illustration in a new and intriguing format featuring some of the artists chosen to participate in the exhibition. The magazine will be launched and sold in the A5 magazine pop-up shop, to be set up among the gallery walls.
2. Gelada Tours is an illustration and travel design studio. They will collaborate with textile designer Lee Korn, tattoo artist Tamar Bar, illustrator Tom Melnick and designer Itay Blaish. They will launch a handkerchief collection and a new limited edition Gelada shirt. All this will happen in a very special souvenir pop-up shop selling t-shirts and illustration prints created in collaboration with some of Israel’s best illustrators and designers.
3. The potter Rotem Faifer and the artist Jonathan Milo Levitas created an artistic project in white clay and black ink illustration consisting of abstract shapes and a collection of hands-made plates.
LaCulture will present a contemporary art exhibition at prices up to NIS 500, and expose younger and older artists in one exhibition, to make local art accessible to its community and all Israeli art consumers. The exhibition will feature original artwork in a variety of illustration techniques such as: silk screen printing, woodcut, linocut, Aquatinta, monotype, risograph, digital, etc., in limited editions or originals.
The exhibition will take place at Gallery 9, the LaCulture Homebase Gallery, which functions as part of a cultural centre owned by municipality of Tel Aviv.
The theme of this year’s illustration week exhibition is the Object / Spirit:
Objects are material things that can be seen and touched, they play significant roles in our lives in many aspects, but most importantly, without them, we are naked, in a literal way but also in a spiritual way. Every object in our life creates some sort of connection to places, people, times, beliefs, ideas, other realms and so on.
The LaCulture Art / Spirit Exhibition, in collaboration with A5 Magazine, will display for sale illustrations and a first-of-its-kind illustration magazine, featuring a plethora of promising Israeli illustrators engaged in connecting and disconnecting humanity from new and old spiritual objects and dimensions.
