For the fourth time this November, the 10-day Illustration Week event will be held in Tel Aviv. This year promises 60 exhibitions (most of which are brand new, created especially for Illustration Week), with 500 participating Israeli illustrators and artists.
The exhibitions won't just be in one crowded space either. They will be displayed in cultural and artistic spaces, cooperative galleries, museums, and entertainment venues throughout the city: from Old Jaffa and the Jaffa Port in the south, through Kiryat Hamelacha, Rothschild Boulevard, and the city center, to the Eretz Israel Museum and the Rosin Community Center in Tel Aviv's northern area. Most events are open to the general public free of charge.
In addition to the diverse and original exhibitions, this year, for the first time, Abraham Hostel will be hosting a variety of activities, including: a Friday afternoon party with the BPM DJs, the 'LoopdeLoop' Animation Festival, an illustrated book exchange where you can trade your illustrations & comics, and finally, a pop-up school for illustrators with workshops and master classes by the best lecturers in the field.
Overwhelmed? You can always take one of the guided tours conducted by the trained and professional staff of 'Talking Art' at the various exhibitions.
Illustration Week takes place from November 16-25. Full details and updates can be found on their WEBSITE.
