The Center for Contemporary Art was founded in 1997 to promote contemporary art disciplines. The Center engaged in the production of 6 exhibitions every year (group and solo shows) of Israeli and international artists. In addition the Center initiated The Fund for Video Art and Experimental Cinema (with the support of the Israeli Film Council), which supports the production of new works. The Fund is expected to close next year due to changes made by the Film Council.
Visitors to Fresh Paint will be able to select works from the Fund’s archive to be screened at the CCA’s exhibition space by a “Juke Box” stand containing 100 works produced by the Fund.
Also a special sale of unique limited editions by Israeli artists will be held in an effort to expand the CCA’s activities and raise more funds for new productions.
