Since 2007, Artis has hosted hundreds of curators, museum professionals, and writers from around the world on group and independent research trips to Israel. This program facilitates the exploration of cultural developments in Israel and provides a platform for inquiry, projects, and initiatives to emerge. The week-long intensive itinerary includes visits to museums, alternative spaces, collections, and studios and discussions with leading artists, curators, historians and influential thinkers.
