The Visiting Israeli Artists Program

Through its Visiting Israeli Artists Program, the Israel Institute brings Israeli artists from various disciplines – including film, music, choreography, and the visual arts – to North America. Visiting Artists reside for two to four months at some of the world’s most esteemed universities.

Originally launched as a standalone initiative in 2008 and integrated into the Israel Institute in 2013, the program’s objective is to foster high levels of interaction between Israeli artists-in-residence and the local communities where they are based, through classes, lectures, exhibitions, screenings, readings, and performances.

One of the largest organized residency programs of Israeli artists ever to launch in the United States, over 100 Israeli artists have participated in this program to date. The Visiting Israeli Artists Program has proven to be overwhelmingly successful at establishing meaningful connections between students and visiting artists, increasing collaboration between Israeli artists and their American counterparts, and spurring a lasting interest in Israel and Israel’s vibrant arts scene.
