We are a small white cube at a ground level at the center of Tel Aviv.
 We are neither a gallery, nor a museum. We are not commercial. Each time the artists create their work in the Office In Tel Aviv, they redefine its space. We are a contemporary art quantum, whose size and dimensions entice intimacy and privacy of curator-artist-space interactions. The viewer is invited to share it.
We exhibit projects in the "Office" and exhibitions out the "office" by the famous and the still anonymous.

We publish Terminal, a bi-lingual (Hebrew-English) 21st century art review. We are hard to define, because we change as the art changes – continuously.

From the Press

Founded in January 1994, “Office in Tel Aviv” is a curatorial office concurrently functioning as an alternative space for interdisciplinary art. The collaboration of a curator and an artist, working side-by-side on a daily basis in the same space, is an experimental concept, unprecedented in Israel.
The curatorial perception seeks out links and affinities to other fields, such as music, video, theatre, architecture, design, jewelry design, painting, photography and sculpture. Due to the Office’s small dimensions and its white-cube-like structure, a dialogue is created with the architechtual perception of space. The essential goal is to effectuate art which is as precise as possible, to follow the work of the artist, whether Israeli or foreign, through each and every stage, while accentuating the relevance of the space as a site.
Every year four artists exhibit their work within the framework of an
‘Office Project’ for a period of approximately two months, endeavoring to make the most out of the temporary artist-curator collaboration.

After ten years of exclusively exhibiting installation art, by the year 2003, we at Office in Tel Aviv sensed - just like the rest of the artworld, both local and international - an over-saturation and overuse of installation in contemporary art. Once ‘closing’ the installation season, the Office’s space had undergone a transformation, both in its cubic appearance and in the curatorial perception. At present we are oriented toward original creation in the fields of video, home movies and painting.

The Office’s intimate space allows close viewing, listening and linking to the world of art.

Terminal
Editor in Chief: Rachel Sukman

Terminal, in publication since January 1996, is a bi-lingual (Hebrew-English) review of 21st century art which strives to serve as a source of current information regarding artistic trends and happenings in Israel and abroad.

T
he magazine includes reviews of international exhibitions.

 

 The Stage section featuring young Israeli artists the Border Line section dedicated to Arab and Palestinian artists, reviews of new museums, interviews with curators of international biennials, permanent exposure to selected Israeli and foreign artists in the Studio Visit section, as well as artist pages by Israeli artists in every issue.

The articles in Terminal are intended to be informative rather than critical. The review’s design is aimed at a wide audience, endeavoring to draw attention to art transpiring in a relatively esoteric place. Terminal serves as a virtual space aiming to promote dialogue between Israeli and international art, and thus contribute to the global exposure of art originating in this part of the world. Our goal is to produce a cultural artifact as an object of beauty and aesthetics.
