“Talking Art” is a project initiated in 2013 by Shani Werner. As it manifests the mediation of contemporary art to the public, we strive to “talk art” as much as we can. We believe that understanding art is also a way to understand the place in which it was made. As so, Israeli art is a port to getting to know this complex and beautiful country.
We offer private art, architecture and urban culture tours leaded by experienced guides from various fields – art critiques, curators, street artists, architectures and more.
