Koresh is a non-profit organization promoting experimental contemporary art through exhibitions, workshops, talks and events. Initially we organized shows and events outdoors or in the common areas of a large housing complex located at Koresh Street 14. Koresh 14 was founded in 2007. In 2009, the Jerusalem municipality decided to give us permanent space inside this building. It is not by accident that we decided to open a gallery in a residential building. We want to bring art closer to life and into communities. Some projects have been closely connected to the building and its history.

 

Upon graduating from art school, students often experience a crisis. As they lose a shared, supportive environment that invites collaboration and enables mutual inspiration, these aspiring artists often lose their way. Koresh was conceived as a solution to this problem. We wanted to provide a social environment to enable artistic dialogue and collaboration. Through the years, we have collaborated with Bezalel: teaching workshops, organizing panels, and more.
