Barbur Gallery is facing immediate shutdown due to eviction proceedings instigated by the Jerusalem municipality. Funds raised in this exhibition will be devoted to the struggle for the continued existence of the gallery – a home for pluralistic, open culture since its founding as a non-profit in 2005.
Hundreds of artists from across the country have contributed work in the effort to ensure the existence of this community-centered gallery. Located in the center of Nahlaot, adjacent to Mahane Yehuda market, it is a unique and important fixture in the neighborhood and serves the efforts to revitalize the city center. Three days of art, performances and lectures will be held in the center of Tel Aviv, exactly one month before the court hearing.
