'Alfred Institute 'a non-profit cooperative organization for Art & Culture, whose purpose is to give support and exposure to young artists, is happy to invite you to participate in our annual group exhibition called 'Alfred & Co.'.

Once a year we hold a selling exhibition to raise funds to support our artist-run cooperative-gallery. This year, as we celebrate 10 years of activity, we plan on creating a surprise box of small scale international art for sale, in the center of the gallery.
Artists of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate in this project. We call on you to create a small work of art (either 2- or 3-dimensional) and send it to us using the post as mail art.

During the exhibition, all mail-art works will be offered in a blind sale for a symbolic price of 20NIS (a little over 5$). Visitors can purchase a surprise, one-of-a-kind, work of art, and earnings will be used to support 'Alfred Cooperative Institute - a nonprofit organization' ongoing activity. Your art will remain sealed in the envelope/box until the buyer opens it. Mail art sent for the exhibition will not be returned.

Opening Night: December 10, 2015 (until December 19, 2015)
at the Alfred Gallery, Tel Aviv

Theme: The Circle

The circle is a shape that represents equality. All points on the circumference share the same distance from the center. When sitting in a circle, everyone sees everyone. Alfred Institute operates as a collaborative, equal and democratic organization. We call for artists to give their point of view to the concept 'The Circle'.
