What is the origin name of the gallery ?
The Pop-Up Gallery
The name is based on the existing concept of the pop - up, That is the idea of a temporarily established definition, And then fades, And expresses the idea that we can reinvent ourselves in any form and in any location, Both in space at the pharmacist and any other place, To innovate and excite our audience.
Artistic and social space we operate in constantly changing. We do not want to set ourselves, The artists we represent and present, And our audience.
Tell the vision and concept of the gallery
The concept of the gallery is the lack of boundaries. Central vision is to bring art and artists from abroad”For Israel. The goal is to surprise and excite, And bring in community art lovers - lovers of art, Collectors and artists, Things they did not know, Or did not expect to receive on their home turf. We aim to create a connection, Both conceptual and real, Among the”A particular, And Israel in general, And between artists and galleries around the world operate.
Due to the fact that we are acting independently, Regardless of any institution or obligation exists, We have no restrictions in terms of artistic vision – We can not afford to open the gallery every artist we love and believe in him, Without considering aspects such as Goodwill , What its sales potential, And what art is doing, And in terms of the consumer - we are not mounted any concept, So we can always be outside the box in terms of the product we offer.
Equally important - we have the possibility to come for consumers technically.
For example, Daughter”A profit interest (The current reality is necessary) Of art at cheap prices. This interest stems from the fact that many art consumers can not afford high-priced works, If the price of work to exceed a few hundred dollars, It makes them irrelevant.
The artists are a problem in this situation, They often find it difficult to sell higher priced works. Artist prefers to work often priced lower price than they think the work is worth, To be able to hope that it will be sold.
Since our vision is much more economic, And we have no desire or commitment to a fixed cash, We are working on a payment system that will allow consumers to buy even more expensive pieces, As they can not afford it.
Possibility of our, Break the boundary between art and cost type, And the audience consumes and acquires it in the end, Is a key element underlying our vision.
