Manofim – Contemporary Art Festival 2018

As the flagship event of Jerusalem’s contemporary art scene, Manofim is also the kickoff event of the city’s exhibition season.

Culture & Heritage


This independent initiative takes place in October and was created and is directed by a group of Jerusalem-based artists

Manofim week is held at the beginning of the academic year. During the gala opening night, exhibition openings are held in art venues throughout the city and free shuttle buses transport visitors between locations.

Throughout the week, multidisciplinary art events take place in Talpiot, the city outskirts, Mishkenot Shaananim, Jaffa Street, east Jerusalem, Musrara and Nachlaot.

And once again, the festival will culminate with “Spiral Canon” at Binyan Clal, where local choirs will perform in a myriad of languages, “transforming the commercial center’s balconies into a polyphonic dialogue.”
