FRAMED is an non profit organization offering monthly cultural events, combining a live music performance with an art exhibition.
Offering a space for social and cultural interaction, we aim to bring together a community of artists, musicians and their audience in an engaging experience at an intimate setting
The musicians we invite – each acclaimed in their field, from jazz, classical and opera to electronic, singer-songwriters, world music and more – are paired with a presentation by an exceptional visual artist or artist collective With works including painting, photography, drawing, installation art and more.
FRAMED derives its name from the frame of an artwork, yet for us it likewise signals a neutral spatial framework ready to accommodate a host of artistic expressions.
In choosing the artists and exhibits for each event – often made specifically for FRAMED and presented for the first time – we aim at a cross-pollination of the visual and auditory, both among the works featured and how they are experienced by the audience.
The engagement of audiences with the performance gives way to something elusive and hard to pin-down: In the space between performer, premises, visual art and those attending, there is a special experience that is time-specific yet memorable – something akin to inspiration, in that it encourages further creativity and openness to others.
While the events are presented in English, they feature a wealth of languages, among them Hebrew, German, Arabic, Spanish, Japanese and Dutch. A multi-lingual discourse is at the core of our project, as we’d like to reach out to myriad cultures – in the sense of spoken languages but no less as pertains musical expression and artistic practices. Rather than an obstacle, we see diversity as a pathway to greater contact and communication.
We will soon reveal more information regarding our location and our new plans/events.
TBA. We are moving soon to our own location.
