After New-York, London, Sao Paulo, L.A., Barcelona, Nairobi,Chicago, Mexico-City, Copenhagen, Toronto, Sevillia, Rome, Bogota, San Francisco, Madrid, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Bucharest, Berlin, Panama-City, Montreal and New Orleans… The first Telavivi Slideluck Potshow took yesterday-evening (September 19th.) place in Tel Aviv at the old town-hall (Beit Ha-Ir, Bialik Square).
The Slideluck Potshow is a New-York based, non-profit arts organization, that provides an opportunity for artists and art-appreciaters to gather around food, friends and artwork. The event, which began in a Seattle background, over ten years ago, draws now a crowd of a thousand in NYC.
At the Tel Aviv event 20 local and Israeli related artists showed their work for a packed house.
It was also a ‘goodbye party’ for American art-installation photographer Spencer Tunick. At the slideshow we saw pictures of his art-shoots around the globe (e.g. the shoot in Amsterdam in 2003). We also saw the first stills of Spencer’s shoot at the Dead Sea (1.200 naked Israeli folks between the age of 18 and 77) of last Saturday-morning, September the 17th and some beautiful pictures of the ‘secret’ shoot at the Ein-Bokek waterfalls (woman only).
The first Slideluck Potshow Tel Aviv-Yafo was a big success and we have to thank Sivan Lustgarden and the SPLS Tel Aviv team for this!!
Also a big Thank You to Spencer Tunick and Ari Fruchter, the organizer of the Spencer Dead-Sea Shoot.
