19 Ben Atar Street, Tel Aviv
Alfred Gallery launched its activity in 2005 in a small space located at Florentin neighborhood in south Tel Aviv. On its first year it featured mainly solo exhibitions of the 14 founding artists, most of whom are HaMidrasha graduates, while later on the galley started hosting additional artists. The move to the new and spacious venue on Levontin Street allowed the gallery to develop and expand its scope, and establish its status as an arena of an ongoing, regular activity. Due to a real-estate project, the gallery was evacuated from Levontin Street in 2011, and moved to its current location on Ben Atar Street, in the industrial part of south Florentin.
Alfred Express in Haifa-Jerusalem-Tel Aviv
The invitation of Haifa Museum of Art met the members of Alfred in the midst of contemplations concerning career and the art world. They decided to offer as many artists as possible of those who had exhibited at the gallery, the next logical step: a museal solo exhibition. 46 solo exhibitions will be displayed one after the other, changing on a weekly basis, each preserving the customary components and procedures: curator, text, opening, gallery talk. Alfred Express brings forth issues concerning career, the state of the young artist and the young curator and the status of the museum, and questions the hierarchies of the art world.
