Claire Breukel, Chief curator and Director of Y.ES Contemporary Art El Salvador, was recently invited to join Artis’ 15th semi-annual Curatorial Research Trip to Israel.  Artis is an American art organization that brings awareness to contemporary art in Israel. The organization provides grants and research, public programs, and is an advocate for artists.  The Curatorial Research Trip provides leading members of the international art community an in-depth exploration of the artistic community in Israel.  Those invited are able to experience museums, alternative art spaces, architectural walks, studio visits and presentations with artists, curators, and influential thinkers.
