Some twenty four artists, writers and celebrities joined together for a special street art exhibition taking place at Rabin’s square, Tel Aviv, in support of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. If in Israel for business or pleasure, make sure you don’t miss this unique event organized by ONeVoice – an NGO active both in Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The name of this exhibition is best translated: “Until smoke comes out the peace pipe” and it calls for Israeli and Palestinian leaders to resume the peace talks and to stay at the negotiation table until peace prevails in the region.

The joint-installation will include 24 chairs, 2 meters high each, designed by famous artists, poets, chefs and other famous Israeli personas. The chairs will be placed around an enormous table symbolizing the peace negotiations table. OneVoice aspires to expose and empower the wide – but sometimes silent -majority of Israelis and Palestinians who support the idea of two countries – Israel and Palestine – living in peace side by side. The design of each chair reflects the personal interpretations of the artists to the tricky process of bringing peace to a region afflicted with mistrust on the one hand and hope on the other.

Where and when: Rabin’s Square, Tel Aviv, April 25-28

Isragirl Tip: While visiting the square look up to the roof of Tel Aviv city hall building…You will see a gigantic ballooned Duck, known to Israelis as “HaBarvaz” (the duck) – a famous cartoon character created by cartoonist Dudu Geva who died 3 years ago. The duck was loved by many Tel-Avivians and the city decided to help Geva’s children commemorate their father’s vision for Tel Aviv by allowing the huge duck to sit on the roof for two weeks…
