About Rotem Ruff
Rotem is an independent curator and educator and joined Artis as Program Manager in 2017. Rotem has held positions in the Museum of Modern Art’s Education Department. She has initiated exhibitions and public programs in various institutions across New York City. In Israel, Rotem has worked as curator at the Haifa Museum of Art and regularly organizes public programs, screenings, and exhibitions for several leading art venues in Israel. She has curated notable exhibitions — Critical Mass: Contemporary Art from India (2012, with Tami Katz-Freiman) at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and Bill of Lading (2013, with Nirith Nelson) at the Herzliya Museum of Art — after research in New Delhi, India, where she was a contemporary Indian art adviser to international institutions, curators and collectors.

Artis is an independent nonprofit organization that supports contemporary artists from Israel whose work addresses aesthetic, social and political questions to inspire reflection and debate. Artis was founded in 2004 by philanthropist Rivka Saker with the goal of amplifying international recognition of artists from Israel. Starting off as a series of public events timed with New York’s Armory Show, the organization’s scope expanded to include programs that invest in artists and cultural exchange. We raise our annual budget without governmental funds through the generosity of individuals and foundations that share our values. Artis is based in New York and Tel Aviv.
