Museums of Bat-Yam: "City Factory" - A Repurposing Project

Hi there,

As part of "City Factory", a project created by the artist Itamar Shimshoni, unwanted objects and toys have been collected over the past few months from all over the city of Bat Yam, and through artistic actions will become repurposed into new sculptures and contemporary works of art.

The objects arrive at the factory, undergo a sorting and cataloging process and are used by the factory's skilled staff, which includes designers, students and retirees from Bat-Yam who work together on welding, painting, carpentry, sewing and more.

WHEN: Thursday, July 22nd - Aug 1st, 2021

WHERE: Factory City, 6 Shaul Hadadi St, Bat-Yam
