The Artist-in-Residence Program provides local and visiting artists, curators, and researchers with accomodation and studio facilities at the Tile Factory, providing a unique space for the creation, development and exchange of creative ideas and projects. The program serves most of all as a meeting place for artists: facilitating creative encounters, discussions and the exchange of experiences, and then opening these up to the public, acting as a conduit to the outside world.

In a sense, the residency acts as an incubator for the creation and exchange of ideas, experiences and representations. In the course of residency, our public - both within the region and further afield - are encouraged to engage with activities planned to help create awareness of one's own cultural difference and uniqueness. Each artist is given the opportunity to propose and focus on a particular project while in residence, which may be influenced or inspired by the reality of daily life in the city, the country and the region. Opportunities to work with local artists and the local community during the residencies will be plentiful and strongly encouraged.  

Applications are currently closed.

Zoe Leonard

Zoe’s visit to Jerusalem was initiated by her interest in capturing the many layers of social, economic, and historical information visible in humble, everyday objects.  In Images from Palestine, she set about taking photographs of the assembled display of objects throughout the old city market streets of Jerusalem. Steering away from deliberate calculation, Zoe’s images taken in Jerusalem explore the visual language on the streets, capturing incidental details, which might be systematic of a greater cultural whole.

Zoe also contributed to the Xposure publication in addition to her solo exhibition at Gallery Anadiel.  


Born in 1961 in Liberty, New York. 
In 1992 Leonard had her first solo exhibition with her New York gallery Paula Cooper and was included in that year’s Documentary IX.  Since then she has had solo exhibitions of her work at Jennifer Flay Gallery, Paris; The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago; the Vienna Secession; Gallery Anadiel, Jerusalem; the Kunsthalle, Basel; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to name a few.
