Fresh Paint 9 was held on 28 March 2017 till April 1st. Each year, and 2017 is no exception, the location of the fair was unprecedented and surprising. This year the fair took place in the new and impressive building of the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, at Tel Aviv University. The extraordinary building is under construction and fresh paint 9 inaugurated it before it houses the university's nature collection and becomes the first of its kind Museum in Israel.
The fair provided a point of view on current state of affairs in local art and design scenes through international art shows, selected projects by galleries and art institutions, the up-coming independent artist’s greenhouse, the video greenhouse, and a presentation of Israel finest product designers.
As every year, the fair included Fresh Paint’s flagship social project - the Secret Postcard Project, and the Fresh Paint Cultural Salon - a setting for talks, lectures, and meetings about art and culture. Workshops for children took place at the fair during the weekend.
