Shaare Zedek House was inaugurated in 1902 and served as a hospital until 1980, when it became the Israel Broadcasting Authority headquarters. In 2021, the New Spirit Association moved into the building, turning it into a vibrant artistic and cultural space. The exhibition “Waiting Room” presents a contemporary tribute to the historic building. 66 artists gave their illustrative interpretation to anticipation and waiting. The diverse themes range from the modest mundane anticipation such as waiting for an avocado to sprout or the kettle to boil, for the bus to arrive or rain to fall, and all the way to expecting a baby, a relationship or a hug.
