The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is a leading Israeli cultural institution welcoming over 1 MILLION visitors annually and home to an extraordinary collection of modern and contemporary art by Israeli and International artists.
Today the Museum Complex spans three unique buildings: the Main Building and sculpture garden, the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art, and the Herta and Paul Amir Building.
Recently restored, the Brutalist-style Main Building was designed by award winning architect Dan Eytan and dedicated in 1971. The building stands at the gateway to Tel Aviv, around the corner from the Azrieli towers, and at the head of the plaza shared between the Tel Aviv District Court and the Cameri Theater. The restoration features the Soraya and Younes Nazarian Experiential Education Center, a new home for the museum’s state of the art Education Program.
Inaugurated in 2011, the Herta and Paul Amir Building is a parametric masterpiece, designed by award-winning American architect Preston Scott Cohen.
A 15 minute walk away (down Sderot Shaul HaMelech and bearing left on Sderot Chen) is the Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art, dedicated in 1959 by the cosmetics titan. The Pavilion is currently set to commence renovation with the generous support of Eyal and Marilyn Ofer Foundation, and will be renamed the Eyal Ofer Building for the Arts.
Curatorial departments include:
Modern and Contemporary Art
Prints and Drawings
Architecture and Design
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art mounts 30-34 exhibitions annually throughout the Museum’s three buildings.
Recent exhibitions have featured Louise Bourgeois, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and R.H. Quaytman. Please visit http://www.tamuseum.org.il/exhibition-category/past-exhibitions for a full archive of past exhibitions.
Highlights of the museum’s extensive collection include Cezanne, Chagall, Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Gustav Klimt, Monet, Picasso, Pollock, Rothko and Van Gogh and contemporary artists like Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Sigalit Landau, Annette Messager, and Andy Warhol.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is proud home to the largest collection of Israeli art in the world, and allows 22 Israeli prizes each year.
Over 100,000 children, teens, adults, seniors, and soldiers participate annually in programs that serve as a model for museum education worldwide.
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art offers scholarships for underprivileged children and teens and is very proud of its Road to Peace program, which promotes tolerance by uniting Jewish and Arab children over a love of art.
