It is a monumental moment in Israeli art, Gordon Gallery is moving from their Ben Yehuda location, where the branch has stood for over 35 years, to south Tel Aviv. The well-established gallery launched in 1966 is dedicated to hosting exhibitions with a loaded roster of Israeli and international artists.

The Ben Yehuda final exhibition is a crash course in Israeli art history through the eyes of Gordon Gallery. The mini-biography of the gallery’s collection shows lesser-known works by notorious artists such as Raffi Lavie and self-portraits by Aviva Uri. The artworks are divided thematically showing off the diverse techniques of the artists such as Mitchel Plantic, Yehiel Shemi, and Dganit Berest.

Meticulously arranged, each corner is packed from ceiling to floor with sculptures, paintings, and videos spanning through decades from the 1960s until today. The final exhibition concludes Gordon Gallery’s north Tel Aviv chapter celebrating generations of artists and marks the start of a geographic movement. The gallery’s new location will be neighbored by Alon Segev Gallery, just a step away from Gordon’s Hapalech branch.

Catch the exhibition at Gordon Gallery before June 30, Ben Yehuda Street 95, Tel Aviv.
