About the Museum
The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art is devoted to exhibiting Israeli and international art, and provides particular support to young artists. Programming at the museum engages directly with Israel’s socio-political issues and exhibitions seek to contribute meaningfully to complex national debates. Each year the museum presents approximately 50 exhibitions in four “cycles”, including a number of diverse solo shows linked by their relevance to current events. Past exhibitions have included works by Hou Chun-Ming, Nira Pereg, Parastou Forouhar, and Maya Zack. Founded in 1965, the museum moved to its current home, a brutalist building by award-winning architect Yaakov Rechter, in 1975.
