Tel Aviv is not short on art galleries, and you can spend an entire day jumping from one to the next. However, there is one particular street clustered with galleries, and it is known as the Gallery District. Gordon Street and the close by Ben Yehuda Street are lined with dozens of galleries, each with a particular style and artistic focus. Spend a day wandering around these curated streets and find your favorite Gordon gallery.

The Kibbutz Art Gallery was founded by the Kibbutz Movement Alliance immediately after the Six Day War. The kibbutz movement was at the height of its power, and this gallery was meant as an application to expose artists to the Tel Aviv and bring the kibbutz to the city. In April 1968, the first exhibition at the gallery was opened at 170 Ben Yehuda Street. The gallery was closed for 3 years due to disagreements between the movements, but when it reopened in April 1973, the basement bought 25 Dov Hoz Street, where the gallery remains today. In November 2004, the expanded Kibbutz Art Gallery opened, which sharpened its identity and its commitment to art. Current notable artists exhibited here include Ziv Ben Dov and Chana Yegar.
