The Dvir Gallery
Running for over 30 years and exhibiting la crème de la crème of the local and international contemporary art scene, the Dvir Gallery is certainly one of the most renowned art spaces in Tel Aviv. The gallery made the big move to the south of the city over a year ago, welcoming its visitors to an amazing five storey building. This is not a classic white cube, but the Dvir Gallery presents all the sobriety that you will be expecting from a contemporary gallery. The Dvir could have been seen as out of place in the area, but managed to embrace its new location with success. They represent A-list artists such as Nelly Agassi and Adel Abdessemed.
