Tel Aviv is one of the most dynamic and creative hubs for contemporary art in the Middle East. Young and accessible to anyone craving culture, Tel Aviv has an impressive number of galleries showcasing both local and international artists. One neighborhood located in the very south part of the city has particularly witnessed the blossoming of art – Kiryat Hamelacha. We check out five of the best art galleries in the neighborhood.

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.

Rosenfeld Gallery

Created in 1952 by Eliezer Rosenfeld, the gallery has been directed by Zaki Rosenfeld since 1995. This is probably one of the most contemporary and exciting art space in Tel Aviv. Despite its long and successful history as one of the prominent galleries in the city, they accomplished an amazing transformation by moving to the area, and showing an art connected with its surroundings. They are now primarily focusing on contemporary art and scouting new talents.

Indie Photography Group Gallery

The Indie Gallery recently reopened in the heart of the Kyriat Hamelacha, becoming renowned for being a bright, confidential space. Founded by a group of visual artists in 2010, you instantly feel that it is a venue dedicated to creation and experimentation, unlike many commercial galleries. The Indie Gallery aims to promote young but also established photographers and video artists through their group exhibitions, curated with fierce and cutting-edge vision.
