Gordon Gallery was established in 1966 on Gordon Street, Tel Aviv, and has since held hundreds of exhibitions and published countless catalogs and art books. The art gallery is renowned for its collection of fine Israeli art, one of the largest of its kind, and for representing today's leading Israeli artists as well as several important estates.
In 1975, the gallery expanded its operation to engage in the auctioning of Israeli art. In 1977 it became the first official auction house in Israel, making it a cornerstone in the Israeli art market. The gallery and auction house played an instrumental role in building some of the most prestigious collections of Israeli art, both locally and abroad.
In 2016, on its 50th anniversary, Gordon Gallery moved to a new venue at Hazerem Street in southern Tel Aviv, designed by Gottesman-Szmelcman Architects. In its new home, the gallery focuses on contemporary Israeli and international art, with an emphasis on international exhibitions, collections, centering its attention on the next generation of artists and art lovers.
In 2018, an additional, extensive 400-sqm space was inaugurated at nearby 6 Hapelech St., working with a new, younger stable of artists, as a natural continuation to the established Gordon Gallery. In 2019, a new Sculpture Garden was installed down the street, at 4 Hamanoa St, and in 2021 Gordon Gallery opened an additional space at Sapir Center in Jerusalem’s Givat Shaul neighborhood.
Together, the three art galleries and Sculpture Garden offer a comprehensive view of Israel’s Art of today, combined with the perspective gained from decades of exhibiting leading contemporary art.
