3 Mercaz Sapir St., Jerusalem

Gordon Gallery, one of Tel Aviv’s most distinguished and longstanding art

institutions, will open a new and highly anticipated exhibition space in Jerusalem on December 22, 2021. The

inauguration of the space will feature two solo exhibitions by Israeli art luminaries, including Ofer Lellouche’s

"Recent Works” and a mini-retrospective by Aviva Uri, entitled "Death in God's Realm.”

An area reminiscent of Tel Aviv's Kiryat Hamelacha, the Gordon Gallery space is located in Jerusalem’s Sapir

Center industrial area, in the city's southwest, which has long been a pilgrimage site for art lovers. The area is home

to large industrial buildings, mainly serving the housing light industry, but also several artist studios, Yeshivas (a

Jewish educational institution), as well as Bezalel Academy of Art and Design's ultra-Orthodox branch, Oman,

located next door to the new gallery.

The new space will be launched in tandem with two solo exhibitions, presenting works by Israeli artists Ofer

Lellouche and Aviva Uri, and will precede upcoming solo exhibitions for the gallery's artists. Lellouche's exhibition,

"Recent Works," is centered on a monumental bronze sculpture, The Hug, whose wooden-earthen tones blend

perfectly with the industrial buildings revealed through the transparent gallery façade. In addition to the sculpture,

Lellouche will present nine small reliefs depicting the work process on the sculpture from different angles.
