Documentation Center for Israeli Art

The Documentation Center for Israeli Art holds records on Israeli artists and Israeli artistic activity, for use in study, teaching and research.

The collection includes newspaper cuttings, exhibition invitations, press releases and artist’s resumes, and presents bibliographical records of all items. 
 
The Documentation Center holds original personal archives of such personalities as Batia Lichansky, Anni Neuman, Moshe Gur-Ari, Ze'ev Raban, Aryeh Lubin, as well as photocopied archives of artists, among them Avigdor Stematsky, Yosef Zaritsky, Yehezkel Streichman, and many others. 
 
In addition, the Center catalogues materials by subject, e.g. the Holocaust in art, art biennials, artist groups, collectors, and documentation of artistic work in Israel's major museums.
 

Items received on or after 1 November 2010 are filed in the Digital Archive for Israeli Art.
 
The documentary material may be viewed on the Library computers only, but the bibliographical data are accessible from any computer.
 

We would like to call upon Israeli artists, researchers, curators, gallery owners and collectors to send us catalogues, essays and other documentation.
