The Art Libraryby Alison Roberts | 27.06.16
The largest and most comprehensive collection relating to art, architecture, design, photography and culture in Israel, The Art Library at the Tel Aviv Museum is the ultimate destination for art enthusiasts, students, or those simply looking for inspiration. Designed by Professor Preston Scott Cohen and architect Amit Nemlich, the Library is a modern and complex array of light flooded spaces.
Courtesy of the Ted Arison Family Foundation, the Library is home to the most extensive collection with over 100,000 books, 90 printed periodicals, and an up to date collection of electronic journals, multimedia, and computer databases.
Visitors have unprecedented access to the Documentation Center for Israeli Art, a thorough and centralized database documenting artistic activity in Israel. Complete with over 7,000 artist’s portfolios, the center’s digital database and online Israeli Art Directory maintain an impressive record of events not only in the country, but relevant international biennials and exhibitions.
Library Admission is included with your museum entrance or annual membership.
