Past Exhibitions

Heads and Flowers: Bianca Eshel Gershuni, Digital Drawings
27.01.2020 - 26.05.2020

The colourful flower paintings on display in the exhibition were all done last year. They are displayed together with several head paintings from a decade ago; both are recurrent motifs in Bianca Eshel Gershuni's work through the years. These highly colourful, expressive paintings hold a surprise - the physical presence of the means of painting is absent. We are looking at prints, from digital files, of paintings created with software. They are handmade but do not involve paper and brushes.

Once Upon a Time in Be’er Sheva
12.06.2019 - 31.08.2019

The Negev Museum of Art is proud to present to the public a selection of photographs, posters, documents, and films depicting life in Be'er Sheva during the first decades after the founding of the city 70 years ago. The exhibition is the initiative of the Central Zionist Archives to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its foundation, in collaboration with the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive which is currently marking its 50th anniversary.

Good news!
12.06.2019 - 31.08.2019

One of the main goals of museums, including art museums, is to collect, document, and conserve valuable artworks for the general public in the present and future. In recent years, the Negev Museum of Art has devoted great efforts to creating temporary exhibitions of artists from Israel and around the world, thus establishing its status and position as a significant museum among Israel’s art museums. Behind the scenes, we continue the process of enlarging and upgrading our collection.

Anna Ticho: Impressions
20.02.2019 - 01.06.2019

An exhibition at the Negev Museum of Art of works by Anna Ticho, one of Israel’s greatest artists, is a special event, partly because her oeuvre is not often displayed.

Doris Arkin: It Happened
20.02.2019 - 01.06.2019

What has happened? When and where? Past events and memory play an important role in Doris Arkin's work, serving as raw materials for her sculpture. The objects the sculptures are constructed from function as carriers of material, historical, and cultural information.

Noam Rabinovich: Wheat
20.02.2019 - 01.06.2019

The initiative for the exhibition by Noam Rabinovich at the Negev Museum of Art was an unusual step: sowing wheat in autumn 2015 in the museum’s grounds, a project envisaged and executed by the artist.

Art and Concrete – Special Exhibit
24.10.2018 - 02.02.2019

Following and supplementing the exhibition Concrete Dreams we are presenting two artworks that conduct a dialogue with the tradition of Israeli construction and the associations it evokes - the daring and power embodied in construction with concrete.

Hanna Sahar: The Brightest Star
27.06.2018 - 30.09.2018

Light, darkness, landscape, the human body, portraits and still-lifes that are shown in this exhibition are typical motifs in the work of Hanna Sahar (b. 1966) over twenty years.

Osvaldo Romberg: Chromatic Circle
27.06.2018 - 30.09.2018

The Negev Museum of Art joins other museums and galleries, in Israel and world-wide, presenting exhibitions honouring the 80th birthday of Buenos Aires-born Osvaldo Romberg, the Israeli-international artist.

Dalia Amotz: Lights
27.06.2018 - 30.09.2018

Like the light in her photographs, Dalia Amotz is elusive and hard to define within Israel’s art world. Amotz (1938-1994) is known in the milieu of artists and photographers as an original creative artist, uncompromising, with a singular artistic language and intellectual depth, and whose career was brief.
