Following weeks of house move related activity, it was good to take time out today and visit our favourite haunt, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. I am going to miss this place. It is an architectural delight and the temporary and permanent exhibitions are of a very high calibre. It was good to escape the heat, humidity and the crowds and spend several hours in this oasis of calm. We saw photographs by Andy Warhol, a fascinating temporary exhibition by Fatma Shanan focusing on oriental carpets and another temporary exhibition entitled Collective Reflections on the Museum Collections. There were of course other exhibitions but these ones caught my eye. Below are a selection of photographs from these exhibitions.
