A Contemporary Art Gallery in Rothschild Blvd

It is unbelievable to think of the number of times I have walked past 6, Rothschild Boulevard totally unaware that there was an art gallery here.  It was only after I read a brief article which appeared in the June 2017 edition of British Vogue magazine that I learnt of its existence.  So, I went along to have a look, given my penchant for art galleries and museums.  It was a large, spacious gallery space with a high ceiling. The gallery comprised of two floors.  Architecturally it was very stark, made up of large concrete slabs which presented a blank canvas.  One presumes that the minimalist interior was designed specifically to allow the artwork to become the focal point.

There were several exhibitions on simultaneously.  The ground floor was entirely devoted to a solo exhibition by Tal Mazliach.  The following three pieces not counting the initial notice advertising his work are by him.

The gallery space upstairs featured works by Eitan Ben Moshe, Maya Gold, Gideon Rubin and Maya Zack among others.

The colourful circular light boxes were by Eitan Ben Moshe.  They had great depth and originality and were made up of geometrical patterns.

This piece was by Maya Zack.  Unfortunately, the photograph makes it look flat and does not do it justice.  It was in effect a 3 dimensional (3-D) work.  One had to view it through the lenses of special 3-D glasses made of paper to fully appreciate the work.  It was fascinating and very cleverly made.
