The Center for Contemporary Art is Israel’s leading institution for contemporary art. The museum, a non-profit organization, puts on 4-6 big exhibitions every year by local and international artists. The artists’ work is often inspired by a theme or an idea suggested by the gallery. In addition to exhibitions, the CCA offers public programming, including panels, screenings, talks with artists, and performances. The museum has displayed the works of notable international artists like Marina Abramovic, Sharon Lockhart, Gary Hill, Rosa Barba, and Christian Jankowski. Many significant Israeli artists had their first solo exhibitions displayed at the CCA, including Yael Bartana, Guy Ben Ner, Roee Rosen, Nir Evron, Michal Helfman, and Nira Pereg.
The museum was founded in 1998 in a small room at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque to encourage contemporary art in Israel. In 2005, the CCA moved to its own building in the Rachel and Israel Pollak Gallery. The present-day space contains two exhibition spaces, an auditorium, and an entrance square used for exhibitions, projects, screenings, lectures, and performances.
The CCA is a central part of the cultural foundation in Israel. It is dedicated to its mission of captivating audiences with avant-garde contemporary art.
