Hanina Contemporary Art Gallery was founded in 2008 as an exhibition and art lectures space at 25 Hanina street in Jaffa. The exhibitions included some of the best established Israeli artists as well as the younger generation.
After the activity in the original location was suspended, Hanina was re-established by 16 young artists as a collectively owned non-profit gallery, and it is now operating from its current space in the south of Tel Aviv, at Shvil Ha'Meretz 5.
Hanina is a truly collaborative gallery which is not based on an economic logic: its objectives include promotion of cultural dialogues and the development of a more diverse voice than the one heard in the ordinary Israeli art world.
Hanina’s diverse artistic activities include evening studies, lectures, films and video works shows or even model drawing. The 16 gallery members, graduates of various institutions and life courses, live and work in different places around Israel. These artists devote their time, talent, vision and resources to the existence of the gallery, free of any economic interests, and see Hanina’s activity as an act of giving.
