Petach Tikva Museum of Art is a museum of contemporary art, featuring works by Israeli and international artists in diverse media: painting, sculpture, photography, video, film, architecture, installation, and performance.
The museum strives to foster young artists while offering a platform for seasoned artists who have not received museum exposure. The exhibitions staged at the Museum address a wide spectrum of themes from the Israeli cultural sphere, alongside universal issues pertaining to global society in the contemporary era, while promoting innovative approaches to the museum space and the breaching of traditional conventions and boundaries between different artistic mediums and their modes of presentation. These approaches are at the core of the curatorial line set by the museum since its reopening in 2000.
The Museum was established in 1964. It is located in the Museum Complex on the outskirts of Petach Tikva, bordering one of the most beautiful parks in the country, Independence Park, designed by renowned landscape architect, Lipa Yahalom.
