Open House: Guided tours at Chelouche Gallery Thu-Sat 18-20.05.2023

A chance to hear about the history of this building that currently houses Chelouche Gallery. The elegant Ottoman structure, which dates back to 1830, used to be the residence of the first British consul in Palestine – Assad Yakub Kayat. It recently underwent a restoration process that involved meeting stringent regulations to adapt it to a gallery.

During the tours, Dani Penzias, the architect who was in charge restoring, rehabilitating and preserving the building, and Nira Itzhaki, the founder and chief curator of the gallery, will describe the architectural and curatorial challenges that characterized the project: how to build a gallery in a building that was not designed for that purpose, and how to deal with the limitations inherent in the structure. The tours will also touch on the historical background of the building.

The gallery will host three open tours.

Thursday, May 18th at 17:00 – a tour with the architect Dani Penzias
Saturday, May 20th at 14:00 – a tour with the architect Dani Penzias
Friday, May 19th at 12:00 – a tour with Nira Itzhaki.

Reservations are not required.
