Explore the “artistic jungle” of Ilana Goor’s work and eclectic collections
In 1995, internationally renowned artist, Ilana Goor, bought an 18th century hostel near Jaffa port and transformed it into a home for her and her collection of over 500 works of art. She gathered her collection throughout her travels in Israel and all over the world, including paintings, sculptures, video art, African and Latin American art, antiques, drawings, and furniture to name a few. The body of artwork represents a diverse group of artists as well as medias, but Goor constructed each room with distinctive artistic statements, pulling the works together and making the design just another exhibit of her creative talent. In addition to all of her permanent exhibitions, she hosts a number of intriguing temporary exhibits every year, offers guided tours, holds events such as concerts and lectures, and has an extensive shop.
