It was somewhat of a challenge to open an art gallery near Mahaneh Yehuda in a partly religious neighborhood – not the perfect environment for a gallery with an avant-garde agenda.

Barbur Gallery, located in the middle of Nahlaot, is an independent, nonprofit space for art and local artists. Established in July 2005 by a group of artists who had recently graduated from the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in order to exhibit their works, it sought to infuse the area with a new spirit, bringing together young artists, the elderly of the neighborhood and the whole community to share in a project of renewal.
