‘Spirit of Tel Aviv.’.

Tel Aviv is a fast-paced city. Everyone is constantly on the move from point A to point B, Allenby to Rothschild, Dizengoff to Azrieli. Perhaps a character strikes interest in transit – a street musician trying to make a shekel or the older woman with the white foundation. However, these people are fleeting, unstable. Now, the Bauhaus buildings, Dizengoff’s fountain, the Rainbow Hotel, these are the stable icons that define Tel Aviv’s colorful personality, something Shirley Pavell-Gilboa and Ido Biran recognized in their new exhibition, “White City in Full Color.”The intimate gallery space nestled at the back of the Prima Tel Aviv Hotel contains a color palette of mixed media works, paintings, digital illustrations, photography, and a handful of other media that piece together the White City’s architecture, alleys, and special moments into an “urban mosaic.”
