Exhibitions

 "... Our goal is to make the experience of going to a play or to a concert in this or that hall, into a an doorway into a diverse world of events related to theatre and music, in all the halls and spaces of the building. We want to unify the common spaces to the extent possible, so that the public can meet and exchange opinions - to create a living connection between the events that happen in the different halls." (Nadler, Nadler, Bixon Architects, planners of the Theatre).

The Jerusalem Theatre compound was planned from the outset to express its raison d'etre of providing a complete cultural experience to the audience. The Theatre's lobbies play an essential role in creating this all-encompassing experience. The common spaces function as art galleries for painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, digital works, textile works, and more. The exhibits include solo exhibits by well-known artists and beginning artists, group exhibitions, art-school graduate exhibitions, and thematic exhibitions.

The compound provides a distinguished forum for the artistic community in Israel and in Jerusalem in particular. The Theater helps expose the artists to wider audiences, while exposing the Theatre's visitors to the visual arts.

Major exhibits 
"Fashion Show" This tribute to the costume designers of the Hebrew theatre, initiated by the Jerusalem Theatre, included 120 costumes, from The Dybbuk to the present. About half of the costumes in the exhibit are originals, and the rest are reconstructions. Sketches and photographs from the different plays were also on display.

Aboriginal art exhibition
The exhibition "Mythology and Reality," produced in cooperation with the Israel Museum, displayed Aboriginal art works for the first time in Israel. Aboriginal art reflects thousands of years of culture, from the social, spiritual, artistic, and philosophical angles, and represents an ancient way of life through contemporary artistic means.

"Thank God who has made me a woman"
One hundred portraits of women, taken by women from the "women photographing" community. The exhibition was an artistic response to the debate over the issue of the exclusion of women in Israel.

Sculpture in the Theatre
The Theatre compound contains three major sculptures that create a continuity between the exterior and interior of the building. In a precedent-setting move, in the earliest planning stages of the compound, the planners asked to incorporate sculpture into the architecture itself, to make it an integral and organic part of the compound. The work on the outside plaza, which is integrated with the terraces, faces a sculpture-relief above the main entrance and leads into the interior sculpture in the tall space in the central lobby. The three concrete sculptures were commissioned from the sculptor Yehiel Shemi.

The exhibitions are open to the public on the following days and times:

Sun. - Thurs. 16:30 - 21:30 | Fri.12:00 - 15:00 | Sat. from the end of Shabbat to 21:30 and while the Theatre is open for performances.
