The Wilfrid Israel Museum which was founded in 1959 was the first museum in Israel to exhibit East Asian art. Recently the museum is focusing on a humanistic and multi -cultural approach, which draws its origins from the character of Wilfrid Israel himself. The museum offers a permanent exhibition of East Asian art from the museum’s collection alongside exhibitions of contemporary artists both from Israel and from the Far East. This last autumn we had an exhibition of a Japanese artist, Onishi Yasuaki, who came to Israel and stayed in the Kibbutz for 3 weeks during which he built an installation from plastic sheets and warm glue.
