Art

Art enriches life
Every form of artistic expression is celebrated at Elma. In a world in which art is too often roped off from the rest of life, we believe it should be part of every day – even every moment. And we strive to weave it into every guest’s experience.
Take music, for example. Two concert halls designed by world-renowned Arup/Artec Consultants Inc., of New York offer acoustic experiences as perfect as can be found anywhere in the world for performances in every style.
The visual arts are equally well represented, with two expansive galleries designed to accommodate paintings and sculptures created by artists from Israel and all over the world. Flexible lighting and climate control allow for the display of all manner of visual art.
Four studios offer artists the opportunity to work in residency for extended periods of time so they can pursue their creative vision in a setting that is both peaceful and magnificent.

Elma Hall

Lovers of music will find a lot to love in Elma Hall. A 450-seat concert and recital hall designed by world-renowned Arup/Artec Consultants of New York, this space has been created with every feature necessary to ensure a breathtaking musical experience: twenty-five acoustic banners along the side walls that allow the space to be acoustically customized for each performance. A modular stage with acoustic curtains and panels that can be used to further fine tune the sound of a performance. These panels also allow for the hall to host multi-disciplinary performances like dance and theatre.
In addition to its acoustic innovations, Elma Hall also features a wide variety of lighting, audio, and video capabilities, a digital projector and cinema screen, and a new pipe organ especially designed and built by Bonn-based Orgelbau Klais.

The Cube

The Cube is the ideal venue for performances that are a bit more informal and intimate.
With 150 seats and reconfigurable stage and seating areas, it’s the place to immerse yourself in a jazz or rock concert, a dance performance, a lively recital, or a video installation. Its flexibility allows for interaction and engagement between the performer and audience, and features like a grand piano, surround sound systems, high definition video projectors, and other pieces of state-of-the-art equipment ensure a dazzling experience.
To enhance your enjoyment, a bar that serves food as well as drinks is located within The Cube.

Elstein Galleries

The Elstein Galleries are three expansive spaces designed to show works by artists from Israel and all over the world. Flexible lighting systems, modular designs, 750 square meters of exhibit space and complete climate control allow for the display of sculptures, paintings and installations of almost any size and style. Located on the upper level of the main building and with a stunning view of the surrounding landscape, they are the very heart of our arts complex.

The three exhibition halls vary in nature and scale. With its dramatic landscape vistas, Elstein Gallery One encourages communion with the natural world outside. Elstein Gallery Two is a fully enclosed white space that focuses attention exclusively to the art on display. And Elstein Gallery Three is a smaller space aglow with natural light.
Our galleries’ design and capabilities make them among the finest spaces of their kind in the world. They offer an environment that effortlessly recedes into the background, allowing the art displayed within to speak to the viewer with both power and intimacy.

exhibitions

When I first visualized the Elma Arts Complex, I imagined an open-space museum, full of motion. I wanted the first impression it left on visitors to be of an art venue imbued with the contemporary spirit of our art. Therefore, the architects were asked to design spaces in line with this vision. There are three galleries in Elma, specifically designed for the presentation of visual art in all its variety. They are equipped with up-to-date video and electronic systems and a sophisticated lighting system, they may be divided to fit the changing needs of the works on view, and offer diverse modes of installation. In addition to the galleries, art is displayed in all the public areas within Elma, from the entrance hall via the large hallways, coffee shop and artist
studios, to the first-floor corridors designed by Architect Yacov Rechter to be filled with natural, indirect light, which is perfect for the exhibition of art. All these spaces offer a variety of display modes for contemporary Israeli artists, both in visual and performance art, such as music, theater or dance. This is an apt expression of the cultural interdisciplinarity which is at the very heart of the Elma Arts Complex.
