Sommer Contemporary Art was founded in 1999 by Irit Fine Sommer.
Since its opening the gallery has been committed to promoting Israeli artists in the international art scene, as well as representing and exhibiting leading international artists in Israel and abroad. The gallery is distinguished by the deep relationships it develops with artists, from emerging and mid-career to established, by regularly collaborating with museums, biennials and publishing houses, and creating meaningful exhibitions and publications. International artists are often invited by the gallery to conduct extensive research and create specially-curated projects. They regularly present site-specific installations in the gallery's space, works that are formed out of a continuing dialogue and that cannot be witnessed in other venues.
In addition to these, Sommer Contemporary Art aims to bring artistic exchange, experimentation and discussion to the forefront. In the gallery's project room, "S2", young curators receive an opportunity to curate small scale exhibitions of emerging artists. The purpose of this initiative is to support the curatorial role and allow for diverse theoretical discussion to take place within the gallery compounds.
