Signs and symbols
The works on display in the Migdal Gallery serve as a point of reference, while metaphorically mapping a number of Mediterranean landscapes. The gallery's second floor serves as an observatory overlooking the landscape -the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Tel Aviv and its environs, and the Samarian Mountains in the East.
Photomenta features the works of some 30 photographers from Mediterranean countries. The exhibition extends throughout the museum pavilions, the Migdal Gallery and the Archaeological Garden. These different sites serve as "port cities" from which visitors can embark on a journey throughout the Mediterranean.
