COLLECTION INFORMATION:

General Descripton of Artist Files Collection
The Information Center for Israeli Art at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem has catalogued Israeli artists' information since 1975. As of January 2010 the physical artist filing system has been moved into a digital environment that is publically accessible via the in-house database. This bilingual Hebrew and English database provides the researcher with a wealth of digitized material - artwork, bibliographical information, exhibitions invitations, reviews, newspaper clippings, videos - all linked to the digitized artist file. To date the Israeli Art Database consists of 12,000 Israeli artists with over 4500 linked works of art, thousands of newspaper articles, 13,000 exhibition invitations, 500 videos and a listing of thousands of published catalogues and books referencing each artist. Currently the digitization of a retroactive inventory of the contents of the physical files is underway.
