31 Peretz Street, Tel Aviv
Hanina was founded in its initial format by Jonathan Hirschfeld and Yakir Segev in February 2008 as a space for exhibitions and lectures on 25 Hanina Street in Jaffa. Since October 2009 the gallery has been operating in its current residence on Peretz Street in south Tel Aviv, not far from the Old Central Bus Station, on the borderline of the "other" city. Today the group numbers 15 young artists, alumni of HaMidrasha and Bezalel as well as other walks of life, most of whom engage in work with adolescents and art education as part of their everyday life. In addition to the regular exhibitions, the place hosts music evenings, art workshops and study groups.
For Haifa-Jerusalem-Tel Aviv the group members chose to look at themselves as art immigrants who arrived in Tel Aviv from different places. Under the title "Compost" they present different models of working together and individually, and display on the walls of the museum works that touch one another, coexisting separately but in uncomfortable proximity. Under the lead of Adi Ben-Horin the members of Hanina brought into the museum soil from Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, performing a kind of a symbolic ritual of soil exchange, which carries a history of its own in the history of Israeli art.
