Tel Aviv, Israel
Artists from around the region flock to Tel Aviv to display their works in local galleries, many of which are less than a decade old. The most cutting-edge work by local artists can be found at the Center for Contemporary Arts. This exhibit space houses conferences, lectures and special events in addition to displaying exciting and recent creations from Tel Aviv's most talented artists.
Street art covers many of the city's walls, showcasing underground talents. And UNESCO has given a nod to Tel Aviv. The world's foremost cultural organization recently designated it a "creative city for the media arts."
