biography

Nahum Tevet was born in Kibbutz Messilot, Israel, 1946 and he lives and works in Tel Aviv.

He studied painting with Raffi Lavie, 1969–1970

From the 1970s onwards, Tevet’s artistic project examines and deconstructs the fundamental concepts of "painting" and its' role within specific spaces, while critically referring to minimalism and conceptual art. These ideas developed to vast, multi-limbed and intricate installations involving the viewer in a rich visual and conceptual experience.

By the mid-1990s the scale of Tevet’s work began to grow dramatically, culminating in what may be the artist’s masterpiece, Seven Walks, a sprawling installation that Tevet worked on from 1997 to 2004 which was recently on view at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich.

Tevet has been the subject of major survey exhibitions at both the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv Museum. His work has been part of exhibitions worldwide since 1975, such as numerous solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the United States, among which Documenta 8 (1987), the Sao Paulo Biennale (1994), the Biennale of Lyon (1997) and the Venice Biennale (2003), but also museum show at the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Vienna (1997), the Carnegie International (1999), the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma (2008) and the Kunstmuseum Bochum (2015).

His work is included in many important museum collections including MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Portland Art Museum, Portland, Museum of Modern Art, Ludwig Foundation, MUMOK, Vienna, Kaiser Wilhelm Museum, Krefeld, FRAC Bretagne, France, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv.
