Opening on Sunday 23 October from 2 - 6 pm, in the presence of the artist and with an opening speech by Philippe Van Cauteren, artistic director of S.M.A.K. (Ghent, BE).
We’re excited to present the second solo exhibition by Nahum Tevet (Israel, b. 1946) at the gallery. This exhibition shows for the first time a new group of large wall works, next to a group from the ongoing ‘Time after Time’ series. Tevet’s poetic sculptural language is based upon the connections between painting, sculpture and architecture. His new large wall sculptures challenge the legacy of minimalism and conceptual art in daring and exciting ways.
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), Sao Paulo Biennale (1994), Biennale of Lyon (1997), Carnegie International (1999) and Venice Biennale (2003), and museum shows at the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Vienna (1997), Dundee Contemporary Art (2004), Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma (2008), Kunstmuseum Bochum (2015), Museum Sztuki Łódź (2017) and Museum Villa Stuck, Munich (2017).
His work is included in many important museum collections including MOMA (New York), Philadelphia Museum of Art, Museum Sztuki (Łódź), Ludwig Foundation (Vienna), the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum (Krefeld), Magasin3 (Stockholm), Kunsthalle Mannheim, FRAC Bretagne, Israel Museum (Jerusalem) and Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
Enjoy the interesting conversation between Nahum Tevet and Nicola Trezzi, currently director and curator of the Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv, on the occasion of Tevet's exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bochum in 2015.
