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 Seven Walks, a sprawling installation that Tevet worked on from 1997 to 2004 which was recently on view at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich.
His solo and group exhibitions were held at presti- gious international museums and galleries, including The Isreal Museum in Jerusalem (1976, 1984, 2007), the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Tel Aviv (1991), the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Wien (1997), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk (2000), the MACRO in Rome (2008) and the Kunstmuseum Bochum (2015).
He also took part into important show such as Documenta 8 (1987), la Biennale di San Paolo (1994), la Biennale di Lione (1997) e la Biennale di Venezia (2003).
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.
