A long friendship links artists Efrat Natan and Nahum Tevet (*1947 and 1946). Both began their careers in Israel in the 1970s and both are now prominent figures in the art scene there. While Natan uses a poetic, formal vocabulary to examine her childhood in a kibbutz, Tevet develops monumental, three-dimensional installations that investigate experiences of space, limitations, color, and form.
The Museum Villa Stuck is the first institution to present a juxtaposition of the two artists' work. Both the catalogue and exhibition feature early works and documents of actions performed together, along with more recent works by Natan and Tevet. Profound essays and a conversation with the two artists conducted by the curator Verena Hein provide an in-depth look at their oeuvres.
Exhibition: 26 October, 2017-28 January, 2018, Museum Villa Stuck, Munich
