Moshe Ninio


Moshe Ninio born 1953, Tel Aviv, Israel. Lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. Ninio’s works are a result of a lengthy maturation and seek to shift the status of the image into another, polemical and spiritual realm. His ‘poor’, latent images, seized with the most trivial banality, inhabit space and define themselves in their relation to other works. The image’s meaning in Ninio’s work is complex and it is undoubtedly the iconic status of the image that predominates.

Ninio exhibited in numerous international exhibitions in different institutions such as NBA, Berlin, Germany; Musée d’art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme, Paris, France ; Santa Monica Museum of Art, Santa Monica, USA; Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris, France; Dvir Gallery, Tel Aviv, Israel; The Petah Tikva Museum of Art, Petah Tikva, Israel; Centre Pompidou – Musée National d´Art Moderne, Paris, France; Centre de l’image contemporaine (Montreal); Haifa Museum of Art, Haifa, Israel; International Biennial of contemporary Art, Jerusalem, Israel; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel. Ninio had numerous solo exhibitions. Among others, he exhibited in Musée d’art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme (Paris), Santa Monica Museum of Art (Santa Monica, CA), S.M.A.K. (Ghent), FRAC Languedoc-Roussillon (Montpellier) and the Israel Museum. His works are in the permanent collection of the Musée d’art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme (Paris) and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
