About Gilad Ratman

Gilad Ratman (b. 1975, Israel) lives and works in New York and Tel Aviv. As a multidisciplinary artist, his work consists of site-specific installations that engage with social and community structures. His videos and installations push narrative to its limits, allowing for a fractured chain of events to take place and functioning as a vehicle for exploring the tension between the real and imaginary. Nature plays a significant role in Ratman’s work, serving as the backdrop for human interaction. His video and installation works include Give Her Back or Take Me Too (2004), Che Che the Gorgeous (2005), Alligatoriver (2006), The 588 Project (2009), Multipillory (2010), and The Days of the Family of the Bell (2012).

Ratman studied at the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem; the School of Visual Arts, New York; and received an M.F.A. from Columbia University School of the Arts, New York. His work has been included in dozens of group and solo exhibitions internationally, including MoMA/P.S.1, New York; the Museum of New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Museum Beelden Aan Zee, Haag; the Herzliya Museum of Art; The Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv; and the Video Art Festival, Beijing. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including the Isracard prize from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2007), the Ministry of Culture Young Artist Prize (2006), and the Joshua Rabinovich Fund for the Arts (2004).
