Amikam Toren was born in Israel in 1945. He lives and works in London.
Toren is a significant figure in British conceptual art, who explores the conceptual and material framework that defines art. Since the 1970s, Toren has been producing artworks that look at the relation between form and content, object and representation, and between the languages of sculpture and painting.
Toren is a London-based artist who in his 41-year career has exhibited extensively throughout Europe. Toren held his first public exhibition in London at the ICA in 1974. That exhibition was the first of many that have had a profound influence on generations of artists in the UK. He had solo exhibitions in many of the major national venues including: Serpentine Gallery, London, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, Chisenhale Gallery, London, Arnolfini Gallery, Bristol, ICA, London, MOT International, Brüssels, Matt’s Gallery, London.
His work has been featured in the Venice Biennale, Guangzhou Biennale, and in Whitechapel Gallery, London as well as Museu do Acude, Rio de Janeiro, Neuberger Museum of Art, New York, de Appel, Amsterdam, Museu do Chiado, Lisbon, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (to mention a few).
