CV Itamar Gilboa

Itamar Gilboa (Tel Aviv, 1973) has always been inspired by the power of numbers and the influence of science. His work, usually taking his own experiences as a starting point, is the result of thorough research and data collection. In order to do so, Gilboa collaborates with scientists, engineers and other artists crossing the boundaries of visual arts and tapping into the fields of science and technology.

Gilboa’s work has been exhibited in various museums and art spaces in Israel, the Nether- lands, The United Kingdom and China. His work is part of both corporate and private collec- tions and is prominently featured in the permanent collection of LAM.
