"Celebrated for his approach, which blurs the line between installation and photography, Attie has spent his career moving from one city to the next to explore the trauma and history of the marginalized and to reflect on social memory and the construction of Identity. Seductive, daring, and clever, Facts on the Ground dives into the inherently charged and polarized politics of its subject matter. Attie achieves something profound: he presents a unique opportunity to contemplate Israel/Palestine without the distraction that is simultaneously a manifestation of the limitations of visual of written language and the possibilities of their alliance." June 3, 2016

"…Less familiar work makes the strongest impression, benefiting from the element of surprise. A beautiful 1998 photograph by Shimon Attie of a life-size projection of a male's image on a bed, is one." July 28, 2016

Shimon Attie (born in Los Angeles in 1957) is an American visual artist. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008, The Rome Prize in 2001 and a Visual Artist Fellowship from Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute for Advance Study in 2007. His work spans a variety of media, including photography, site-specific installation, multiple channel immersive video installation, performance, and new media. Much of Attie's practice explores how a wide range of contemporary media may be used to re-imagine new relationships between space, time, place, and identity. Much of Attie's works in the 90s dealt with the history of World War II. He first garnered significant international attention by slide projecting images of past Jewish life onto contemporary locations in Berlin. More recent projects have involved using a range of media to engage local communities to find new ways of representing their history, memory and potential futures. Attie's artworks and interventions are site-specific and immersive in nature, and tend to engage subject matter that is both social, political and psychological. In 2013, five monographs have been published on Attie's work, which has also been the subject of a number of films aired on PBS, BBC, and ARD. Since receiving his MFA in 1991, Attie has realized approximately 25 major projects in ten countries around the world. Most recently, in 2013-14, Shimon Attie was awarded the Lee Krasner Lifetime Achievement Award in Art.

Shimon Attie was born in 1957 and received an MFA in 1991. In 1991, he moved to Germany from his previous home in Northern California, and began to make work initially about Jewish identity and the history of the second World War. His work later evolved to engage broader issues of memory, place and identity more generally. Attie moved to New York City in 1997.


His photographs Almstadtstrasse 43, Berlin (1930) (car parked in front of Hebrew bookstore) (1991) and Mulackstrasse 37, Berlin (1932) (children and tower) (1991) are owned by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Other collections include The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., The Miami Art Museum, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among many others.
