Larry Abramson - born in South Africa - presented numerous exhibitions worldwide, including, among others, in the Baretta Urdang Gallery in New York (1978/1980), the Biennale in Venice (1986), Israel Museum (1989), Tel Aviv Museum of Art (1993) and the Magnes Museum in Berkley (2006).

The works of Abramson, who has been creating since the 1970s, are frequently challenged by art history and theory, yet maintain contemporary expression and the characteristics of the time. During the past 25 years, he took part in various exhibitions and projects for an equal co-existence between Israeli and Palestinians and was even one of the founders of “Artists without Walls” – a joint group of Israeli and Palestinian artists against the occupation.

Throughout the years, Abramson won numerous awards, including the Beatrice S. Kolliner Award for a Young Israeli Artist (Israel Museum, 1979), Jacques Ohana Prize (Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 1991), The Minister of Education and Culture Prize (1998) and Mendel and Eva Pundik Prize for Israeli Art (Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 2007).
