Neïl Beloufa

Born in 1985 in Paris (France), NEÏL BELOUFA lives and works in Paris (France). The French-Algerian artist has spent the better part of the last decade thinking about what is at stake when one apprehends reality and its representation. His practice spans film, sculpture, and installation, and draws on his interest in what actually exists and how it is interpreted, a subject he explores without moral judgment, cultural cynicism or any kind of irony - though sometimes with humour. Kamel Mennour and Neïl Beloufa have been working together since 2018.

He was nominated for the Prix Marcel Duchamp in 2015, the Artes Mundi (Cardiff, United Kingdom) and Nam June Paik (Essen, Germany) prizes in 2016. He was awarded the Meurice Prize for Contemporary Art 2013, Audi Talent Awards 2011 and the Agnès B. Studio Collector Award 2010.

His work has been the subject of monographic exhibitions in France and abroad, notably at K11, Shanghai, 2016; Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2016; Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin, 2015; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, 2014; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2013; Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2012 and 2018 as well as the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, 2018.
Neïl Beloufa also took part in the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Shanghai in 2014, the 55th International Contemporary Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2013, the Biennial of Contemporary Art in Lyon in 2013 and the 58th International Contemporary Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2019.
His work is present in numerous prestigious collections including the collection of the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Sammlung Goetz, Munich; and Julia Stoschek Collection, Dusseldorf & Berlin.
