We are pleased to announce that the Ann and Ari Rosenblatt Prize Committee has decided to award the 2024 Rosenblatt Prize for Visual Arts to artist Moran Kliger. Especially in these complex and painful times, we see the importance of encouraging and supporting artistic creation.

The prize, valued at a total of ₪40,000, includes a solo exhibition in the main hall of the Artists House in Tel Aviv, curated by Nir Harmat.

The prize committee members: Dr. Galia Bar Or, Dr. Kobi Ben-Meir, Dalit Matityahu, Arie Berkowitz, Nir Harmat, Ann and Ari Rosenblatt.

Moran Kliger's works explore the transitions between nature and culture, highlighting the interplay between the wild and the domesticated.
She disrupts and disturbs mythologies and early patterns of knowledge that we are used to encounter in cultural representations and offers an alternative iconography that serves as an analogy to social and political issues.

Kliger's body of work is mostly based on figurative drawing, consisting of series in various techniques: engraving on colored paper, etching on wood, ink drawing on paper, silk screen printing, digital printing, and more. 
Her works typically span a large format and consist of thin lines that accumulate momentum and emotional power precisely from the seemingly thin, graphic line. 
At times, the drawings themselves serve as installations within the exhibition space.

Through labor-intensive drawing techniques, she aims to capture the viewers' attention, causing them to pause in front of the work and enter the "world" she offers, a world that is unfamiliar yet disturbingly similar to our own. 
She weaves narratives related to the concepts of family, home, landscape, and the human condition.

Moran Kliger lives and works in Tel Aviv. She graduated with honors from the Bachelor of Arts program in Design and Art at Shenkar, College of Engineering and Design (2007), and the Master's program at the Art School at Beit Berl College (2013).

Kliger's works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad: at the Jewish Museum in Cape Town, South Africa (2024), at the Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv (2023), at the Petah Tikva Museum of Art (2022), at Noga Gallery, Tel Aviv (2020), at the KYOCERA Museum of Art, Kyoto, Japan (2019), at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2018), at Basis Gallery, Herzliya (2018), at the OpenArt Biennale, Örebro, Sweden (2017), and more.

In April 2015, Kliger won a full scholarship from the Fountainhead Residency Program in Miami, Florida, USA. In 2017, she won the Mifal HaPais Prize, and in May 2018, she participated in the artist residency program at the International Artists' Center La Cité in Paris, France. In 2019, she won first place in the drawing category at the international competition of the Krasnodar Regional Art Museum, Krasnodar, Russia, and in 2021, she won the Mifal HaPais Incubator Prize. Her works are found in the collection of the Tel Aviv Museum, the collection of the Krasnodar Regional Art Museum, Russia, the Dubi Shiff Art Collection, the Art Partners (Gil Brandes) collection, and other collections in Israel and abroad.
