Yuval Etgar

Yuval Etgar is a Visiting Tutor in History and Theory of Art.

Yuval is a curator and art historian, specialising in the history and theory of collage and image appropriation. He has edited and authored books and exhibition catalogues on the subject, including The Ends of Collage (Luxembourg & Dayan, 2017), an anthology of writings that examines the historical, technical, and material boundaries of this practice, as well as John Stezaker: At the Edge of Pictures (Koenig, 2020), Out of Order: The Collages of Louise Nevelson (Mousse Publishing, 2022), Man Ray: Other Objects (Koenig, 2023), and Vitamin C+. Collage in Contemporary Art (Phaidon Press, 2023). 

Since 2016 Yuval has been affiliated with the London and New York based gallery, Luxembourg + Co. (formerly Luxembourg & Dayan), where he directs the research and exhibitions programme. Since 2019 he is also the Adjunct Curator of the Bauhaus Foundation, Tel Aviv. Yuval is interested in exhibition making as a research methodology which feeds into his scholarly work. He had organised exhibitions dedicated to the work of Man Ray, Louise Nevelson, René Magritte, Fischli and Weiss, and Derrick Adams, among others, as well as group and survey shows on themes such as the history of torn papers (Torn, 2023) or the destruction of other artists’ works as a creative act (Bad Manners, 2022). 

Yuval holds a B.A. in History and Philosophy from the Tel Aviv University, an M.A. in Curating Contemporary Art from the Royal College of Art, London, and a DPhil from the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford.
