Ali Tnani

Born in 1982 in Tunis, Ali Tnani is a Tunisian contemporary artist based in Tunis and Paris. He received his Masters in 2007 from the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-arts of Tunis and has since exhibited widely and participated in international residency programs. A leading practitioner in the field of conceptual art, Tnani is known for his multimedia installation work examining social issues in post-revolutionary Tunisia. With a practice that draws on installation, drawing, and photography, he explores the question of erasure and the negative in narratives of traces, memory and history in an era of hyper-connectivity.  He has participated in various solo and group exhibitions internationally, including the 13th Biennial of Dakar, Château d’Oiron (France), the 5th Marrakech Biennial, the Musée de Carthage and the Musée du Bardo in Tunis, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Mons (Belgium) and the Nanterre art space (France).
