He works across photography, video, and film, and examines specific artifacts such as derelict monuments, historic buildings, found photographs, and borrowed biographies. Evron’s works are often hybrids, combining historical documents with medial inquiries, bringing forward the structures that shape history and the media used for its representation. Evron has exhibited extensively in Israel
and abroad in museums, festivals, biennales and galleries among them are: solo shows at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, the ICA in Richmond, Virginia and LAXART in Los Angeles. He has shown at the New Museum, New York The photography Museum in Antwerp, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and the Biennial of Sydney.
