About Artpark

ARTPARK

Galerie Rudolfinum and Artpark are closed due to preparations of the upcoming exhibition. We will open again on 17 January 2019 with the new show of Arthur Jafa, a US artist. The exhibition A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions, lasting until 31 March 2019, is being prepared in partnership with the Serpentine Galleries, London and curated by Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Amira Gad. It will be reflected by a new installation in the Artpark.

In his film work, American artist Arthur Jafa embodies the image of African-American identity and culture through a wide range of contemporary shots and images. Jafa authentically reveals his own identity, consisting both of the artist’s vulnerability and authority, and brings the answer to the question of what it means to be part of the complex terrain of the black representation, and thus the terrain of any other kind. He attempts to rewrite the history of African-American visual aesthetics and thereby contribute to the opening of this theme in the new horizon. The mixture of segments of well-known icons and historical events of African-American culture and anonymous bodies in various emotionally exalted states of enthusiasm and despair brings a synthesizing view of the American history of the life of the African-American community.
