About Artpark

ARTPARK – We Shall Overcome…

A newly installed infotainment and relaxation zone at ARTPARK Galerie Rudolfinum is synchronised with our exhibition of the renowned American film director, cinematographer and artist Arthur Jafa: A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions (featuring Ming Smith; Frida Orupabo and Missylanyus) ARTPARK is open to the public for the duration of the exhibition from 17 March until 31 March 2019.

ARTPARK’s interactive installation and exhibition guide follows a chronological line of various period examples and other content that showcase a brief history of Black music from its past to the present, which again serves as a backdrop of the African-American people for their equal rights, and adds many more dimensions to the viewer’s experience of Arthur Jafa’s exhibition. In his videos, Jafa attempts to create an original version of film visuality – as unique and reflective of the soul of the Black nation as Black music. Black music, after all, plays a major role in Jafa’s video installations. Visitors can also see and interact with the audiovisual installation My Manifesto by Free Cinema collective, or visit a “living room” with a nice sofa and a television set. A star board, where visitors can turn themselves into a showbiz mega star or illustrate one of the traditional Black music hits, will provide an outlet for inspiration and creativity.

ARTPARK, which is relaunched in a new format with every new exhibition, seeks to tell the story of the exhibiting artists to adult and little visitors alike. Associated programming for schools or the public, as well as children’s workshops, are a regular feature. At the same time, ARTPARK is a hub for creative relaxation of Galerie Rudolfinum visitors.
