Grada Kilomba: Opera to a Black Venus, 21 Jun 2024 — 20 Oct 2024

Grada Kilomba: Opera to a Black Venus

Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden

The first comprehensive institutional solo exhibition in Germany of the internationally renowned artist, author and thinker Grada Kilomba, shows her unique practice of storytelling, which interrogates concepts of violence and repetition – using performance, choreography, video, large scale sculptural and sonic installations.

Her work has been described as a new postcolonial minimalism, in which form, image and movement blurs the boundaries between disciplines. The staging of her works unfolds the title of the exhibition, Opera to a Black Venus; makes reference to the Black history of resilience and resistance, and is dedicated to the entanglement between ecological collapse and colonial injustice.

At the heart of the exhibition is the new commission Opera to a Black Venus (2024), a large scale video installation and Labyrinth (2024), a site specific spatial installation, both presented for the first time to the public, at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.
