The 58th International Art Exhibition
in order to watch the videos of Global Agreement (2018-2019), on view at the Arsenale, the viewer has to sit on structures reminiscent of gym equipment, that are uncomfortable and restrict their movements; simultaneously, the configuration of the space means that each viewer can observe everyone else observing others: you may be watching the video, but someone is always watching you.

The 58th International Art Exhibition, titled May You Live In Interesting Times, will take place from 11 May to 24 November 2019 (Pre-opening on 8, 9, 10 May). The title is a phrase of English invention that has long been mistakenly cited as an ancient Chinese curse that invokes periods of uncertainty, crisis and turmoil; "interesting times", exactly as the ones we live in today.

The 58th Exhibition is curated by Ralph Rugoff, currently the director of the Hayward Gallery in London. Between 1985 and 2002 he wrote art and cultural criticism for numerous periodicals, publishing widely in art magazines as well as newspapers, and published a collection of essays, Circus Americanus (1995). During the same period he began working as an independent curator.

Frida Orupabo’s central concern is the depiction of the black female body, especially as it relates to the circulation of images in media culture. She combines found photographs and images from her personal archive to create digital collages that explore themes of race, gender, identity, sexuality, the gaze, and colonial violence. Orupabo – who is a self-taught artist and trained sociologist – originally began uploading and streaming her collages on social media platforms as a means of obtaining source material and intervening in the endless cycle of images that construct the black female body produced by art history, colonialism, science, and popular culture.
