Goethe-Institut Visiting arts practitioner programme: Jimmy Robert

Artspace Aotearoa is pleased to announce our first participant in the Goethe-Institut New Zealand Visiting arts practitioner programme, Jimmy Robert.

Jimmy Robert was born in Guadeloupe but has lived in Berlin for the last decade. He works across a range of media—including photography, sculpture, film, video, and collaborative performance—gently breaking down divisions between two and three dimensions, image and object. He studied at Goldsmiths, London, was a resident at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam and is now a professor at UdK, Berlin and will be with us in Tāmaki Makaurau for two months. His visit culminates with the solo exhibition Joie Noire.
