Art Zimbabwe

Online Viewing Room

Art Zimbabwe by Richard Parry

“Art Zimbabwe is an expanded approach to mail art and contemporary art processes having mainly to do with structural purposes of a particular 'native information'. It is the study of a particular landscape without any outside influence."
-Richard Parry

Richard Parry sits down in the Astrup Fearnley Museum with Ida Sannes Hansen to discuss the Art Zimbabwe collaboration, his influences, and the history of his work. Highlighting Parry’s multidimensional approach to art making, this online event features artworks from pivotal moments in his trajectory, alongside a range of cultural influences that have shaped his practice over time.

“Am I the only one around here that finds deliberate manipulation of culture by a nation state that routinely champions the so-called wisdom of the invisible market hand to be very not OK?”
