Michal Novotný: Rich Women Are Beautiful

Michal Novotný: Rich Women Are Beautiful

// Th 6 July 2017 / 7 p.m. / ODD

The lecture will focus on re-materialisation and re-charismation of the work of art that we witnessed in the last decade. Art and corporate examples as much as own curatorial work of the author will illustrate generational disenchantment from neutrality, anti-seduction, immateriality and linguistic meaning, the accentuation of a genre and visual sophistication. In context will be introduced the attitude of non-thematic, mimetic curating as a creation of scenographic, cinematic environments. Some prediction lines of future art and desire production dialectics will be drawn.

Michal Novotný is director of Centre for contemporary art FUTURA in Prague and independent curator and writer. Since 2016 he is also part of the strategic conception team at PLATO Ostrava.
