Contemporary American Art in Prague Rudolfinum

uncertain states of america Rudolfinum Gallery brings a unique possibility for seeing the things that momentarily move the world of art in the United States: Uncertain States of America exhibition

The exhibition is organized in cooperation of Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo. Curators of the exhibition:Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Daniel Birnbaum a Gunnar B. Kvaran.

First shown at The Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo (October 2005), this project comprises a remarkably succinct compilation of recent evolutions in painting, sculptures, video and other artistic forms used by the new generation of American artists.

Uncertain States of America offers an expanded look at a series of major installations by an emerging generation of artists (most of them were born after 1970). Their source material derives not only from today’s media-saturated world, free-form use of new materials, techniques and procedures which permeate each other and are juxtaposed, but also a canny knowledge of new art-historical references and an ability to respond in a complex and sophisticated way with a various extent of personal commitment as well as a certain distance in an age of political and social dissonances.
