Chris Ofili - Exhibition Guide - Serpentine

Exhibition guide relating to an exhibition, 1998

Unpaginated.

A5 3 panel fold out sheet/printed on semi gloss paper, monochrome text, double sided/produced by the gallery to accompany an exhibition

Title: Chris Ofili | Serpentine gallery, exhibition guide, 20p
Text author: Maria Walsh © Maria Walsh and the Serpentine Gallery

Text functions as an overview to the works within the exhibition and some of the themes/ideas behind his paintings and its relation to post-modernism and post-colonial theory. From the text: “Ofili has said that he can make versions of other people’s art works but charge them with his own agenda. One could see this borrowing of styles and images as being truly Postmodern. However, in Ofili’s case this appropriation and recoding of work by other artists has to be seen in the context of another of his major influences: the approach to music and images in the American cultural form of hip hop.”

Short profile of the artist, Chris Ofili at the time of his solo exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in 1998. Profile briefly describes this phase of development in his painting practice and lists some of the artists and themes that have influenced his work. From the article: “Although Ofili has continued to celebrate pattern and decoration in his art, over the past two years, he has gradually introduced into his paintings images drawn from the incongruous worlds of art history, comic strips, pornography, sport and music. In Ofili’s world, kitsch hangs out with sophistication, beauty plays with ugliness and the sacred clashes with the profane. His work swallows whole a diverse range of styles and influences: William Blake, Jean-Michael Basquiat, West African textiles, Matopos cave painting as well as Mohammad Ali, hip hop diva Lil’ Kim, Blaxploitation films and the sexual underworld of Kings Cross.”

Barclays Young Artist Award 1992

Catalogue relating to an exhibition, 1992
Published by: Serpentine Gallery
Year published: 1992
ISBN: 1 870814 41 X
Unpaginated.

image of Barclays Young Artist Award 1992

Small, but hugely significant unpaginated catalogue for an important group exhibition in London, that included the work of then-recent art school graduate, Yinka Shonibare. This was one of the first exhibitions in which Shonibare made use of his now-trademark faux African-fabric. Following two years of postgraduate study at Goldsmiths College, Yinka Shonibare was included in the prestigious Barclays Young Artist Award 1992, held at the Serpentine Gallery in London. This was the eighth year of the annual exhibition of London art school postgraduates shortlisted for this award. Along with Shonibare, the other shortlisted artists were: Richard Ducker, Janice Howard, Andrew Kearney, Gabriel Klasmer, Joanna Lawrance, Lisa Richardson, Stefan Shankland, and Mari Tachikawa. Though five of these artists were apparently “not British in terms of birthplace or ethnicity,” Elsbeth Court (who reviewed the exhibition for African arts magazine) also claimed that Shonibare was “the first non-European selected to be a finalist.” The significance of Shonibare’s inclusion in the exhibition cannot easily be overstated. More than a decade and a half after the Barclays Young Artist Award 1992, Shonibare was asked, in an interview for the Guardian to describe what his big breakthrough was. He replied: “Winning a Barclays Young Artist award in 1992. It got me noticed.”

The catalogue featured brief biographical notes on each of the artists, plus several pages of small monochromatic reproductions of the artists’ work. The catalogue also featured a short introduction to the exhibition by Mel Gooding, on behalf of the judging committee, which consisted of Mel Gooding, John McEwen, and Bruce McLean, in consultation with Julia Peyton-Jones, who organised the exhibition.

Big City: Artists from Africa

Group show at Serpentine Gallery. 1995
Date: 21 September, 1995 until 5 November, 1995
Curator: Julia Peyton-Jones and André Magnin:
Organiser: Serpentine Gallery

From the preface to the Big City: Artists from Africa catalogue:

“The Serpentine is proud to present Big City: Artists from Africa as part of africa 95. The exhibition brings together six contemporary artists, who make compelling objects and images encompassing a diversity of cultural references, from Mali to the Northern Transvaal. The artists use a range of media; painting, sculpture, photography and installation. Georges Adéagbo has travelled to England to create an installation comprising elements transported from Benin in conjunction with objects he has found in London. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré is represented by over 200 small-scale coloured drawings from the ongoing series Conaissance du Monde, incorporating Alphabet Bété (first version) which has never been exhibited. Body Isek Kingelez’s architectural models embody his utopian vision of future urban environments. Seydou Keïta’s evocative black and white photographs from the 1950s and ‘60s vividly record the life of the community in which he lived. Johannes Mashego Segogela’s wooden tableaux warn us of the repercussions of violence and social injustice. Cyprien Tokoudagba has travelled to London to make a work directly on to the walls of the Serpentine Gallery, exploring the imagery he paints in the temples of Benin.”
