ULYSSES JENKINS: WITHOUT YOUR INTERPRETATION
11 February – 30 July 2023
The Julia Stoschek Foundation presents the European premiere of Ulysses Jenkins: Without Your Interpretation, the first major retrospective of the work of groundbreaking video and performance artist Ulysses Jenkins (b. 1946 in Los Angeles). A pivotal influence on contemporary art for over fifty years, Jenkins has produced video and media work that conjures vital expressions of how image, sound, and cultural iconography inform representation.
Major support for Ulysses Jenkins: Without Your Interpretation has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, with additional support from Pamela J. Joyner and Alfred J. Giuffrida, and Lyndon J. Barrois and Janine Sherman Barrois. Support for curatorial research has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. The republication of Ulysses Jenkins’s Doggerel Life: Stories of a Los Angeles Griot is made possible with support from the Getty.
