Ocula ReportViewpoint: Arthur Jafa at Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin17 May 2018 : Federica Bueti for Ocula{{document.location.href}}
Arthur Jafa is a brilliant filmmaker, cinematographer and artist, whose practice is concerned with identifying and developing a specifically Black visual aesthetic. His work tackles the complexity of African-American cultural identity, as defined by an existential paradox that places the Black subject 'in essential intimacy with death', as Saidiya...

Ocula ConversationAnya GallaccioArtist, United Kingdom{{document.location.href}}
Anya Gallaccio's practice is characterised by the twin notions of control and transition and, in particular, how each can be implemented and represented.

Ocula ReportIn Focus: Seeking Sanyu11 May 2018 : Stephanie Bailey for Ocula{{document.location.href}}
Sanyu's Still Life of Flowering and Fruit Plant with a Green Ground, an oil on masonite panel dated between 1950 and 1965, presents a plant brimming with aspirations of wealth, or in the artist's case, memories of it.

Roberto Cuoghi (b. 1973, Modena, Italy) is a multimedia artist working in painting, sculpture, digital animation, drawing, and sound.  He is perhaps best known for his dramatic life choice, at age 24, where he physically altered his appearance to become a well-respected man in his sixties. That decision laid the groundwork for many of his works that explore issues surrounding transformation, time, memory, identity, and death.  One of his most recent works, Šuillakku—corral version, 2014, a large-scale sound installation that creates a hybrid between the music of non-Western and Western cultures and is inspired by the ancient Assyrian empire, was the subject of an exhibition at the New Museum in the spring 2014. Cuoghi's solo exhibition, da iḍā e piṅgalā a iḍā e iḍā o piṅgalā e piṅgalā, will be on view at Le Consortium, Dijon, France (October 17, 2014 - January 11, 2015) and the Aspen Art Museum (February 13 - May 16, 2015).

Solo exhibitions were held at the New Museum, New York, NY, 2014; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2011; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, 2008.  His work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions at important venues worldwide, such as Collection Sandretto Re Rebaudengo: Have you seen me before?, Whitechapel Gallery, London, 2013; The Encyclopedic Palace, the 55th Venice Biennale, (2013); The Residue of Memory, Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, CO, 2012; 10000 Lives, Gwangju Biennale, Korea (2010); Skin Fruit, New Museum, New York, 2010; Fare Mondi/Making Worlds, 53rd Venice Biennale, (2009); Fractured Figure, Deste Foundation Centre for Contemporary Art, Athens, 2007; Sequence 1, Palazzo Grassi, Venice, Italy, 2007; and Of Mice and Men, 4th Berlin Biennial for Contemporary Art (2006).

The artist lives and works in Milan.
