Jimmy Robert’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses performance, photography and film. His work often explores the politics of spectatorship, reworking canonical and avant-garde performances and hereby challenging their racial and gendered readings. Recent solo exhibitions include Jeu de Paume, Paris (2012); Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, (2012); Power Plant, Toronto, (2013); Museum M, Leuven (2015); La Synagogue De Delme, France (2016); Western Front, Vancouver, and Peer Gallery, London (both in 2017). Robert’s performances have been presented at Tate Britain, London, (2004); MoMA, New York (2014) and Migros Museum, Zurich (2015). Robert’s most recent performance work Imitation of Lives was co-commissioned by Performa17 and the Glass House, and took place in New York in November 2017. Robert lives and works in Berlin.
