Cats, Dogs, and Robert Rauschenberg

GAVU – Great Gallery

19. 4.–20. 6. 2021

Curated by Tomáš Winter

Czech art historians usually associate the painter and graphic artist Jaroslava Pešicová (1935–2015) with the New Figuration tendency. The exhibition presents a selection from the most significant periods of her professional career. Several sculptures illustrate the artist’s cooperation with her husband, sculptor František Štork, whom she met during their studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. The display puts Pešicová’s oeuvre into contrast with that of the celebrated American artist, Robert Rauschenberg, perceived as the pioneer of Post-Modernism. His style most probably never was Pešicová’s direct source of inspiration. However, her creative principles were very similar, such as those based on quoting banal visual models (postcards with cats, dogs, and flowers), working with the medium of collage, and hybrid fusing various fragments. Confronting Pešicová and Rauschenberg opens general considerations about the nature of New Figuration and its relation to Post-Modernism. The latter was in the Czech conditions usually linked with the much later arrival of the generation of the so-called “Confrontations” exhibitions in the 1980s.
