The Bob Parks Life-Story Show

Known for his provocative durational performances, British-born artist BOB PARKS is on a lifetime search for the truth.

Ancient cultures, military dictatorships, method acting, gospel music and his own late mother form the heart of his all-encompassing gesamtkunstwerk. Yet it was last yearʼs acclaimed BBC documentary, That R&B Feeling, which propelled the 70-year-old wunderkind BOB PARKS into the limelight.

The Gallery of Everything presents BOB PARKS’ first commercial exhibition in the UK, with paintings, drawings, sculptures and screenings, which draw on is astonishing 40-year practice. The artist will be present throughout, giving performances every Sunday afternoon in the gallery.

“If performance art were a competitive team sport, talent scouts would recognise in the British performance artist, painter and musician BOB PARKS that most lucrative and rare of qualities: natural ability. In his impulsive, unsettling and rapturous work, there is an easy, unaffected pairing of art and everyday life.”
