Annabeth Rosen in Conversation at Contemporary Jewish Museum
On Jan. 17 in conjunction with her solo exhibition, “Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, Rosen, professor of art and art chair, will present “You can only go to a new place once,” exploring the contemporary art world’s rising focus on ceramics.
Following the presentation, Michelle Millar Fisher of the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Boston, will join Rosen in conversation. The event begins at 12:30 p.m. and is free with museum admission fee.
Running through Jan. 19, “Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped is the first major survey of Rosen (b. 1957 Brooklyn, NY), Robert Arneson Chair at UC Davis, and 2018 Guggenheim Fellow.
For over two decades, Rosen has interrogated the medium of ceramics in the context of contemporary art. Featuring ceramics and works on paper from over twenty years, this groundbreaking exhibition examines how Rosen’s work radically defies the limits of her primary medium, pushing it beyond spectacle and into conversations about contemporary painting, feminist theory, endurance-based performance, and conceptual art.
