Art Studio Visiting Artist Lecture Series
May 6, 2021
Irina Rozovsky captures her contemplative, cinematic photographs from dramatic vantage points and with a deep sense of empathy. Her work highlights people and the surroundings that influence them, ranging from scenes of contemporary Israel to more personal moments with family in her native Russia.
Rozovsky (born 1981, Russia) has exhibited in museums and galleries in the US and abroad. She has published two monographs, One to Nothing (2011) and Island in my Mind (2015). A monograph of her ten year project, In Plain Air, was just published in 2021. Irina’s work is in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Haggerty Museum of Art and is currently featured in MoMA’s New Photography: Companion Pieces. With her husband Mark Steinmetz, she runs The Humid, a photographic project space in Athens, GA.
Organized by the Department of Art and Art History. Co-sponsored by the UC Davis College of Letters and Science and the Manetti Shrem Museum.
