Tracing Rosenberg's trajectory from early paintings to more recent endeavors in photography, film, sculpture and installation
New York– and Berlin-based artist Aura Rosenberg (born 1949) engages the many ways that images produce and reproduce conditions of everyday life, including notions of spectatorship, gender, normalized bodies, the family, history and legacy. For this reason, although she works in painting, sculpture, installation and performance, she most often deploys photography as her medium of choice.
This catalog is published on the occasion of Rosenberg’s solo exhibitions at the Mishkin Gallery, Baruch College, City University of New York (CUNY) and Pioneer Works. It pairs a selection of works spanning 50 years with 11 texts from notable writers such as director and actress Lena Dunham, curator and critic Robert Nickas, and curator Lumi Tan. This publication offers the first comprehensive overview of Rosenberg's work.
