Rosy Keyser lecture

In conjunction with the exhibition Distal’s Musk: Rosy Keyser (more here), presented at the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture from October 31 through December 14, the CADVC presents a lecture by the artist.

Rosy Keyser (born 1974 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a Brooklyn-based, American contemporary painter and sculptor, known for working in large-scale gestural, tactile abstraction. Frequently incorporating found detritus in her work such as beer cans, tarp, and sawdust, Keyser’s work investigates the tensions, instability, and transformations inherent in painting and sculpture. She is represented by CFA, Berlin and Maccarone Gallery in New York. Keyser has exhibited at institutions including Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Zabludowicz Collection, London, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark, and Ballroom Marfa, Texas, and has work in collections of several institutions, including The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark, The Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation, Bloomfield Hills, MI,The Portland Museum of Art, Portland, OR, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN, The Zabludowicz Collection, London, United Kingdom.


Admission to the lecture is free.
