Part of the Meeting at a Distance series

Join Terry R. Myers, independent curator, writer, and editor-at-large of the Brooklyn Rail, in conversation with Kay Rosen, a contemporary artist whose paintings investigate the myriad visual possibilities of language and text, generating new meaning from everyday words through shifting visual contexts. Rosen and Myers discuss the working relationship between curator and artist, and dive into Rosen’s studio practice and projects. After the talk, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the discussion.

Los Angeles-based writer and independent curator Terry R. Myers is an editor-at-large of the Brooklyn Rail. His most recent curatorial project was the survey exhibition, Candida Alvarez: Here, at the Chicago Cultural Center. Myers has held faculty positions at institutions including Art Center College of Design, Otis College of Art and Design, Pratt Institute, the Royal College of Art, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was chair of painting and drawing.

Kay Rosen investigates the visual possibilities of language. Rosen’s work has been the subject of articles, reviews, and exhibitions worldwide, including a 1998–99 survey, Kay Rosen: Li[f]eli[k]e at LA MOCA and Otis College of Art Design. She has received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship and three National Endowment for the Arts visual arts grants. Rosen taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for twenty-four years.

Meeting at a Distance presents recurring conversations, started in a time of quarantine. The series features artists from the Mana Contemporary community, connecting with each other to discuss this new time, and how it has shifted their practice, process, and thinking.
