CHRIS BURDEN: THE MASTER BUILDER
Upper Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery
February 14 – June 8, 2014

In this exhibition, the Rose Art Museum presents a near comprehensive account of Burden’s small-scale erector set bridges. Modeled from bridges imagined and actual, Burden’s erector sculptures extend the artist's work as a social engineer, demonstrating his dual commitment to empiric and symbolic inquiry.

ROSE PROJECTS 01A | THE MATTER THAT SURROUNDS US: WOLS AND CHARLINE VON HEYL
Lower Gerald S. and Sandra Fineberg Gallery
February 14 – June 8, 2014

The Matter That Surrounds Us pairs the mid-century German artist Wols, whose delicate, often mysterious small works combine media in unorthodox ways, with new paintings and collage by contemporary artist Charline von Heyl. At once visceral and visual, each one of these works of art is something we’ve never seen before.

ROSE VIDEO 03 | MARIA LASSNIG AND MARY REID KELLEY
Rose Video Gallery
March 26 – June 8, 2014

The third iteration of Rose Video draws a link between the historical animation-based practice of Austrian artist Maria Lassnig and the contemporary videos of Mary Reid Kelley. The pairing explores video's relationship to other media—performance, drawing, and poetry—and reflects on the trajectory of feminist video art.
