Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped

Arts & TheaterJul 25, 2019-Jan 19, 2020; Fri-Tue 11am-5pm; Thur 11am-8pm; closed Wed The Contemporary Jewish Museum presents the first major museum survey of the work of Northern California sculptor Annabeth Rosen, a pioneer in the field of contemporary ceramics. "Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped" covers over twenty years of the artist's work, revealing both the variations and consistencies found within her ongoing explorations of form and process. The exhibition features over 120 of Rosen's most influential and dynamic works, never before exhibited on the West Coast. Included are both early and recent ceramic sculptures that range from the diminutive to the monumental, as well as large-scale works on paper that mirror the trajectory of her sculptural practice.

Formally trained in ceramics, yet heavily influenced by painterly gesture, Rosen has expanded her practice to include conceptually-driven sculptural forms. Drawing from the ethos that everything broken can always be fixed or re-used, the artist embraces the impulse to rescue or resurrect broken ceramic fragments. Rosen sees both her studio and the kiln as spaces of invention, where process and chance are equally essential elements in the formation of her art objects.

"Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped" comes to The Museum for its final and exclusive West Coast showing from Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, where it debuted in 2017. The exhibition was curated by CAMH former Senior Curator Valerie Cassel Oliver now the Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The CJM's presentation is organized by Heidi Rabben, Senior Curator.
