H.M.Klosterfelde Edition Berlin

With UH OH NO AH HA, H.M. Klosterfelde Edition is presenting a series of newly printed editions by American artist Kay Rosen. The new editions will be accompanied by a selection of drawings, collages and a painting by the artist. Working with words and language, Rosen comments and emphasizes recent and ever present issues of our societies: ever witty, political, subtle but never quiet.

Trained in languages and linguistics, Kay Rosen realized in the 1970’s that what interested her most about language had to be expressed visually, so she left academia and started over from square one as a “self-taught” artist. Drawing on her linguistic background, she began an exploration of the intersection of meaning and structure in language through color, materials, scale, composition, typography, and graphic design. Her investigation into alternative functions of language continues until today.

Kay Rosen’s paintings, drawings, editions, collages, installations, and videos have been presented in solo and group exhibitions in galleries, museums and institutions, nationally and internationally, for four decades, among them the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; The Art Institute of Chicago; the Whitney Biennial 2000 and 1991 (as part of Group Material’s “AIDS Timeline”); Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Germany; Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein; Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam; and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (L.A. MoCA), which hosted her mid-career survey exhibition in 1998-1999. Recent solo exhibitions include The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT, USA, and Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in New York, USA. An upcoming solo show will be taking place at Barbara Krakow Gallery, Boston, USA.

Rosen’s work resides in collections in Europe and America, it has been featured in numerous publications, such as Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times; and it has earned many honors. Rosen taught at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago for more than twenty years. More can be learned about her at www.kayrosen.com.
