Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped is the artist’s first major survey and chronicles over 20 years of her work in ceramics. The exhibition will also feature works on paper that mirror the trajectory of her works created in clay. For over two decades, Annabeth Rosen (Ceramics ’81) has demonstrably delved into the place of craft in the contemporary art landscape. Formally trained in ceramics, Rosen has expanded her practice from the functional and decorative into expansive conceptual installations that meld materiality and process. Her diminutive and occasionally monumental works are composed through laborious and obsessive additive processes that push the medium beyond spectacle and into dialogues about endurance, labor, and feminist thought, as well as nature, destruction, and regeneration. The exhibition is opening on August 19 – November 26, 2017.

Alumna Annabeth Rosen (Ceramics ’81) is featured in Art in America. Her exhibition at PPOW is titled Tie Me to the Mast. Each piece is a collection of many ceramic objects: tubes and gourds and balls and blobs, all piled up on a wheeled dolly and whipped together with wire. These six-foot-high towers are imposing, yet hilarious in their pendulous anthropomorphism. She began making them in 2010 and 2011.
P·P·O·W in New York presents Tie Me to the Mast, a solo exhibition by Annabeth Rosen (Ceramics ’81). Rosen’s work explores the fundamental properties of ceramics by directly confronting the aesthetic and chemical relationships between sculptural form and painterly surface.
