Steven Rose: For/While (2020.01)

March 14 - June 14, 2020

Inspired by an experience in 2011 with a 5.8 magnitude earthquake, Steven Rose creates an immersive environment reflecting the beauty of syncopated movement. It is at once both kinetic and meditative. 

Rose writes of the earthquake, “Around me I felt the concrete turn gelatinous for a few seconds and then abruptly stop. Alarms sounded but I could not move. I sat transfixed by the sight above me…” Museum goers will have the opportunity to experience the artist’s interpretation of the surprising sight that he witnessed on that day, which he describes as a “sublime folding of chaos into order.”
