Curator, Jane Livingston & the artist, Rachel Rotenberg, will discuss the exhibition “Rachel Rotenbergin a gallery talk scheduled for

This sculptural exhibition will bring a remarkable and original body of largely unknown work to the DMV for the first time ever. Using cedar planks and other materials, Rotenberg has managed to build works on a heroic scale without sacrificing intimacy, and to craft small sculptures that attain a kind of conceptual monumentality.

Rachel Rotenberg spent much of her life in Baltimore while raising five children and partnering with her husband in a small business to support the family. She has lived and worked in Israel since 2015. An artist for over 40 years, she has managed to develop consistently as an inventor of new forms through scattered periods of intense instruction and the encouragement of small grants.

Within a relatively conventional set of materials and methods, Rotenberg has created a deeply original body of work whose language is both eccentric and universal.

This event will be held in-person at the museum. Learn more about the exhibition.
