Rosa Nussbaum Exhibition Opening

April 27, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Born and raised in Europe, Rosa Nussbaum’s Horizonland is informed by her recent years in Texas. Unable to drive and finding herself as a passenger in a car, Nussbaum reflects upon this dependent and passive relationship to consider how public space in Texas is often imagined as a place for mobile private space. The exhibition is structured as a kind of theme park, using sculpture, performance, video and a slideshow to explore how the car becomes a lens that focuses and reshapes the world around her. Like one big refracted eye, the vast expanse of the windshield frames her vision as she is surrounded yet disconnected in this membrane of metal.


Nussbaum’s exhibition, Horizonland, will remain on display at Women & Their Work through June 6.
