Tamar Garb, in discussion with Adrian Rifkin, will think through the varieties and styles of Rosen’s work and examine the specific place of the Roee Rosen: Vile, Evil Veil exhibition in his oeuvre. She will consider modes of address, masquerade, the juxtapositions of painting and video, writing and comedy, theology and pornography.
Roee Rosen lives and works in Israel. He currently heads the post graduate visual arts program at HaMidrasha College of Art, and teaches at the Bezalel Art Academy, Jerusalem. Roee Rosen: Vile, Evil Veil is his first UK solo exhibition, including two works which explore the dynamic of power and pleasure, and negotiate fictional personas and cultural politics.
Tamar Garb is Durning Lawrence Professor in the History of Art, UCL. Her research interests have focused on questions of gender and sexuality; the woman artist and the body in nineteenth and early twentieth century French art; feminist politics in the context of global and international developments in theory and practice; and questions of gender and sexuality in historic and contemporary areas.
Adrian Rifkin is professor of art writing at Goldsmiths, University of London.
