Experiments in Sonic Potential
Musicians from the Bay Area’s rich improvisational / jazz scene perform live music in conversation with Annabeth Rosen’s ceramic sculptures. Annabeth Rosen: Fired, Broken, Gathered, Heaped is the first major survey of Annabeth Rosen (b. 1957 Brooklyn, NY), Robert Arneson Chair at UC Davis, and 2018 Guggenheim Fellow. For over two decades, Rosen has interrogated the medium of ceramics in the context of contemporary art. Featuring ceramics and works on paper from over twenty years, this groundbreaking exhibition examines how Rosen’s work radically defies the limits of her primary medium, pushing it beyond spectacle and into conversations about contemporary painting, feminist theory, endurance-based performance, and conceptual art. Experiments in Sonic Potential was developed in partnership with the Center for New Music.
