NEW YORK, NY.- Sperone Westwater
announced its representation of American artist Rochelle Feinstein.
Born in 1947, Rochelle Feinstein is a longstanding and deeply respected member of the New York art community. Her work navigates the charged terrain of modernist painting with wry humor and sharp intelligence, unfolding across diverse and thematically interwoven bodies of work which incorporate painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, and installation. In its social and autobiographical reference and attention to language and contemporary culture, Feinsteins work raises trenchant questions about authorship and the role of the artist as public and private figure.
A major survey exhibition of Feinsteins work originated at the Centre dArt Contemporain, Geneva (2016), and subsequently traveled to Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich (2016), Kestnergesellschaft, Hanover (2017), and the Bronx Museum of the Arts (2018-2019). Other solo exhibitions have taken place at Kunsthaus Baselland (2018) and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University (2012). Her work has been featured in the Whitney Biennial (2014) and in exhibitions at such venues as the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (2015); the American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York (2012); the Blanton Museum of Art, Austin (2010); and PS1, New York (2004).
Feinstein is Professor Emerita of Painting and Printmaking at Yale University (2017). Among her numerous accolades, she is a recent recipient of the prestigious Rome Prize Jules Guerin Fellowship in Visual Arts, American Academy in Rome (2017-2018). Her work is in museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich; the Perez Art Museum, Miami; and the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum.
Feinsteins work will be featured in the gallerys presentation at Art Basel (13-16 June, booth A15) and her first exhibition with the gallery is planned for 2020.
