Visiting photographer | Em Rooney
The Photography department welcomes Gary Metz lecturer Em Rooney, who lives and works in Massachusetts. She has written for Art Papers and Performa Magazine, and her current project approaches the idea of gift giving in editions of two. Her recent sculptural objects hold a copy of a gift made twice, once for a loved one and once—cast from the same mold—for the viewer. She has exhibited her work at François Ghebaly, Gallery Crèvecoeur, Bodega, The Museum of Modern Art and Columbus College of Art and Design, among others, and her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Frieze, Artforum, Art in America, Aperture Magazine, i-D etmand Artnews.
