About Rachel Rose

Rose, born in 1986, is an American visual artist known for her video installations. Her work explores how our changing relationship to landscape has shaped storytelling and belief systems. She draws from, and contributes to, a long history of cinematic innovation, and through her subjects—whether investigating cryogenics, the American Revolutionary War, modernist architecture, or the sensory experience of walking in outer space—she questions what it is that makes us human and the ways we seek to alter and escape that designation.

Rose earned a double BA in humanities and art from Yale University and an MFA from Columbia University. Her recent projects include Enclosure (2019), jointly commissioned by the Park Avenue Armory in New York and LUMA Foundation in Arles, and Palisades (2015), presented at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London, among many others. Rose won the illy Present Future Prize at the Turin-based art fair Artissima in 2014 and the Frieze Artist Award for site-specific installations by emerging artists at the London fair in 2015. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the world.

This program is presented through the generosity of the Terry F. Green 1969 Fund for British Art and Culture.
