Rose Salane

Working with text, found objects and informal archives, New York based artist Rose Salane re-examines monumental historical events through individual accounts. Creating collaborations across disciplines such as urban planning and sociology, Salane’s work addresses elemental truths rooted within testimonies of those who were witnesses to the time period being examined. By re-signifying individual stories using methods of ethnography and objects that were once present, Salane reveals narratives that are often inaccessible through a macro historical lens. Major solo presentations of her work have included C21OWO, Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College, Annandale-On-Hudson, New York (2021); List Projects: Rose Salane, MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts (2019); and All These Events Are True, But None of Them Happened, Carlos/Ishikawa, London (2018). In 2021, her work was featured in the New Museum Triennial, Soft Water, Hard Stone, New Museum, New York, and in 2022, at the Whitney Biennial, Quiet as It’s Kept, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The artist completed her MA in Urban Planning at The Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, CUNY, and her BFA at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.
