Michal Rovner – The Space Between
Michal Rovner’s acclaimed work in photography, film, and video probes the boundaries between reality and fiction. From July 11 to October 13, 2002, the Whitney Museum of American Art will present a major mid-career survey that will offer the most comprehensive view to date of Ms. Rovner’s work. The exhibition, Michal Rovner: The Space Between, in the Whitney’s third floor Peter Norton Family Galleries, will contain 70 objects, including 55 photographic works, twelve monoprints, and three video installations, one of which will premiere at the Whitney. A number of pieces have never before been exhibited. The show will draw from collections worldwide, including those of The Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Guggenheim Museum.
In conjunction with this exhibition, the Whitney Museum is producing a 260-page monograph surveying Rovner’s career. It has more than 100 color illustrations, 85 text illustrations, a conversation between Rovner and American painter Leon Golub, and two essays. An essay by Whitney curator Sylvia Wolf will trace the artist’s creative development and place her work in the context of other contemporary art production. Michael Rush, Director of the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art, scholar of video art and a frequent contributor to The New York Times, will discuss Rovner’s video installations.
