Rochelle Feinstein’s forthcoming retrospective, In Anticipation of Women’s History Month, will open at Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève on January 28, 2016.

Organised in collaboration with Lenbachhaus, Munich; Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover and the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, the exhibition will be the first comprehensive retrospective of the last 25 years of the artist’s production. On this occasion, the four institutions collaborate to publish a reference monograph.

Possessing an extensive painting lexicon, Feinstein employs an array of media from silkscreen, to photography and assemblage, to abstract, expressive painting. These combined material processes are applied to an appropriative practice that cross-references the mythologies of art history and popular culture. Sourcing and reconstituting found visual material, Feinstein includes text, personal photography and even self-cannibalises past work. At once a social commentary and autobiographical, her works stands as biting satire of her role as an artist working in the arena that is painting in America today.

Rochelle Feinstein was born in 1947 in New York where she lives and works.

In Anticipation of Women’s History Month is curated by Fabrice Stroun and Tenzing Barshee for the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève.
