Enjoy a complimentary cup of La Colombe coffee and join Penn History of Art PhD and PennDesign MFA candidates for an intimate conversation inspired by the ICA exhibitions on view.
Lydia Rosenberg, Penn Design MFA candidate, leads a conversation centered around the question, “Can reading be a form of breaking and entering?” Prompted by the ICA exhibitions Burn The Diaries by Moyra Davey and Readykeulous by Ridykeulous: This is What Liberation Feels Like, the discussion will focus on how the artists act as authors, readers, and correspondents. In both exhibitions, the viewers are placed in a role that challenges us to think about the private activity of reading and to use texts and images as a way of entering into a larger public correspondence.
Lydia Rosenberg is a second year MFA candidate in Interdisciplinary Art at the University of Pennsylvania. Rosenberg has been included in several group and solo exhibitions throughout the US. She is the co-founder of H. Klum Fine Art, formerly an exhibition space in a oneroom apartment in Portland, OR. A writer and an artist, she has recently published works with Amur Initiatives and Eights, and was awarded a fellowship as artist-in-residence at the Vermont Studio Center.
