In her work, Bunny Rogers draws from a personal cosmology to explore universal experiences of loss, alienation, and a search for belonging. Her layered installations, videos, and sculptures begin with wide-ranging yet highly specific references, from young-adult fiction and early 2000s cartoons, like Clone High, to autobiographical events and violent media spectacles, such as the 1999 Columbine High School shooting. Rogers’s techniques are equally idiosyncratic. She borrows from theater costuming, design, and industrial furniture manufacturing, and often crafts her work by hand. This hybrid approach gives Rogers’s objects and spaces a distinct texture; they read simultaneously as slick and intimate, highly constructed but also sincere.

For her first museum solo show in the United States, Rogers will create a new body of work. The exhibition will be on view in the John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation Gallery on the Museum’s first floor, which is free and open to the public.

This exhibition is organized by assistant curator Elisabeth Sherman and curatorial assistant Margaret Kross.

Major support for Bunny Rogers is provided by John R. Eckel, Jr. Foundation.

Generous support is provided by Jackson Tang.
