The Color Out of Space
The work of Rosa Barba (born 1972), encompassing sculpture, installation, text-based wall works, and publications, probes the precarious relationships between historical record, personal anecdote, and fictional narrative. The Color Out of Space takes as its point of departure a film that expands into outer space the artist’s ongoing interrogation of geologic time as measured against the span of a human lifetime. This publication was published in conjunction with the MIT List Visual Art Center’s 2015 exhibition Rosa Barba: The Color Out of Space and features essays by Victoria Brooks, Henriette Huldisch, and Gloria Sutton. It was edited by Henriette Huldisch, Karen Kelly, and Barbara Schroeder; design by Filiep Tacq.
