Rose Salane (b 1992, Queens, New York) studies significant social and cultural moments—events that create shifts in how we see the world and whose impact transcends generation and demographic. In objects, images, and text, she magnifies the details associated with these historic turns as a means of uncovering the intimate and personal stories that are often lost in the larger historical narrative. Much of Salane’s current research considers life in the urban environment, specifically within New York City, and how memory functions in relation to institutional systems. As such, her perspective is one that savors the overlooked and subtle in the face of spectacle.
Rose Salane has recently exhibited at Company Gallery, NY; Carlos/Ishikawa, London, UK; Francesca Pia, Zurich, Switzerland; and Swiss Institute, Rome, Italy. Salane attended the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, NY and is currently enrolled at the Bernard & Anne Spitzer School of Architecture at City College of New York, CUNY. This will be her first solo exhibition at an institution.
