The exhibition, "Steve Roden: when words become forms," consists of new paintings and a new large scale installation created specifically for the Pomona College Museum of Art. Elements of the installation will include large-scale sculptural forms, sound compositions, and hand drawn film/video projections. For almost twenty years, Steve Roden, who works in Pasadena, has been creating drawings, paintings, sculpture, film, and sound works that combine a sensuous materiality with intellectual rigor. The artist’s creative process reflects a handmade aesthetic realized through a painstaking methodology that indicates artistic influences as diverse as Folk and Outsider art, and Conceptual and Fluxus projects. Roden’s new project will combine these interests and expand them into a site-specific large-scale installation and performative event that will work closely with the Pomona College community in its inception and realization. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue that documents the process and project and by a series of public events (including performances, workshops, and lectures).
