September 16, 2009: Steve Roden

Posted on September 16, 2009 by School of Art

Steve Roden is a visual and sound artist from Los Angeles. His work includes painting, drawing, sculpture, film/video, sound installation, and performance. Roden’s working process uses various forms of specific notation (words, musical scores, maps, etc.) and translates them through self-invented systems into scores, which then influence the process of painting, drawing, sculpture, and sound composition. These scores, rigid in terms of their parameters and rules, are also full of holes for intuitive decisions and left turns. Roden has had numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally at such venues as Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects; Studio La Citta Gallery, Verona, Italy; Mercosur Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum Of Contemporary Art, San Diego; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and Museum Of Contemporary Art, EMST Athens. Roden received his MFA from Art Center College of Design in 1989 and his BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 1986.
