Martha Rosler
Multidisciplinary Artist
Brooklyn, NY
2008 USA Fellow

This award was generously supported by Leonard and Susan Nimoy.

Martha Rosler is a pioneering feminist artist who creates videos, photocollages, installations, and performances that confront social issues. Her work deals with everyday lifeā€”from the domestic realm in her landmark feminist video Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975), in which a woman wields various utensils as weapons expressing her frustrations, to the streets in more recent works that deal with transportation and homelessness. Rosler has also published 10 books on art and culture in the public sphere.
