Rosalind Fox Solomon

Rosalind Fox Solomon (b. 1930), an American artist based in New York City, is celebrated for her portraits and for her connection to human suffering, ritual, survival, and struggle.  Fox Solomon's work flows back and forth between the personal and the universal.  Her talent lies in her capacity to interpret and photograph both the social elements of the places she travels to, and the obsessions and anxieties that travel with her.  Her primary medium has been photography.  In the 1980s, she also produced the installations, Adios and Catacombs.  Since the 1990s, she has continued making images.  Additionally, she has performed her own texts and poetry on video.  Bruce Silverstein exhibited her audiovisual installation, Scintillation, in her 2016 solo show "Got to Go", which also featured 30 prints of varied sizes, hung in erratic salon style.  For the past 45 years, Fox Solomon has created challenging bodies of work, shown in nearly 30 solo exhibitions and 100 group exhibitions, and in the collections of over 50 museums worldwide.
