Rockford Art Museum is proud to host New Genres Art Space presenting Jonah King: How The West Was Won and Veronica Soria Martinez: Memory Access. This exhibition and it’s related educational programming are sponsored by Lisa and Mark Lindman. Exhibition-related materials are supported in-part by a grant from Rockford Area Arts Council.
Jonah King: How The West Was Won
From sandcastles and relic-like sculptures to an immersive three-channel video, Jonah King’s exhibition, How the West Was Won, reveals unique relationships among geologic time, colonialism, climate change, and golf. Born in Ireland, Brooklyn based artist, filmmaker, and writer Jonah King explores technology, intimacy and collectivity. King’s work focuses on areas of scientific research that have the power to destabilize dominant cultural beliefs.
Verónica Soria Martinez: Memory Access
By mixing augmented reality, video projections, and sound, Veronica Soria Martinez’s exhibition Memory Access invites visitors into a multi-sensory space that investigates a speculative future through fictional relics. Born in Spain, Rockford-based artist Verónica Soria Martinez focuses on visual culture and sonic arts. She holds PhD and Masters degree in Visual Arts and Intermedia from Polytechnic University in Valencia, Spain and teaches CAPA art at West Middle School.
