Focus at Infinity
09 November 2017 - 15 April 2018
'Rosemarie Castoro. Focus at Infinity' 2017 exhibition view from MACBA
Rosemarie Castoro. Focus at Infinity is the first major institutional exhibition of Castoro’s work, and concentrated on the years 1964–79. Castoro (1939–2015) established her career in the context of Minimalism and Conceptualism in the U.S., circulating at the heart of the avant-garde in New York. The exhibition shows her work in detail for the first time, revealing the diversity of her practice, which encompassed abstract painting, conceptual works, performative actions in the street and studio, poetry, mail art, sculpture, installation and land art. It explores the context of her work, her activism including her role in the Art Workers’ Coalition, her association with contemporaries such as Carl Andre, Hollis Frampton, Sol LeWitt and Yvonne Rainer among others, and her relation to feminism.

Rosemarie Castoro. Focus at Infinity
Rosemarie Castoro. Focus at Infinity is the catalogue of the first major institutional exhibition of the New York artist Rosemarie Castoro (1939-2015) focused on the period 1964-79. The publication draws together an extensive selection of images concerning her paintings, sculptures, drawings, language and performances, and confirms the standing of an artist who, like so many other women artists, has not received the attention she deserves.
