Rosemary Laing

b.1959 :

Rosemary Laing is a photo-based artist. Her projects are most often created in relation to cultural and/or historically resonant locations throughout Australia. With interventions undertaken in situ or through the use of choreographed performance work, she engages with the politics of place and contemporary culture.

Laing was born in Brisbane, Queensland, and has lived in Sydney for a few decades. Laing has presented solo exhibitions at several museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Kunsthallen Brandts Klædefabrik, Odense, Denmark; Domus Artium 2002, Salamanca, Spain; Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, USA; and National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan. Since the early 1990s she has presented work in numerous curated museum exhibitions worldwide, and has participated in various biennials, including the Biennale of Sydney (2008), Venice Biennale (2007), Busan Biennale (2004), and Istanbul Biennial (1995).

Her work is held in national and international museum collections including: the Museo Nacional Centro De Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain; North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, USA; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, USA; 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan; Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland; and Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

A monograph on Rosemary Laing written by Abigail Solomon-Godeau, has recently been published by Prestel, New York.
