Mika Rottenberg

Mika Rottenberg’s self-titled solo exhibition at The Bass (December 6, 2017 – April 29, 2018) presents a selection of work created within the past two years. Her work often focuses on elucidating the mechanics of late-stage, global capitalism by way of absurd and poetic comparisons. The exhibition occupies all galleries comprising the historic building of the museum and features the U.S. debut of several works, including a new variant of the artist’s recent commission for Skulptur Projekte Münster (2017) titled Cosmic Generator (loaded #2). In a parallel gallery, NoNoseKnows (AP) (2015), punctuates the space with a video and sculptural installation that combines fact and fiction, documenting a group of Chinese laborers who harvest pearls from oysters in ZhuJi, China, empty high rises near Shanghai, and a fictional set built in the artist’s studio in New York. The work first debuted at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).
