This new silkscreen is derived from the 2011 New Commissions exhibition Emily Roysdon: Positions at Art in General. Created specifically for the exhibition, Roysdon produced three large silkscreened rectangular panels that leaned against the gallery walls—using the room as armature and exploring the weight of an image. The works explore the intersection between figure and ground, the logic of the grid, and the repetition and accumulation of ungrounded figures.
Emily Roysdon (b. 1977) is an interdisciplinary artist and writer. Roysdon completed the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program in 2001 and an Interdisciplinary MFA at UCLA in 2006. In 2008 she was a resident at the International Artists Studio Program in Sweden (IASPIS). Her work has been shown at the 2010 Whitney Biennial, Greater NY at PS1; Manifesta 8, Bucharest Bienniale 4, Participant, Inc. (NY); Generali Foundation (Vienna); New Museum (NY); and the Power Plant (Toronto). Recent solo shows include Konsthall C in Stockholm and a Matrix commission from the Berkeley Art Museum. Her videos have been screened widely, most recently at the Berlinale and the Images Festival (Toronto). Her writings have been published in numerous books and magazines, including the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, Zehar, C Magazine, and Women & Performance: a Journal of Feminist Theory. Roysdon is a recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Award (2010) and a contributing member with the band MEN. She recently developed the concept “ecstatic resistance” to talk about the impossible and imaginary in politics. The concept debuted with simultaneous shows at Grand Arts in Kansas City, and X Initiative in New York in 2010.
