Carnegie Museum of Art’s new online exhibition series launches with Lake Valley, an enchanting eight-minute video work by American artist Rachel Rose. With this visually rich, animated video, Rose mines themes and imagery from the history of children’s literature to create a dream-like story about loneliness, imagination, and longing for personal connection.
Debuting online while the museum’s doors remain closed, this timely digital presentation-drawn from the museum’s collection-brings the comfort and inspiration of art directly into the homes of museum visitors. Rose, who exhibited this work in the Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 and the 2017 Venice Biennale, is known for her mesmerizing video installations that immerse the viewer in sound and image, merging cinematic innovation and sensory awareness. With Lake Valley, Rose painstakingly created a highly textured storybook environment through dense collage and cel animation, adding and transforming layers of fantasy and imaginative detail that invite close looking and repeated viewings.
Rachel Rose: Lake Valley is organized by Eric Crosby, Henry J. Heinz II Director of Carnegie Museum of Art.
