David Rosetzky

David Rosetzky is a Melbourne based artist and educator with an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to art making. Often working with practitioners from the fields of theatre, dance, and film – he creates videos, installations and photographic works in which identity is intimately observed.

With an extensive exhibition history both in Australia and overseas, Rosetzky has presented his work in over 30 solo exhibitions and 60 group exhibitions. His Portrait of Cate Blanchett, 2008, was exhibited in The Third ICP Triennial of Photography and Video at the International Centre for Photography in New York. In 2005 he was awarded the Anne Landa Award for the Moving Image. Rosetzky’s recent projects include Air to Atmosphere, 2023, commissioned by Castlemaine Art Gallery, Being Ourselves, 2020, presented at the Museum of Australian Photography, Melbourne, commissioned as part of Portrait of Monash: the ties that bind, and Composite Acts, 2019, commissioned by Channels International Biennial of Video Art, Melbourne. In 2014 the Centre for Contemporary Photography curated the survey exhibition True Self: David Rosetzky Selected works, which toured nationally.

Rosetzky’s works are held in numerous collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. David has a PhD in Visual Art from Monash University and currently teaches in the Master of Photography program at RMIT University.

Artist's CV (PDF)

Over the last decade... [Rosetzky] has quickly and quietly amassed one of the most coherent, nuanced and interpretatively resonant bodies of work in the country. Single- minded and singular in approach, the hallmark of his practice is an intensely self-aware contemporary emotional mannerism.
