David Rosetzky at RMIT Gallery

David Rosetzky’s work How To Feel (2010) will be on view within the collection group exhibition, Working Title: Studio Practice in the RMIT Art Collection at the RMIT Gallery in Melbourne.

This exhibition aims to unearth a rich history of studio practice at RMIT, revealing notable academics, alumni, methods and collaborations across collecting legacies over the past century.

Rosetzky’s film work reflects on shifts in social relations between public and private life, both on and away from the screen. In a highly individualised society where self-determination and self-improvement are taken as a given, How To Feel provides an intimate portrait of a fractured and proliferating self, acutely affected by our environment and reflective of the people that surround us.

Working Title: Studio Practice in the RMIT Art Collection
RMIT Gallery, Naarm/Melbourne
30 May – 27 July 2024
Opening event: Thursday, 6th June (6–8pm)

David Rosetzky and Aleks Danko in ‘Interfacial Intimacies’

David Rosetzky’s video work Gaps (2014) will be presented alongside Aleks Danko’s sculptural installation Incident – Ambivalence (1991-92) in the forthcoming travelling group show Interfacial Intimacies.

Curated by Caine Chennatt, the exhibition brings together artists who hold and express tenderly multiple aspects of their selves through a series of portraiture and anti-portraiture. Through photography, film, installations, sculpture, textile, and performance, this exhibition explores the tensions of our networked personalities – our shadows, our masks, our shame.

Organised by the Plimsoll Gallery at the University of Tasmania, the exhibition’s touring schedule is as follows:

Redcliffe Art Gallery, Moreton Bay, QLD: 18 May 2024 – 27 July 2024

David Rosetzky, ‘Air to Atmosphere’ Website & Publication

David Rosetzky’s commission, Air to Atmosphere explores the diversity, trauma, resilience, and pride of the LGBTQIA+ community on Dja Dja Wurrung Country in Central Victoria. Presented throughout the Castlemaine Art Museum, commencing with the Terrace Projection screening every evening from dusk, Air to Atmosphere celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community through video, photography, publishing, performance and an extensive website.

Rosetzky turns his prodigious skill and deep intuition towards what might be considered a documentary enquiry with a creative outcome. And herein lies his remarkable achievement, to weaken the seemingly stark distinction between art and documentary.

‘David Rosetzky: Air to Atmosphere’

David Rosetzky is collaborating with members of the LGBTQIA+ community in Central Regional Victoria including &so, Eden Swan, Terence Jaensch and Rhett D’Costa amongst others, to create a major exhibition commissioned by Castlemaine Art Museum. This large collaborative and multi-disciplinary work includes photography, filmmaking, performance, publishing, music, song, choreography by Jo Lloyd and social events created with and about local artists and community members.

‘David Rosetzky: Air to Atmosphere’ runs from 24 March – 3 September 2023.
