About Lydia Rosenberg:

Lydia Rosenberg is an artist, educator, and exhibition organizer currently based in Pittsburgh. Her work, primarily in sculpture, is concerned with the impact of language on our perception of objects and is informed by an interest in the concreteness of matter in contrast to subjective interpretation. She received her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the University of Pennsylvania and a BFA in Intermedia from Pacific Northwest College of Art. She has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions throughout the US and abroad in Belgium and Chile. She has published written and visual works. Recent solo exhibitions include The complete subject at Napoleon, Philadelphia for which she made several hundred sculptures in the shape of lemons based on written descriptions of the fruit found in paintings and Spaghetti Restaurant at BasketShop Gallery, Cincinnati, which transformed the gallery into a pop-up, cost-free spaghetti-restaurant-as-sculpture. She is a co-founder of Anytime Dept. a now on pause artist-run exhibition project which was based in Cincinnati.
