The collaborative duo known as RoCoCo is comprised of KC Rosenberg and Modesto Covarrubias. These interdisciplinary artists describe their practice as a dialog of making, and they are interested in the juxtaposition of materials and response to space (architectural and natural) in their exploration of complex emotional states, social justice, and contemporary culture. RoCoCo’s work most often takes form through sculptural installations, but has also included video, performance, drawing, painting, and audience participation.
RoCoCo presented their work as featured speakers at the Studio Art Quilt Associates Conference: Threads of Innovation, at the Hilton San Jose, on April 27, 2019. The 2019 SAQA Conference was in San Jose from April 25 to April 28.
RoCoCo is featured in the September 2018 issue of Oakland Magazine. Go to your nearest newsstand or bookstore to find the issue featuring an insightful and informative article by Mary Corbin. Or, follow the link here.
RoCoCo were Artists-in-Residence at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles from October through December 2017.
RoCoCo is short for Rosenberg Covarrubias Collaborations (or collaborative, conspirators, conversations, corporation, coalition, commentators, co-editors, collective, cohorts, you get the idea...)
