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 had work shown as part of the inaugural exhibition of visual art at Idora Park Project Space in Oakland. Material, Land and Body featured the work of Nicole Dixon, Matthew Scheatzle, and RoCoCo. The work of the artists, while varied in approach, sit in conversation with themes of place and time, material and movement. The exhibition was on view from November 8, 2019 to January 4, 2020.
RoCoCo was commissioned to produce a new work for the exhibition Threads: Weaving Humanity at Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California. The exhibition was on view from July 19 to October 25, 2019. Information about the project and the exhibition here.
RoCoCo is short for Rosenberg Covarrubias Collaborations (or collaborative, conspirators, conversations, corporation, coalition, commentators, co-editors, collective, cohorts, you get the idea...)
