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.
The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles featured RoCoCo in the June 16, 2020 SJMQT Artist Spotlight. The spotlight features the responses to a set of interview questions as well images of past and recent work. Check out an excerpt in the the NEWS section. The complete interview and all images may be found on the SJMQT website or visit the link here.
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 is short for Rosenberg Covarrubias Collaborations (or collaborative, conspirators, conversations, corporation, coalition, commentators, co-editors, collective, cohorts, you get the idea...)
