Artist Rochelle Feinstein will give a lecture on her work on Tuesday, February 6, 2018,
at 5:30 pm in Taylor 203.

Rochelle Feinstein has been making paintings, exhibitions, photographs, retrospectives, videos, and installations for over 30 years. She is represented by On Stellar Rays in NYC. Her video, Toy George was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial.

"Rochelle Feinstein’s work is hard to decipher. It is full of jokes, yet oddly lacking in punch lines. Unlike that of many of her postmodernist contemporaries, its elusive meaning has consistently deferred any sort of commodification. Alongside a continuous and insistent engagement with the problems of painting, she has produced video as well as sculpture and installation, yet her works are not intertextual pastiche or a pedagogical deconstructive tool." Justin Lieberman, Bomb Magazine,

Feinstein was a member of the visual arts faculty of Bennington College from 1980 through 1994. She was a professor of painting and printmaking at the School of Art, Yale University. She was one of the first females to be tenured at Yale University in the Visual Arts
