Melissa Ianniello: Wish it Was a Coming Out

August 3, 2022 - January 29, 2023

The Rochester Art Center in partnership with the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/St. Paul presents a solo exhibition of photographs and interviews created by Italian artist Melissa Ianniello (b. 1991, Naples, Italy).

Walk With Us

May 14 - December 11, 2022

When walking becomes an intentional activity, i.e., something more than utilitarian movement, worlds open up. Artists and creative thinkers have been aware of this keyway into creativity for centuries, and so there is a deep history of writers, visual artists, scientists, philosophers and other creative thinkers engaged in this practice.

Có nắng vàng trên bàn tay nhỏ (All the light in your hand)

July 9 - October 5, 2022

Có nắng vàng trên bàn tay nhỏ (All the light in your hand) focuses on the chaos and tenderness of memory and identity. Influenced by the artist’s family albums and branded advertisement archives, the exhibition features large sheets of handmade paper filled with collages of personal and found images, objects and texts.
