Contenda: A Visual Quiz Event

April 2–May 4, 2014 | de Young, Kimball Education Gallery/Artist Studio

Wednesdays–Sundays, 1–5 pm, plus Friday nights until 8:45 pm

Contenda is an experimental contest based on “quiz bowl” events at schools and universities. Contestants are provided with a "buzzer" to answer the host's questions about artists, artworks, and artistic movements. Screen-based visual clues accompany each question. The public is invited to help the artist create questions about artworks in the collection of the de Young, while also engaging in fun and challenging pop-quizzes developed by the artist.

Roseborough’s artwork and exhibitions have been covered by numerous publications and websites, including Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, Hyperallergic.com, the San Francisco Chronicle, SF/Arts Monthly, the San Francisco Examiner, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Roseborough lives and works in San Francisco.

November Artist-in-Residence Ana Teresa Fernandez enacts and participates in the intersection of politics and personal identity through painting, performance, and video.

Profile picture of Peggy Gyulai
August Artist-in-Residence Peggy Gyulai explores the connections between music and the expressive possibilities of paint on canvas in her work. She listens to and looks at music as a subject, object, inspiration, and—like Richard Diebenkorn—invokes the dynamic tension between the poles of abstraction and representation, creating substance from ephemeral phenomena.
