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.

Last Friday I did a poetry reading elsewhere, so I had not yet experienced the gallery on a Friday evening. Wow. Just wow.

After questions about my background, my religion and alternately about my inspiration and vision, the most commonly asked question I've had in the gallery so far is 'How did you learn to do this stuff?' I'm sure that other Native artists have other answers to that question but here is a bit of an answer for me. I use a number of different beading techniques in my work.

Someone asked me today where I got my beads. I have two stores I like to order from online. I have one place I like to go and poke through.  I have a serious bead collection myself. When community members see me bead they often donate things they think I'll like. Finally, I am  often given collections of beads from people who have passed.
