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.

This gives me the chance to mention the musicians who came by yesterday and yet somehow didn't get written about (I have an...

June 4—A second foop A few years ago I was given a set of meditation bells in a rosewood box. You were meant to tip the box over and some number of ball bearings inside would adhere to these sticky disks on the top of the box. Then when you flipped it back over the balls would gradually fall in varying patterns of sound. The reality was that you'd get the balls stuck and flip the box and about...

June 3—What is that smell?No fewer than 4 people came into the gallery today with a pressing interest in the smell that our presence here is creating. In fact, the building guy came by to see what the smell was. A primer: really good hides are generally smoked. Both Michael and I are working on hide. He is working on a buffalo skin, I am beading on deerskin. My skins are smoked. Smoke smell is...
