Artists pushing boundaries of form and content
A Simple Collective is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new works by artist-in-residence Tim Roseborough. The exhibition opens September 3, following a 2-week residence in the project space where he will create a portion of the works in the exhibition.
As a member of the “Bay Area Digitalist” movement—a group of artists heavily influenced by the environment of Silicon Valley—Tim Roseborough’s work comments on the prevalence of screen media that permeates all aspects of contemporary life and culture and the information and activities that are presented within.
Roseborough will spend his residency working on his recent project: Contenda, an experimental contest based on the quiz bowl / college bowl format prominent in high schools and universities across the globe. The Contenda format consists of a “quiz bowl” format in which three to four contestants are provided with a button “buzzer” system and a host asks twenty to thirty questions about artists, artworks, artistic movements, and other queries pertinent to visual culture. A screen is used for visual clues to accompany the questions. Digital images and animations presented in “puzzle” and “brain teaser” formats will form the “New Media Art” aspect of the event.
Tim Roseborough’s work and performances have been included in exhibitions at SFMOMA, the 2010 and 2012 ZERO1 New Media Biennials, The Yerba Buena Night Art Festival, and Catharine Clark Gallery. Roseborough holds an M.S., Interactive Media from Boston University College of Communication and a B.A., English and Communication from Tulane University. Roseborough’s work has attracted critical attention from such publications as ARTNews, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the International Review of African American Art. Roseborough lives and works in San Francisco, California, and is represented by A Simple Collective.
