Rozanski's solo capstone exhibition at The International Museum of Surgical Science

Kicking off in Chicago (USA) in November is Emma Rozanski’s solo video art and mixed media exhibition at the International Museum of Surgical Science.

The opening reception is on Friday 2nd November 5.30pm to 7.30pm and is free to attend and drinks will be provided. After that, the exhibition will run until December 2nd 2018. She’s created four new experimental video pieces (including dance, animation and shadow puppetry), a sound installation and a few text-based mixed-media pieces - everything is inspired by and created using the Museum’s vast collection.

Emma will also be conducting a workshop at the Museum on Sunday 11th November called ‘The Poetry of Movement’ - a workshop for self-expression through abstract dance - no dance or performance experience required!

Exciting things all ‘round!
