As a native of Brooklyn, Maddy Rosenberg also spends several months each year away from New York, with Berlin becoming her European base and second home.. She is an artist who works in several media: oil painting, artist’s books, printmaking, drawing, toy theater and installation. Rosenberg most recently had a solo exhibition of her artist’s books at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio and a two-person exhibition featuring all her media, that was the culmination of a month long residency sponsored by the US Consulate in Munich. Rosenberg’s work has appeared in numerous group exhibitions, including at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, The Brooklyn Museum, Philadelphia Athenaeum, The Center for Book Arts, Hebrew Union College Museum, Flux Factory and Kentler International Drawing Space in the U.S; Médiathèque André Malraux in Strasbourg; Eagle Gallery in London and Inselgalerie in Berlin.
Rosenberg maintains an active international curatorial as well as exhibition career. In September 2009, Rosenberg opened CENTRAL BOOKING, a two-gallery space in Brooklyn focusing on artist’s books and their integration into the larger art world through exhibitions on art and science themes (www.centralbookingnyc.com). She continues to do independent curating as well. Narrative Sequences, January-April, 2010, was the third exhibition she curated at The Center for Book Arts in New York. In 2005, Rosenberg’s international multi-venue curatorial project, New York/Paris DIALOGUE Paris/New York received a National Endowment for the Arts grant. After producing the ArtistsBook Library for the exhibition on the theme of Library at Proteus Gowanus, a non-traditional space in Brooklyn, she stayed on as its curator until 2008.
In 2007, Baylor University acquired fifteen of Rosenberg’s artist’s books to create the Maddy Rosenberg Artist’s Book Collection as its own special collection. Other public collections include MoMA, Brooklyn Museum, Tate Gallery, Fogg Museum, Yale University, Colorado University at Boulder, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Victoria and Albert Museum, London College of Communications, Salzburg Museum, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
Grants include the Gottlieb Foundation and Artists Fellowship. Rosenberg has previously enjoyed both national and international residencies at Fundación Valparaiso, Guest Atelier Salzburger Künstlerhaus, Schloss Neuhaus, Blue Mountain Center and Virginia Center for the Arts.
