Harry Roseman



Will Corwin speaks with artist, professor and Chairman of the Art Department at Vassar Harry Roseman about his increasingly complicated artistic undertakings and how this has led to the problematic implications of referring to him as anything other than, as capaciously as possible, an artist. He discusses his public art projects--should you find yourself in the Wall Street 2/3 station or JFK International Airport, Roseman's the guy who made the giant sculptural installations you're staring at--his 2010 exhibition Harry Roseman: Hole in the Wall, which arose partly out of a crisis he had twenty years earlier, and, in short, the effect of life on art. He also discusses his experience working for Tony Smith and, in particular, Joseph Cornell, for whom he began as a leaf-raker and later became, in many senses, a collaborator (34 minutes).
