Each year, the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies extends invitations to leading practitioners in these fields to teach courses. For almost fifty years, visiting filmmakers and visual artists have worked closely with students and made a significant impact on the curriculum, as well as contributed to the overall creative and intellectual life of the university.

The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University presents Visiting Faculty 2013-14, with work by Kalup Linzy, Catherine Lord, Luisa Rabbia, Halsey Rodman, Heather Rowe and Roger White.

Halsey Rodman

Halsey Rodman is a visual artist who lives and works in New York City. His work proposes a consen- sual and liberating encounter with objects by rendering apparent the radical instability of their forms. Though appearing disparate and sometimes improvised, his work is conceived and executed using spe- ci c structural, performative, and/or temporal frameworks. Rodman often integrates gestural painting, diagrammatic drawing, and intense color with sculptural and architectural constructions. He has collabo- rated with others to realize “event-based group gurative sculptures.” Rodman draws inspiration from wide-ranging sources, from the Pink Panther to Lacan to Kafka. Rodman received his BA in sculpture from the College of Creative Studies at UCSB and his MFA from Columbia University and has exhib- ited widely both nationally and internationally at venues including Guild & Greyshkul (NY), Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art, and, in collaboration with the SFBC, Los Angeles Contem- porary Exhibitions (LACE). Recent shows include a solo presentation at Arte Portugal 10 (Lisbon) and group exhibitions at Laurel Gitlen (NY) and Sue Scott Gallery (NY). Forthcoming projects include a new commission from Art In General (NY) and a solo exhibition at Soloway (Brooklyn).

Heather Rowe

Rowe is an artist based in Brooklyn, New York who received her MFA from Columbia Uni- versity. She has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries including PS1/MoMA, Long Island City, New York; the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana; the Contemporary Arts Center, Cin- cinnati, Ohio; UMMA/University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor, Michigan; Galerie Zink, Ber- lin, Germany; D’Amelio Terras, New York; Michael Benevento Gallery, Los Angeles; Ballroom Marfa, Texas; Andrea Rosen, New York; White Columns, New York; and Artists Space, New York. In 2008, her work was featured in the Whitney Biennial. Rowe’s art occupies a space at the intersection of sculpture, installation, and architecture. Her constructions investigate the body’s relationship, both on a personal and a social level, to the spaces we inhabit and exist in. Recently, she presented her rst large-scale solo outdoor project at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, NY.

Roger White

Roger White is a painter and writer who splits his time between Middlebury, Vermont and Brooklyn, New York. He has recently exhibited his paintings at the Weatherspoon Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina, The Suburban in Oak Park, Illinois, and Mitchell-Innes & Nash in New York. His work is represented by the Rachel Uffner Gallery in New York. He received an MFA from Columbia University in 2000, and in 2007, he co-founded the art journal Paper Monument.
