“Feminism is a viewpoint that demands a rethinking of all structural relations in society. Feminism is powerful because it is true.”
—martha rosler

Martha Rosler is considered one of the strongest and most resolute artistic voices of her generation. She skillfully employs diverse materials to address pressing matters of her time, including war, gender roles, gentrification, inequality, and labor. From her feminist photomontages of the 1960s and 1970s to her large-scale installations, Rosler’s vital work reflects an enduring and passionate vision.

Martha Rosler: Irrespective showcases both well-known and rarely seen selections from more than five decades of work. Installations, photographic series, sculpture, and video represent a practice continually evolving and reacting to the shifting contours of political life. Throughout, Rosler’s work has been characterized by intellectual rigor and sharp wit, along with a sense of urgency directed at social and political issues that remain as relevant and immediate as when they first emerged.


Martha Rosler: Irrespective is organized by Darsie Alexander, Susan and Elihu Rose Chief Curator, with Shira Backer, Leon Levy Assistant Curator, The Jewish Museum, in close collaboration with the artist and her studio. The exhibition is designed by New Affiliates (Jaffer Kolb, Ivi Diamantopoulou).

Martha Rosler: Irrespective is made possible by the Goldie and David Blanksteen Foundation, Charlotte Feng Ford, Barbara Lee Family Foundation, and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. Additional support is provided through the Melva Bucksbaum Fund for Contemporary Art, Barbara Horowitz Contemporary Art Fund, the Dorot Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Horace W. Goldsmith Exhibitions Endowment, Susan and Elihu Rose, the Leon Levy Foundation, and Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York.
