ABOUT THE ARTIST
John Ros is a queer, non-binary, Brooklyn-based installation artist. They are a first generation American, born in New York City, to Cuban and Québécois immigrants who are both classically trained musicians, turned educators. John earned an MFA from Brooklyn College, City University of New York and a BFA from the State University of New York at Binghamton.
John’s multiform, conceptual installations focus on ritual as performance, space/place, light, sound and time. John has exhibited internationally and their work can be found in collections throughout the world. They see teaching, curating and program development as extensions of their social practice which they have implemented in numerous projects over the last twenty-five years.
John is currently the director of studioELL, a space for radical education in studio art practice, which they founded in London, England in 2015. John is also the founding director and curator of intermission museum of art and is a guest director at Squareworks Laboratory.
