Construction Zone
Kay Rosen: Construction Zone
WHEN: Jun 30, 2012 - May 31, 2013
WHERE: Future Home of the Aspen Art Museum
HOW MUCH: Free
This summer the Aspen Art Museum continues to present thought-provoking programming on the site of its future home in Aspen’s downtown core. This summer the AAM present's Kay Rosen's installation Construction Zone (2012), designed especially for the site.

AAM Future Home site exhibitions are funded in part by the AAM National Council. Kay Rosen’s project is funded with major underwriting from Nancy and Robert Magoon. Works are created as part of the New Aspen Art Museum Site Commissions.
Originally trained as a linguist, Kay Rosen is internationally renowned for her language-based paintings, drawings, and public installations. Borrowing strategies from the worlds of advertising and design as well as fine art, Rosen's manipulations and juxtapositions highlight the inherent fluidity of language, creating surprising double and triple entendres.

Rosen has created a new work specifically for the covered sidewalk that will wrap around the Spring Street and Hyman Avenue sides of the AAM Future Home site. Playing on the anagram PEEK/KEEP, Rosen's installation will simultaneously ask passersby to "keep out" but also to "peek in," humorously acknowledging the need for safety while also encouraging curiosity.
