About

Rob Roth is a multidisciplinary artist and director based in New York City, and received his BFA from Pratt Institute. Roth has continually combined a variety of media in his distinctive works of art–using theater, film, audio, and performance–to create the richly textured work showcased at such venues as the New Museum for Contemporary Art, PS122, Abrons Art Center, Galapagos Art Space, the Museum of Arts and Design, Deitch Projects, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.

Roth’s work had its early fertilization in the 1990’s at New York City’s legendary underground nightclub, MOTHER, and his poetic visual language springs from his initial training as a painter. As an artist and believer in theater as ritual, Roth creates lyrical and mysterious works within a deconstructed narrative. With a critical eye on culture, he presents deep and poetic forms of film, theater and sound, usually within a hybrid of each.  His explorations of cinematic language and form within live performance, result in creations of haunting imagery influenced by renaissance painting, classic Hollywood films, and mystical chemistry, that combined, plumb the depths of eroticism, human sexuality and death.
