Room 1: Yumi Janairo Roth
All that GlittersIn All that Glitters, Yumi Janairo Roth presents two projects, a collection of police barriers encrusted in disco mirrors and a series of photographs of designer-label carved potatoes, juxtaposing mundane objects with images of luxury and glamour. By combining contrasting visual languages within the same object, the viewer is asked to reconcile the seeming contradiction between surface and material. Roth’s works function as both natives and interlopers to their environments, simultaneously recognizable and unfamiliar to their users.  Yumi Janairo Roth was born in Eugene, OR and raised in Chicago and suburban Washington DC. She currently lives and works in Boulder, CO where she is a professor of sculpture at the University of Colorado. Yumi has created a diverse body of work that includes discrete objects and site-responsive installations, solo projects as well as collaborations. She received a BA in anthropology from Tufts University, a BFA from the School for the Museum of Fine Arts-Boston and an MFA from the State University of New York-New Paltz and was recently nominated for a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award. She has exhibited and participated in artist-in-residencies nationally and internationally, including New York (Bronx River Art Center, Sara Meltzer Gallery, Momenta Art, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Smack Mellon, Cuchifritos), San Francisco (Limn Gallery), Portland (Institute of Contemporary Art, Map Room) Houston (Lawndale Art Center, DiverseWorks), Boston (New Art Center), Denver (Rule Gallery, Center for Visual Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art), Minneapolis (Soap Factory), Milwaukee (Institute of Visual Arts, Kohler Arts/Industry), Santa Fe (Museum of Fine Arts), Seattle (Consolidated Works), Mexico (Arcaute Arte Contemporaneo, La Galleria RufinoTamayo), the Philippines (Ayala and Vargas Museums), Colombia (Universidad Nacional de Colombia), and Czech Republic (Galerie Klatovy-Klenova, Institute of Art and Design-Pilsen), and Germany (Frankfurt Kunstverein). yumijroth.com
