Join curator and scholar Lisa Stone and Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator at the New Museum, for a conversation about Barbara Rossi’s practice. Stone has been an ardent admirer of Rossi’s work for decades and is deeply familiar with her creative orbit, as well as the sphere of artists known as the Chicago Imagists. A member of the Roger Brown Study Collection Steering Committee since 1997, Rossi has been a guiding spirit in Stone’s work as Curator at the Collection.

In addition to being Curator at the Roger Brown Study Collection, Stone is Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her research and teaching focus on the preservation and interpretation of artists’ collections and the relationship of objects to creative practice. She works on the documentation and preservation of environments by artists whose works are home- or garden-based and who ignore or dissolve boundaries between home and studio, and between life and art.
