The collaborative duo known as RoCoCo is comprised of KC Rosenberg and Modesto Covarrubias. These interdisciplinary artists describe their practice as a dialog of making, and they are interested in the juxtaposition of materials and response to space (architectural and natural) in their exploration of complex emotional states, social justice, and contemporary culture. RoCoCo’s work most often takes form through sculptural installations, but has also included video, performance, drawing, painting, and audience participation. RoCoCo began collaborating in 2015 at Mercury 20 Gallery in Oakland, California, and has since shown work at the Oliver Arts Center on the Oakland campus of California College of the Arts, and the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga. In October 2017 RoCoCo will begin a 3-month residency at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
RoCoCo is short for Rosenberg Covarrubias Collaborations (or collaborative, conspirators, conversations, corporation, coalition, commentators, co-editors, collective, cohorts, you get the idea...)
