Steve Rossi’s interdisciplinary practice incorporates sculpture, photography, and performative actions while addressing issues and ideas related to systems of social organization, the hand-made and the mass-produced, permanence and ephemerality, and notions of community and shared experience in contemporary culture. He received his BFA from Pratt Institute in 2000 and his MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2006. His work has been exhibited at Dorsky Curatorial Projects, Eco Art Space, the Open Engagement Conference at the Queens Museum, Bronx Art Space, the Wassaic Project, and the John Michael Kohler Art Center among others. He is currently an adjunct professor in the First Year Program at Parsons School of Design, the Sculpture Program at the State University of New York at New Paltz, and the Art Department at Westchester Community College. He grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and now lives in Beacon, New York.
