“Rosemarie Trockel: A Cosmos” stages a dialogue between an artist and her muses. This conversation between exhibition curator Lynne Cooke and art historian Suzanne Hudson takes the exhibition’s format as a model to explore Trockel’s multifaceted oeuvre and expand on its dynamic intersections with artworks from other times and places.
