Rosé Hernandez is a Chicago body-based artist and healer. Drawing from elements of butoh, theater, music, and ritual, Rosé binds the spaces bordering between the body, desire, queer world-making, and spirituality. Through a wide range of performance practices, Rosé navigates the post-millenial landscape in search of love, immanence, and ultimately healing. In addition to their solo practice they are currently collaborating with artist Efren Adkins on Burning Orchid a pre-identity/post-colonial performative earthwork. Rosé attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA, 2008). They were awarded with residencies at Links Hall, ACRE, and were a sponsored artist at High Concept Laboratories. In the past, they have collaborated with artists Ron Athey, Manuel Vason, Sofia Moreno, Ginger Krebs, and Heather Lynn. They have presented work in Chicago at Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, S+S Project, Sullivan Galleries, Aldo Castillo Gallery, Western Exhibitions and New Capital. They have also exhibited work at JACK (NYC), the Judson Church (NYC), Oliver Francis Gallery (Dallas), MOCA (Los Angeles), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Aux Performance Space (Philadelphia), and Little Berlin (Philadelphia).
