The first consists of thirty-three canvases combined to create one large-scale work, displayed in the Museum’s Rubin Lobby. Each canvas features a composition of circles, evoking traffic lights, dominoes, and the rhythms of Latin music. The second installation, located in the Beaux-Arts Court, draws inspiration from the nearby European paintings collection. Chernozatonskaya has created four painted diptychs, each responding to one of the European galleries’ four themes: “Painting Land and Sea,” “Tracing the Figure,” “Art and Devotion,” and “Russian Modern/Русский Модерн.” Chernozatonskaya graduated from Oberlin College in 2000 and received her M.F.A. from the New York Studio School in 2006. She was recommended by advisory board member Ron Gorchov.

Raw/Cooked is organized by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.
