KNOW JUSTICE: Brooke & Justin Rothshank

Sept 10–Nov 13 at 1315 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams, MA

This two-person show of work by Justin and Brooke Rothshank focuses on American politics, the Supreme Court, and presidential history.

Justin’s work uses photographic collages he creates from images sourced from public domain web imagery and applies them as
decal transfer prints onto hand-thrown dinnerware, pitchers, trophies, and objects used in ceremony. Brooke’s miniatures are hand-painted
watercolors featuring the Supreme Court justices, significant buildings, and singular objects related to the court. Their collaborative works feature Brooke’s finely drawn and carved portraits of the nine justices and their presidential nominators on Justin’s hand thrown and decorated platters. Through this exhibition and its installation, the artists share their interest in the current judicial and political systems with the goal of documentation and encouraging reflection on powerful individuals and their roles within our political system.

THE PRESIDENTIAL TABLE
Saturday, Aug 13
Preview of the exhibition Know Justice with Justin Rothshank’s twenty-
foot table-scape of original decal-printed ceramics depicting the 44 US
