Danielle Roney

Staff Pick

Installation and conceptual artist DANIELLE RONEY was already making thoughtful art that put her in the league of nationally and internationally recognized artists. But Genesis Trial: Johannesburg — Roney’s sprawling, fearless solo exhibition at MOCA-GA last fall — definitely upped the ante. Genesis proved that Roney could not only tackle but master a stunning array of media, while weaving a unified tapestry from disparate strands of the artist’s dreams and obsessions. Through video, sculpture and painting, the show offered a glimpse of the artist’s fascination with the networks of huge urban centers and the ubiquity of digital culture. A follow-up solo show at Kiang Gallery in the winter proved no less incisive. Roney’s already been all over the world; fortunately, we have her art to bring the world back to us. www.danielleroney.com.
