Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) is pleased to announce the first solo institutional exhibition of Los Angeles, California-based artist Brian Rochefort. As part of MCASB’s Bloom Projects series Rochefort will exhibit new works as an extension of the ongoing body of work Craters. Building ceramic vessels reminiscent of geological formations in Belize, Tanzania, Nicaragua, and the Galapagos Islands, Rochefort has developed the Craters series over the last three years in response to his extensive travels to remote locations throughout South and Central America, and East Africa. What began as a fascination with volcanoes and craters, such as Sierra Negra Crater in Ecuador, live volcanoes in Nicaragua, and Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, has shifted to interests in protected barrier reefs and tropical cloud forests, amongst other physical phenomena.

This exhibition is curated by Alexandra Terry, Associate Curator.
