The fall 2022 artist resident is Robin Rhode (b. 1976, Cape Town, South Africa) whose multi-faceted practice creates visual narratives through quotidian materials such as soap, charcoal, chalk, and paint. Rhode came of age in the newly post-apartheid South Africa and this history shapes Rhode's work, revealing a range of historical and contemporary references, and an innate skill for blending high and low art forms. The winner of the 2018 Zurich Art Prize, Rhode has had exhibitions at Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar, the Netherlands; Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Wolfsburg, Germany; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel; and Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art, Savannah, among others. 

Rhode's work will also be on view in the fall 2022 exhibition Urban Impressions: Experiencing the Contemporary Global Metropolis.
