As part of her residency, Rothenberg curates a series of performances and seminars in conjunction with the Blaffer Art Museum exhibition Damaged Romanticism: A Mirror of Modern Emotion, which surveys a strand of contemporary art that puts emotions front and center, built on the knowledge that rebirth grows out of experiences of things gone horribly wrong.
