Jordan Rosenow is a visual and performance artist who focuses on queering building materials through choreographic gestures. They investigate relationships of materials and movement by using simple motions such as touching, bending, leaning and standing. Rosenow's choreography is exploring the overlap between dance and sculpture by performing stillness and repetitive movements. 

Jordan Rosenow is currently based in New York, NY and is from Minneapolis, MN. Rosenow has exhibited at The White Page, Rochester Art Center, ACRE Projects, The Soap Factory, and Franconia Sculpture Park. Their performance work was recently presented at Lynden Sculpture Garden and the Walker Art Center.
