The mid-to-late-20th century curator, photographer and preservationist Seymour Rosen is by today’s standards a forgotten figure in the history of outsider and folk art.

Here We Are Now is an exhibition that rekindles his exceptional production as an artist and also reflects his work through the ecology of subjects, objects, and influences which populated his pioneering curatorial efforts.

The show is curated by Brian Chidester and Annalise Flynn, and is produced by Gigi Spratley and Jack Waltrip, artists and friends of Rosen during the last two decades of his life.
