Jo Rosenthal (@JUSTJOROSENTHAL)
Originally from Miami, Florida, Jo Rosenthal, an artist, writer, and model— is one of a select handful of young women in New York right now who are using art and activism to find their voice, and getting noticed doing so. Rosenthal's works explore concepts of love, intimacy, and identity, continually questioning, challenging and confronting what does it mean to be intimate, what does it mean to be in love, what does it mean to capture somebody, what does it mean to be enraptured. Rosenthal combines ideas of innocent playfulness, peerless vulnerability in such beautiful and delicate ways. Jo’s work mirrors her own energy, her aesthetic being almost chaotic, but also ‘smart and confident.’
This art talk is co-organized by So Kim (@ayamox).
