ARTFORUM REVIEW SUMMER 2015:
"... She is a harsh social critic with a facility for image-making, language and design. Far from its comfortable home on Comedy Central or in The Onion, irony in Rothenberg’s hands is a barbed political weapon, and she wields it to underscore the very real injustices she observes in daily life.
"

"[Her} real subject is America [with] a bleakness that suggests the view of America in the best works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Joan Didion"— The New York Times

"Hits home with shattering effect"
—Art in America

Rothenberg is one in a long line of artists to paint a bleak picture beneath America’s glamorous façade, but if anything, looking on the installation with two decades of globalisation and mass networked communication behind us, many of the subjects resonate not just with the U.S but with issues worldwide. In a rather last chance saloon way, just as the repetition of jibes from the witty to the sickening is subsiding, the final category in the House of Cards installation is ‘Hope’ – the freedom to critique through satire and art, to have a voice and be able to laugh with it, is the saving grace to the horrible proliferation of stuff that happens in the world, and in ‘House of Cards’ Rothenberg uses it to hilarious and damning effect. —This Tomorrow

"A re-creation of Erika Rothenberg’s 1992 House of Cards installation, which debuted at MoMA, takes aim at social ills, and it feels fresh as ever—unfortunately. Rothenberg’s satirical Hallmark-style greeting cards address uncomfortable subjects like war (“Sorry my country bombed your country”), discrimination (“Thanks, boss! For your affirmative actions!”), and even the art world (“Congratulations… for being one of the few people who understand Modern art”). “The 90 hand-painted greeting cards are a compendium of every awful, ignorant thing we do to one another,” wrote the artist in a statement. Other cards are aimed at rapists, pedophile priests, and homophobes. The message is clear: don’t stay silent on difficult topics."
—Chicago Magazine

ERIKA ROTHENBERG makes art that takes many forms—painting, sculpture, photography, etc.—and frequently uses words as well as images. Her work has been widely exhibited at galleries and museums including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and Documenta IX in Kassel, Germany. Rothenberg has taught at CalArts, UCLA and Otis College of Art and received grants from the Getty and Norton Foundations. Her work is in many private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Rothenberg has completed several large-scale public art projects, including The Road to Hollywood in Hollywood, California, and Freedom of Expression National Monument (in collaboration with architect Laurie Hawkinson and performance artist John Malpede) in New York City. Christopher Knight, writing in the Los Angeles Times, called the Road to Hollywood “an exceptional work of public art…it ranks among the best public art projects in L.A.” Roberta Smith, writing in The New York Times, said about FofE: “Anyone who wants to can mount the platform and speak his or her mind. Try it. It’s an American tradition, to be exercised in the art world and everywhere else.”
