Since Susan Rothenberg’s first solo show at 112 Greene Street, an alternative space in SoHo, in 1975, the artist has had numerous solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad. Important solo exhibitions include a retrospective organized by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo that traveled to the Hirshhorn Museum, The Saint Louis Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Seattle Art Museum, and the Dallas Museum of Art (1992-1994); a survey at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Monterrey, Mexico (1996-1997); "Susan Rothenberg: Paintings from the 90's” at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (1999); and an exhibition of drawings and prints at the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University which traveled to the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu and the Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe (1998-1999). The recent survey, “Moving in Place,” was organized by Michael Auping, Chief Curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and traveled to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe and the Miami Art Museum (2009–2011). Rothenberg’s work is in the collections of over forty major public institutions worldwide.  In 1987, Rothenberg had her first solo exhibition at Sperone Westwater, where she exhibits regularly (1990, 1992, 1994, 1997, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009, and 2011).
