About the artist:
Carrie Rubinstein is a Brooklyn-based artist who creates ink drawings, paper sculptures, and watercolor paintings. She earned her BA in Studio Art from Smith College, a post- baccalaureate degree in Sculpture from Brandeis University, and her MFA in Sculpture from Hunter College with a semester at L’École des Beaux Arts in Paris.

Notable NYC-based group shows include exhibitions at Arts@Renaissance, Brooklyn Museum’s Go Open Studio Project, A.I.R. Gallery, Orgy Park, The Roger Smith Hotel, and TSA Gallery. In 2010-11, Rubinstein coordinated the tART art collective, and in 2013 was a sculpture resident at the Vermont Studio Center.

Her VSC experience generated early work for Retrofit, a full-room installation made entirely from paper through drawings, hollow constructed sculptures, and castings. Brooklyn’s Rhombus Space presented Retrofit, which was Rubinstein’s first NYC solo show, and she was their August 2015 artist-in-residence. In June 2017, Rubinstein created the paper installation, Found Underground, at Hunter College’s Thomas Hunter Project Space in Manhattan. In September 2017, Retrofit traveled to the Krasl Art Center in St. Joseph, MI. This was Rubinstein’s first solo museum show. Rubinstein was honored to be a pilot artist in-residence at Crosstown Arts in Memphis for 2017-18.

Exhibit will run through January 27, 2019

Homeward Bound Opening Reception

Opening reception for a group show addressing the complex theme of “home.”

A place of home has very different meanings to all of us. Sometimes it is a memory, a sense of place, a person, a dream, a certain chaos, a metaphorical anchor, a roof over our heads.

“I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.” -Charles Dickens

“Going home without my sorrow
Going home sometime tomorrow
Going home to where it’s better than before.
Going home without my burden
Going home behind the curtain
Going home without the costume that I wore.”
-Leonard Cohen

Dis-rupted

  • 430 N Cleveland St Memphis, TN, 38104 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Dis-rupted is a durational performance, led by Crosstown Arts resident artist Santina Amato, that focuses on the materiality of bread dough and women’s bodies in a designated space at 430 N. Cleveland.

This will be the largest project Amato has attempted with bread dough, inviting ten female-identifying persons to create 300 pounds of dough in a public performance held on December 4th between 4-8pm, where they will eventually lay, stand or sit in the dough as it rises around them.

This work is a continuation of Amato’s investigations into the materiality of dough and her focus on the notion of the intimate body, especially the female body.

Amato’s work can be viewed on her website: https://santinaamato.com/
