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.
