This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust.
Alexandra Rubinstein is a Brooklyn-based conceptual artist whose practice focuses on how culture and gender affect power and narrative. She came to the United States from Russia when she was 9, and spent the magical years of puberty enduring the misogyny of both cultures. Through education, therapy, and self-help, she learned to identify her feelings and channel her rage and resentment into her work. In said work, she challenges dated social systems and prejudices, and reconstructs the cis heterosexual female experience by transforming women from passive objects into active consumers. Taking back power and control, without taking centuries of oppression too seriously.
When she's not working, she can be found running around park, reading in the park, drinking near the park, and generally not leaving her neighbourhood.
