Alexandra Rubinstein is a Brooklyn-based conceptual artist whose practice focuses on how culture, gender, and sexuality affect power. She came to the United States from Russia when she was 9, and spent the magical years of puberty enduring with the drawbacks of both cultures and the expectations they place on women. Through much thought, therapy, and experience, she was able to reconcile the burden placed on her by society and channel her rage and resentment into her work. In said work, she challenges old social systems and prejudices, and reconstructs the heterosexual female experience by transforming the woman from a passive object to an active consumer. Taking back power and control, without taking centuries of oppression too seriously.
When she's not working, she can be found running around Prospect Park, reading in the park, drinking wine at a bar near the park, and basically not leaving her neighborhood. She's still in therapy and it's going ok.
