We are excited to announce our 2019 Spring exhibitions! The opening reception for all shows will be Thursday, January 24th from 5-7pm. Sections: New Cities, Future Ruins at the Border (NCFR) is a four-year curatorial initiative that invited artists, designers and thinkers to re-imagine and engage the extreme urbanism of America's Western Sun Belt. Bringing critical and innovative practices from around the world to bear on this urban landscape, NCFR is designed to foster visionary thought and artistic experimentation at these urgent sites. Convergence: New Contemporary Painting from Thinkspace will feature a series of paintings by emerging and established artists associated with the New Contemporary Art movement – a return to realism and representation in painting with an embrace of popular and counter-culture with themes that range from the fantastic to the mundane.  The exhibition is curated in collaboration with LA-based Thinkspace gallery. A Piece of Our Mind: Posters By Joe Scorsone and Alice Drueding will showcase 47 posters that are provocative and contemplative works contributing to a larger global conversation about hunger, the environment, immigration and human rights. Scorsone and Drueding utilize the accessibility of the poster and the power of visual literacy, irony and humor as a vehicle to contribute to a critical discourse in a deeply divided time, both socially and politically. The 2019 Spring exhibitions will be open until April. We hope to see you at our opening reception!
The Rubin Center is having a busy holiday season hosting 16 area high schools, including over 600 students, from both Socorro and Ysleta Independent School Districts. We tailor each visit for the various schools to best support the teachers and their classroom curriculum. Each of the visits include student-led conversations in the Rubin Galleries and a menu of options such as: studio tours of the Department of Art, studio activities directly connected to the current exhibitions, campus tours and more. A very special thank you to the Texas Commission on the Arts for the Arts Respond Project grant and the Valenzuela Law Firm, our generous sponsors, who funded the transportation and supplies for visiting students. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram page for more photos from the visits.
