Nancy Rubins



Nancy Rubins

earned her BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and her MFA at UC Davis. She has received numerous awards, such as two NEA grants, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation award, a Flintridge Foundation award and most recently an American Academy of Arts and Letters Academy Award in Art. Rubins has exhibited extensively in the US and abroad, including  the prestigious Venice Biennale,  the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen, and the Kunstmuseum, Wolfsberg, Germany. Rubins has also had major solo shows at many prominent museums, including Fonds Régional d'Art Contemporain de Bourgogne, France, the Miami Art Museum, Miami, Florida, ARTPACE, San Antonio, the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Nancy Rubins is represented by the Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills and Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York.

Rubins is best known for her monumental, incredibly well-engineered outdoor installations, like the sculpture outside of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, entitled “Chas’ Stainless Steel, Mark Thompson’s Airplane Parts, About 1000 Pounds of Stainless Steel Wire, and Gagosian’s Beverly Hills Space.” The work that Rubins created for Frostig is her first bronze ever and, while the largest piece so far in The Frostig Collection,  is her smallest sculpture. This stunning composition of small boats is very reminiscent of “Big Pleasure Point,” 2006, the 45 foot high by 55 foot wide, gravity-defying assemblage of weathered boats and canoes recently acquired by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego.
