Alexandra Rubinstein is a Brooklyn-based conceptual artist whose practice focuses on how culture and gender affect power. 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 self-education, therapy, and experience, she worked to reconcile the burden of womanhood, 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 to active consumers. Taking back power and control, without taking centuries of oppression too seriously.
