New York Critic and Poet
Presented by BURNAWAY
BURNAWAY proudly presents a public talk by New York-based critic and poet Raphael Rubinstein, author of the influential articles “Provisional Painting” and “A Quiet Crisis,” among others.
Rubinstein will speak about recent projects based around his book The Miraculous (Paper Monument, 2014), including a 2016 installation in Edinburgh in which extracts from his book were transposed into a site-specific architectural setting. He will also discuss how borrowing from literary forms can open up new possibilities for art writing.
Raphael Rubinstein is a New York-based poet and art critic. From 1997 to 2007 he was a senior editor at Art in America, where he continues to be a contributing editor. He is currently professor of critical studies at the University of Houston School of Art and an occasional curator. In 2002, the French government presented him with the award of Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters. In 2010, his blog The Silo won a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant.
