Alexandra Rubinstein is a conceptual artist whose practice focuses on deconstructing patriarchy by making the personal political. She came to the United States from Russia when she was 9, and spent the magical years of puberty under the oppression of both cultures. Through thought, experience, and years of projecting, she was able to reconcile the weight placed on her by society and has continued to explore themes of culture, gender, and power in her work.
