Event Details



Sit down alongside Jon Rubin for a chat about his most recent artwork. Works by Rubin will be installed in the gallery, including 102.9 Sounds You Never Hear, and Part 3 of an ongoing piece, Eternal Happiness Flying Through The Sky


Jon Rubin creates interventions into public life that reinvent social and political conditions.  These interventions create new platforms for agency, participation, and exchange.  His projects include starting a radio station in an abandoned steel town that only plays the sound of an extinct bird, developing a hypnotized human robot army, running a barter-based nomad art school, operating a restaurant as a live talk show with its customers, and operating another take-out restaurant that only sells food from countries the United States is in conflict with. 

Rubin was Pittsburgh's Artist of the Year in 2011.  He has exhibited at The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Mercosul Biennial, Brazil; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; The Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard, New York; The Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico; The Rooseum, Sweden; The ParkingGallery, Tehran, Iran; Nemo Film Festival, Paris; as well as in backyards, living rooms, and street corners.

Rubin's visit to Temple Contemporary is sponsored by Tyler School of Art's Department of Paintings, Drawing, and Sculpture as well as the Temple University Student Activities Fees.
