Tammie Rubin: ‘I, Too, Am’ Opening Reception
August 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
I, Too, Am is an exhibition of a new work by artist Tammie Rubin. The exhibition’s title cites Langston Hughes’s 1926 poem “I, Too,” a work that itself references Walt Whitman’s “I Sing the Body Electric.” Rubin’s immersive installation returns to themes and motifs often at the center of her practice: an exploration of ritual object, mapping, migration, magical thinking, identity, artificial nature, and sensory desire. In I, Too, Am, Rubin juxtaposes the majestic grandeur of the varied American landscape with how those same inspired ideas of vastness and expansion often fall short for its citizens. Contemplating how migrants both willing and forced have found and continue to find this landscape called America daunting, yet also call it home.
This exhibition will be on display from August 22 – September 22.
