Lifestyle guru Jennifer Rubell first worked in the food industry, then wrote for it and finally used food to make art performances. Daughter of Don & Mera Rubell, prodigious contemporary art collectors whose private Museum/Foundation is well-known far beyond its Miami location, Jennifer has been surrounded by the art (world) since her infancy. Since more than a decade, she has also been organizing her parents’ yearly brunch party at Art Basel/Miami, using the occasion to create a mix of culinary and visual delights.
You can see some of her recent pieces, including a cotton-candy-padded cell or a doughnut-pattern wall on her website. And sweetness will prevail also for future projects, which are promised to involve bees – and, inevitably, some honey. Jennifer recently exhibited at Stephen Friedman gallery in London, LACMA in Los Angeles & Saatchi Gallery in London. Also her upcoming shows agenda is nicely full… so keep your eyes open and yr stomachs ready!
