jennifer rubell presents annual food performance ‘devotion’ at the rubell family collection, miami, USA

2 December 2015
Jennifer Rubell will be presenting ‘Devotion' at the Rubell Family Collection on 3 December 2015 from 9 to 11am. It is her 12th annual breakfast performance during Art Basel Miami Beach. Using bread, butter, and a couple engaged to be married (Alban de Pury and Fanny Karst) as her media, Rubell will transform the simple act of cutting and buttering bread into a poetic exploration of repetition as devotion.

The performance marks the opening of ‘No Man's Land: Women Artists from The Rubell Family Collection' which is on view in Miami from 2 December until 28 May 2016. This exhibition will focus on and celebrate work made by more than a hundred female artists of different generations, cultures and disciplines.

Recent projects include ‘Not Alone' at Stephen Friedman Gallery, London (2015), ‘So Sorry' performed at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto (2015); ‘FECUNDITAS and Creation', for Performa, the New York performance-art festival, New York (2014 and 2009); ‘Brad Jones - Diptychs' in collaboration with Brandi Twilley at Sargent's Daughters, New York (2014); ‘Engagement', her iconic waxwork of Prince William, at both Stephen Friedman Gallery and the Saatchi Gallery, London (2011); ‘The de Pury Diptych' at the Saatchi Gallery, London (2010); ‘Icons' at the Brooklyn Museum, New York (2010); and ‘Old-Fashioned' at the LA County Museum of Art, Los Angeles (2010).
