Artist Haim Steinbach joins artist and Rail Editor-at-Large Tom McGlynn and Ann C. Collins for a conversation. We conclude with a poetry reading from Bridget Talone.
Born in Rehovot, Israel in 1944, Haim Steinbach has lived in the United States since 1957. He received a BFA from Pratt Institute in 1968, followed by an MFA from Yale University in Connecticut in 1973. In 2018, Steinbach presented the solo exhibition every single day at Museum Kurhaus Kleve, Germany, which traveled to the Museion Bolzano, South Tyrol, Italy in 2019. Also, in 2018, Steinbach presented zerubbabel, the inaugural exhibition of Magasin III, Jaffa, Israel. In 2013, the Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College in New York mounted a major exhibition of Steinbach’s “Displays,” his site-specific installations since the late 1970s. Entitled once again the world is flat, the exhibition traveled to Kunsthalle Zurich and the Serpentine Gallery, London.

The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poem, and we’re fortunate to have Bridget Talone reading.
