Artist Kon Trubkovich uses recollection as the primary source material for his works on paper, paintings, and videos. Drawing from subconscious references, deteriorated home footage, and recorded history, his work reflects moments warped by both time and antiquated technology. He has exhibited nationally at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; and United Artists, Ltd., Marfa, TX; among others; and internationally at Kunstmuseum Bern, Bern, Switzerland; the Athens Biennial of Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece; and The Garage Center for Contemporary Sculpture, Moscow, Russia, to name a few. His work is in numerous permanent collections. Born in Moscow, Russia, Trubkovich lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
Distinguished Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College Jason Rosenfeld, Ph.D., has curated the exhibitions John Everett Millais (Tate Britain, Van Gogh Museum), Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde (Tate Britain and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.), and River Crossings (Olana and Cedar Grove, Hudson and Catskill, New York). He is a co-author of the monograph Cecily Brown (Phaidon, 2020), and a Senior Writer and Editor-at-Large for the Brooklyn Rail.
The Rail has a tradition of ending our conversations with a poetry reading, and we’re fortunate to have imogen xtian smith reading.
