About the Exhibition

Rubinstein’s works highlight the major icons and celebrities of the second half of the twentieth century. This colourful Pop universe of the 60’s is revisited with the added black and white glamour of the 50’s, in artworks that are infused with the anarchic madness of 80’s street art that continues to shake the foundations of Modern art. Rubinstein invites us to immerse ourselves in these memories and rediscover this nostalgia through today’s standards.

In line with Op Art, Rubinstein’s art in movement goes beyond this category to embrace the techniques of kinetic art. The result is striking: the image, fixed at fist, comes to life according to the movements of the viewer. We become the animator vis-à-vis the unprecedented dynamics of his work, that surprise us with every viewing.
