Recent slide presentation by artist Meridel Rubenstein in San Francisco at Photo Alliance
February 16, 2023 and at Container Art Space in Santa Fe, March 10, 2023.
In addition to her ongoing visual pursuit of stunning images and installations, this video reveals Meridel’s work and commitment to the environment and humanity, including climate change and its effect on the ever increasing fragile and perilous world in which we live. Her artwork focuses on the intersection of nature and culture in countries in the midst of war, most recently, Iraq. Meridel presents images reflecting her concurrent ongoing projects: 1) A wastewater garden that has begun in Iraq, 2) Art inspired by the wastewater project and rich culture and history of the marshes in Iraq, and 3) Upcoming collaborative exhibit with artist, Joanne Grüne-Yanoff, “The Boat Is a Circle.”
