The 8th Floor | 17 West 17th St
On view at The 8th Floor, Mobility and Its discontents, features artwork by Jane Benson, Alberto Borea, Angel Delgado, Javier Tellez, Lan Tuazon, and Jorge Wellesley. The exhibition examines the dynamics of mobility and its physical, psychological, socio-economic, geographic, and political boundaries. The exhibit signals a shift in the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation’s mission, now focused on broadening public access to artistic and cultural activities in New York City. Featuring artists from Venezuela, Peru, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines, alongside two Cuban artists from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition conveys experiences of separation, isolation, and distance, experienced in sites such as the United States-Mexico border, New York City’s financial district, and Havana, Cuba.
