Jon Rubin

Jon Rubin is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work explores the idiosyncrasies of individual and group behavior. His solo and collaborative projects include creating a game show for ideas, opening a fake store in an indoor shopping mall, starting a restaurant that secretly runs via take-out from its double across the street, broadcasting an office’s telephone conversations through a talking piano, operating a radio station that only plays the sound of an extinct bird, developing a hypnotized human “robot” army, developing a free nomadic art school, and most recently operating a restaurant that produces and broadcasts a live-streaming talk show with its customers, operates a changeable storytelling billboard on its roof, and runs a revolving take-out window from its backdoor that sells food from countries engaged in conflict with the U.S.. He has exhibited video, drawings, installations and public projects internationally including at The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico; The Rooseum, Sweden; Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen, Germany; Nemo Film Festival, Paris; as well as in backyards, living rooms, and street corners.
