Jennifer Rubell Talks Art, Food and Social Occasion

Jennifer Rubell studied food to become an artist. After receiving a BA from Harvard University in Fine Arts, she attended the Culinary Institute of America. Prior to beginning her artistic practice, she wrote about food for over a decade during which time she published Real Life Entertaining. For the past few years Rubell has created a “Breakfast Project” in the courtyard of the Rubell Family Collection in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach that is consumed by the collection visitors. In the spirit of Hyperallergic’s food art coverage for Turkey Day, I hopped on a call with Rubell to learn about her practice, find out her Thanksgiving secrets and get a sneak preview to this years Breakfast Project.

A not-unexpected surprise awaits visitors to the Miami-based Rubell Family Collection’s website.

Pay attention folks, this is a lesson in narcissism that’s likely to go unparalleled in the art world for a little while.
