Since its 2005 founding, the Rubin Center has made a name for itself as an outpost for the production and exhibition of experimental contemporary art in a geographically isolated border region. It has hosted more than 150 exhibitions and special projects, presented public lectures and conducted workshops for students of all ages, offering the community a direct experience with practitioners from around the globe. Uniquely bilingual and bicultural, its location enables it to partner with artists, institutions and community organizations in both Juarez and El Paso.

We acknowledge our culture’s systemic marginalization of artists because of race, gender, religion, age, ability, sexual orientation, and/or immigration status among other factors. We actively seek to highlight the work of under-represented practitioners and support efforts to address entrenched inequities.
