Abbey Shaine Dubin
Abbey Shaine Dubin has been a collaborator in the Selma, Alabama-based project Our Literal Speed since 2006. Presented as a series of events in the vicinity of art and history in Europe and North America, the project synthesizes collective activity, self-reflexive examinations of the art world’s public life, and an intense concern for art’s movement through institutional and technological mediation. Over the years OLS has produced exhibitions, conferences, reviews, essays, scripts, objects, installations, and performances. Dubin has performed at ZKM, Karlsruhe (2008); Clark Art Institute, Williamstown (2009); Art Institute of Chicago (2009); College Art Association, Los Angeles (2009); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2010); Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como and Milan (2010); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2011); Institute of Fine Arts, New York (2012); and Princeton University (2012). OLS project reviews and texts have appeared in Artforum, Art Bulletin, Art Lies, Journal of Curatorial Studies, Journal of Visual Culture, M/E/A/N/I/N/G, October, Oxford Art Journal, and in the survey texts Art Since 1900: 1945 to the Present (second edition) (Thames & Hudson, New York, 2011) and Creamier. In 2010, Dubin received the Epson Fondazione Antonio Ratti Prize for Artistic Research and the project received a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Grant. She earned her MFA in sculpture from UCLA in 2010, and is currently completing work on Our Literal Speed, a book to be published by the University of Chicago Press.
