Time Capsule, Age 13 to 21: The Contemporary Art Collection of Jason Rubell is an exhibition that Jason Rubell first curated for his college thesis at Duke University in 1991. It contains 95 artworks he acquired between 1983 and 1991 and features 53 artists from this period, such as George Condo, Robert Gober, Andreas Gursky, Keith Haring, Cady Noland, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman and Rosemarie Trockel. This exhibition traveled to ten university art museums between 1991 and 1994. Jason Rubellʼs experience presenting this exhibition to and for the public greatly informed the opening of the Rubell Family Collection in 1994 with his family. His collecting efforts since that time have been in collaboration with his parents Don and Mera Rubell. The exhibition is a time capsule illustrating Jason Rubellʼs early collecting endeavors and bears witness to numerous artistic movements of the 1980ʼs. A fully illustrated catalog with essays accompanying the exhibition is available via our online bookstore.
