Coffee Chat: Brooke Burnside and Tammie Rubin

Brooke Burnside was born and raised in Nassau, Bahamas. She earned her BA in Film from Vassar College and her MA in Media, Culture, and Communication from New York University. She recently graduated from the Masters of Architecture program at the University of Texas at Austin and is now a designer at Mark Odom Studio. Burnside has shown work in Nassau, Bahamas, at MASS Gallery and Ivester Contemporary in Austin, as well as at the Spring Break Art show in New York City. She was a recipient of the 2020 Big Medium LINE residency and also participated in the 2020 Willow House residency for Black Artists in Terlingua, TX. Through drawing and collage, Burnside's work explores geography, position, memory, and the transgressive potential in abstract documentation.

Tammie Rubin’s sculptural practice considers the intrinsic power of objects as signifiers, wishful contraptions, and mythic relics while investigating the tension between the readymade and the handcrafted object. Using intricate motifs, Rubin delves into themes involving ritual, domestic and liturgical objects, mapping, migration, magical thinking, and sensual desire. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States, and her sculptures are part of public and private collections. Her work has received reviews in online and printed publications such as Artforum, Art in America, Glasstire, Sightlines, fields, Conflict of Interest, Arts and Culture Texas, Ceramics: Art & Perception, and Ceramics Monthly. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Rubin lives in Austin, TX, where she is an Associate Professor of Ceramics & Sculpture at St. Edward’s University.
