New York, NY | Gallery Tuesdays | Ruby Rumié “Us, 172 Years Later”

June 13, 2023 | 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Ruby Rumie | Us, 172 Years Later

Join ArtTable and Nohra Haime for a tour of “Us, 172 Years Later” by Ruby Rumié at the Nohra Haime Gallery. The project is based on the 19th Century Chorographic Commission in Colombia that includes the inhabitants of the Caribbean coast which were missing in the original scientific study. Rumié puts together one hundred people from the Caribbean region whose unique characteristics share the passion and commitment for their trade, and express in a special way their taste and the value they place on the food from this region, as food is one of the most relevant cultural elements. Rumié inserts the women as a type who were not included in the original Commission due to gender and race.

Born in Cartagena de Indias, Rumié studied painting, drawing and sculpture at the Cartagena School of Fine Arts (1980-1982). From 1989 to 1996 she worked on hyperrealist painting. She then broke away from academia and pursued her work with a clear focus on social issues, both territorial and on patrimony, questioning her commitment as an artist to society. She has held important exhibitions in Colombia, Chile, the United States and France. She exhibited Hálito Divino (Divine Breath) and Tejiendo calles (Weaving Streets) at the Nohra Haime Gallery in New York and at NH Galería in Cartagena, Colombia. She participated in Art Paris and in the first Biennial of Contemporary Art of Cartagena de Indias with her work Lugar común (Common Place). She was awarded the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center fellowship and Women Together from the United Nations (UN) for her anthropological, social and artistic works.

Special thanks to Julia P. Herzberg, PhD.
