Raquel Rabinovich is a contemporary artist working in a wide range of media, including drawing, collage, painting, sculpture and installation. Born in Buenos Aires, she has lived and worked in the United States since 1967. Raquel has been the recipient of numerous grants and fellowships, most recently the 2011-12 Lee Krasner Award for Lifetime Achievement from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation. In 2012 she was interviewed for inclusion in the Oral History Program of the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Art.
Her recent and current work includes two series: Emergences and River Library. Emergences are site-specific stone sculpture installations created along the shores of the Hudson River that become concealed and revealed with the rising and falling of the river tides. River Library is a series of drawings made with mud from various rivers from around the world. Mud, like the alphabet of a language yet to be deciphered, like a yet unwritten history of nature and culture, functions like a text, providing a memory of our existence.
