From Mastering Media to Marylin Minter
A chat about lunch with Frank Stella and #artworldmuses
Feature 28 May 2019

Opening a new experience in SoHo (details to be revealed soon); Chief Curator of @flutterexperience in LA; Board member of Brooklyn Museum and Bronx Museum, NYC

Karen Robinovitz has spent 25 years working in the media industry (and btw. is co-founder of the Digital Brand Architects) while her personal life has always been about contemporary art. Growing up with art loving parents, Karen was a frequent visitor at museums and remembers that “It was Picasso’s Woman With Yellow Hair that had me mesmerized when I was a kid; I always wondered what her relationship to the artist was, if she was sleeping or relaxing and if she was just relaxing, what was going through her mind.”

Expanding her passion for the art world with public art engagement, she also sits on the Board of Advisors of the Brooklyn Museum and the Board of Trustees at the Bronx Museum. Also Karen is an avid collector herself, particularly drawn towards female artists and counts works by Donna Huanca, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Grace Weaver, Alex Prager or Marilyn Minter among her treasures. While she has a new project in the making that she is ready to share with us soon, we enjoyed our chat about having lunch with Frank Stella, golden Gucci platform sneakers and artists we should get on our watch list:

You first post on Instagram…
A weekend at @kellywearstler’s Malibu home but they’ve been removed because the quality of images, in retrospect, were not as sharp as they needed to be. A big regret. Her home is stunning.
