The Rubin Museum of Art is an arts and cultural hub in New York City’s vibrant Chelsea neighborhood that inspires visitors to make connections between contemporary life and the art and ideas of the Himalayas and neighboring regions including India. With a diverse array of thought-provoking exhibitions and programs—including films, concerts, and on-stage conversations—the Rubin provides immersive experiences that encourage personal discoveries and spark new ways of seeing the world. Emphasizing cross-cultural connections, the Rubin is a space to contemplate ideas that extend across history and span human cultures.
Building upon her interest in and experience teaching inflatable sculpture, Emily initiated the production of Cosmic Body, an immersive, iridescent inflatable space created for the Rubin's 2018 Block Party. The inflatable stood at approximately 25 feet tall by 50 feet long.
