Daughter of renowned architect Daniel Libeskind on life as a new successful artist in NYC
About Rachel Libeskind
Artist Rachel Libeskind was born in Milan, the daughter of the architect Daniel Libeskind. Educated in Berlin and New York, Libeskind completed her B.A. in Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University.
Libeskind’s work is characterized by a unique combination of historicist
appropriation and improvisational rendering. Often found objects are transformed into dystopian or surrealist landscapes. Often humans appear to live in different time zones, have odd relationships of scale, are overtaken by architectural interventions, or are literalized by darkly comedic philosophical text.
