The Rubell + Margulies Collections Miami
For a break against the very commercial offerings that seem to take over Art Basel Miami, there are a few prominent private collections that have opened to the public that offer that escape you would expect from these art shows. This year the Rubell Family Collection unveiled ’30 Americans’, a huge exhibition joining together new African American voices together with their influences from the past. The show’s title intentionally disregards racial connotations, in an effort to comment on personal issues of racial identity each artist explores in their work.
The line up includes Jean Michel Basquiat, Kerry James Marshall, Rashid Johnson and Lorna Simpson alongside the newer voices Kehinde Wiley, Noah Davis and Jeff Sonhouse. The other unvieling from The Margulies Collection has continued to show some of the worlds most significant art works in the world spanning from Richard Serra, Dan Flavin, George Segal, Donald Judd and Andy Warhol to new additions from Brazillian twins Os Gemeos with a visual and auditory installation from their show with Deitch Projects and a video piece by Isaac Julien. Have a close up look at some of the works.
