The Rubell Museum is opening its new location during Miami Art Week 2019. The inaugural exhibition encompasses more than 300 works by 100 artists, providing one of the most far-ranging museum exhibitions of contemporary art ever presented. Drawn entirely from their expansive collection, the exhibition features defining and seminal works by artists whom the Rubells championed as they were first emerging (often becoming the first collectors to acquire their work) and those who had been overlooked.
The new Rubell Museum is housed in six former industrial buildings in Allapattah that have been connected and transformed by Selldorf Architects. The new campus includes 53,000 square feet of gallery space, flexible performance space, an extensive art research library, a bookstore, and an indoor-outdoor restaurant that opens onto a courtyard garden. Designed by La Casona Garden in collaboration with Juan Roselione-Valadez, the garden was conceived of as a restoration project using plants, many now rare and threatened by habitat loss, native to the Everglades and the Florida Keys.
Exhibition on view from December 4, 2019 to May 21, 2020.
