According to the collection, the show “explores a paradox: artists often work in isolation in their studios, but they are almost always seen and defined in relation to a greater whole. Whether it is called a movement, a moment, a school, a group, or an -ism, this greater whole—defined by artists, critics, historians, museums, galleries, collectors, art institutions, and pure chance—creates a community for the artwork that often lives beyond the life of the artist.
“Alone Together” features 31 artists and is on view from Dec. 5, 2012 to Aug. 2, 2013.
