At the Rubell Collection, ‘Alone Together’ Explores the Work of 31 Artists

MIAMI—The opening of “Alone Together,” the new exhibit at the Rubell Family Collection, coincided with Art Basel Miami Beach.

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.
