New Exhibits at the Rubell Collection: Oscar Murillo and ‘Alone Together’

MIAMI—During Art Basel Miami Beach, the Rubbell Family Collection welcomed visitors to explore two new exhibits—a special presentation of work by Oscar Murillo, the Rubell collection’s first-ever artist in residence, and “Alone Together,” its annual show featuring 31 artists.

“Oscar Murillo: work” showcases a series of five paintings Murillo made during a five-week summer residency at the collection. The canvases are a lively, abstract mix of color, numbers and words. (Murillo chose to incorporate terms such as “mango,” “chorizo” and “yoga” for their social implications and associations.) The exhibit is the Colombian-born, London-based artist’s first show in the United States.

Both “Alone Together” and “Oscar Murillo: work” are on view from Dec. 5, 2012 to Aug. 2, 2013.
