Dan Colen at the de la Cruz Collection

Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz opened the de la Cruz Collection in 2009 to provide education in the visual arts. This year, to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach, their 3000-square-foot space features Force and Form, an exhibition that brings together pivotal works from artists in the collection whose practices respond to issues of identity, gender, class, power, and the values that contribute to our social fabric. Challenging traditional practices of sculpture, installation, and painting, familiar materials and found imagery address the innate conflicts of the mechanical gesture and human intention found within commodities and popular culture.

Works by Dan Colen are spotlighted in Force and Form. As noted by Rosa de la Cruz, “We always try to build relationships with the artists in the collection. Our exhibitions are a collective effort that includes the voice of the artists. This exchange helps us build possibilities that extend beyond our understanding of current art practices, and allows for the inclusion of the artists’ vision.”

Force and Form is on view through Saturday, December 9, 2017, 9:00AM to 6:00PM, at the de la Cruz Collection, 23 NE 41st Street, Miami, Florida 33137
