Rubell Museum celebrates first anniversary with new exhibitions
Yayoi Kusama: Narcissus Garden. November 18, 2020 through December 12, 2021. Occupying the museum's central spine, the artwork contains 700 stainless steel spheres where each viewer plays the role of Narcissus in this immersive landscape installation.

MIAMI, FLA.- On the first anniversary of the opening of its new home in Allapattah, the Rubell Museum has unveiled four new exhibitions that showcase the breadth of its extensive holdings in contemporary art. With over 7,200 works across media, the collection features unprecedented range, tracing key artists, moments, and movements in vital art centers over the past 50 years. The exhibitions include solo presentations of work by Genesis Tramaine , the Rubell Museum’s Artist-in-Residence; Hernan Bas; and Yayoi Kusama; and a selection of highlights from the collection with defining and seminal works by artists the Rubells championed early in their careers.

Originally launched in 1993 as the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Art Foundation, the museum was renamed to underscore the Rubells’ dedication to serving as a public resource. Housed in six former industrial buildings that were connected and transformed by Selldorf Architects, the Museum allows the Rubells to present more of their collection than ever before.

Exhibition details follow below:

• Genesis Tramaine: Sanctuary – on view through December 12, 2021: Genesis Tramaine, the Rubell Museum’s 2020 Artist-in-Residence, presents Sanctuary, a series of eight paintings the artist created during her six-week residency at the museum. Heavily influenced by her spiritual upbringing and study of the Bible, Traimaine depicts biblical figures and portraits in this series.

• Hernan Bas – on view through December 12, 2021: Hernan Bas is one of South Florida’s most celebrated artists, whose work incorporates romantic and classical images. The drawings and paintings presented in this exhibition may be read as an allegory of the stages of human life from childhood to youth adolescence.

• Yayoi Kusama: Narcissus Garden – on view through December 12, 2021: This immersive landscape installation contains 700 stainless steel spheres where each viewer plays the role of Narcissus.

• Collection Highlights: Ongoing at the museum is a selection of major works from their extensive collection. Artists featured include Nina Chanel Abney, Isa Genzken, Felix Gonzales Torres, Barbara Kruger, Kerry James Marshall, Oscar Murillo, Mary Weatherford, and Lisa Yuskavage.
