MARTIN Z. MARGULIES COLLECTION: One of Miami's most stunning private collections.
Started three decades ago with "titan artists", this private museum is a gem settled in a 45.000 square feet warehouse. Abstract art, minimalism, pop art, expressionism, conceptual art, a "must be seen" in the Wynwood Art District.
Commentaries by Margulies and his longtime curator, Katherine Hinds, about why and how certain works were added to the collection gave us insights into the mind, or perhaps the heart, of a collector;
In the leading 20th century master's rooms, huge sculptures of minimalist artists such as Richard Serra, Sol Lewitt, Tony Smith, Miro, John Chamberlain, Georges SeagalÉ or a unique piece of Roy Lichtenstein, are cleverly confronted with painters or photographer expressing the same sensibility or frame of mind, making "A Correlated Exhibition" (new and vintage photography linked to contemporary sculpture). Powerful and sober presentation.
Ernesto Neto, Olafur Oliasson, Magdalena Abakanowicz Hurma 1994-1995 (an epic figurative environment by the renowned Polish sculptor) and international emerging artists offer an extremely diversified and high quality set of works and installations.
Videos from George Osodi, Isaac Julien, (Western Union: Small Boats, 2007 A film installation on migration and the hope for a better life), Zilvinas Kempinas, Hiraki Sawa (Going Places Sitting Down, 2004).
MOCA, at the Goldman's Warehouse: "The possibility of an Island":
Inspired by our French author Michel Houellebecq "as a starting point, the exhibition poses existential questions about a never arriving future, addressing anxieties about aging, death, irrelevancy, culture and destruction. Covering themes from habitation and technology to fear and hope".

"The New Deal in America 1933-43, a retrospective of this period through vintage objects, photographs and paintings sounds like a forewarning of world's today's crisis.
