Alone Together 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.
This exhibition is a celebration of many solitary acts of art creation, joined together in the context of the Rubell’s Foundation. It is organized as a precursory survey in anticipation of the Foundation’s overview catalog that will be published in 2013. The exhibition does not represent a community of artists, but a community of artworks joined together by our passion for each individual piece, the time we live in, and fate.
Artists in the exhibition:
Raoul De Keyser
Peter Fischli & David Weiss
R. H. Quaytman
Paloma Varga Weisz
