In the week before Art Basel Miami Beach the collectors Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz allowed us to have a look at their new exhibition space in the Design District in Miami. While the final preparations for the opening were going on and despite the fact that she was busy coordinating the presentation, Rosa de la Cruz found the time to give us a tour through the new space and speak with us about the the new exhibition space.
In the first part of this conversation with Sabine Trieloff, Rosa de la Cruz talks about the idea behind the new space and the architecture of the building. In the second part of the interview that will be published tomorrow, Rosa de la Cruz talks about her background, the educational program of the collection, the reasons why their collection includes many works by German artists, and a special room with works by Ana Mendieta.
