A Train of Thoughts is the title of a new exhibition of works from the Craig Robins Collection that opened on the occasion of Miami Art Week 2023. The Craig Robins Collection comprises more than 1,300 pieces of contemporary art and design. The works are exhibited within the Dacra headquarters in the Miami Design District on a rotating basis. This year’s rehanging of the collection, titled A Train of Thoughts, focuses on two core subgroups of the collection’s holdings: figuration and conceptualism. The exhibition highlights a collecting history that has favored a taste for the abject and hyperbolic figurative image, in tandem with the self-reflexive, institutional critique of art based on ideas – a seemingly incompatible pair that yields unexpected dialogues.
A Train of Thoughts / Craig Robins Collection, Miami. Opening reception, December 4, 2023.
