Last month, the Cuban-born, Miami-based art collector and philanthropist Rosa de la Cruz died at the age of 81. A few weeks later, the museum that housed her private collection in the city’s Design District closed permanently. A portion of the artworks were consigned by Christie’s, where they will go under the hammer in a series of sales kicking off this evening, May 14, in New York City.

The 30,000-square-foot de la Cruz Collection, open for 15 years, reportedly contained 1,000 pieces. To date, Christie’s has obtained over 200 works acquired by Rosa and her husband, Carlos, and the inaugural 26-lot sale, with works by Ana Mendieta, Felix Gonzales-Torres, Glenn Ligon, Mark Grotjahn, and Peter Doig, among others, is expected to fetch over $30 million, according to Julien Ehlrich, head of Post-War to Present. As major artworks leave Miami, perhaps never to return, questions have arisen regarding the city’s over-dependence on private art collections for its cultural ecosystem, whether other models should be explored, and why artists get the short end when works hit the auction block.

In Venice, Burberry’s Commitment To Championing The British Art World Is Clear

It is 10pm on a clement spring night and a scene is playing out in front of an unremarkable building. There is a bustle of people waiting outside, eager to enter the Narnia that beckons beyond the impeccably-dressed gatekeepers they are negotiating with. Every so often, the unmarked door opens to let in the successful chosen few, offering a teeny glimmer of light to those left behind. In some ways it is reminiscent of the activity outside a hot London club on a typical Friday night. Except of course it isn’t. This is Venice, and it is the opening week of the 60th Biennale – the so-called Olympics of the art world – which opened to the public last week and will run until November.
