Previously known as the Rubell Family Collection, as of December, 2019 the Rubell Museum is located in a new 100,000 square-foot campus of which 80% will be publicly accessible. Housed in a former DEA warehouse transformed by Selldorf Architects, the new museum features 53,000-square-feet of galleries, with 65% dedicated to long-term installations and 35% to special exhibitions, all drawn from the collection. The new museum is located in the Allapattah neighborhood of Miami, less than a mile from its previous home and a short walk from the Santa Clara Metrorail stop.
One of the world’s largest, privately-owned contemporary art collections, the holdings feature such well-known artists as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker and Andy Warhol.
In addition to displaying internationally established artists, the Rubell Museum actively acquires, exhibits and champions emerging artists working at the forefront of contemporary art. Since the beginning, the Rubells have focused on finding artists early in their careers and those who have been overlooked. The result is a wonderfully expansive and deep collection that reveals both resonances and dissonances.
