2021 – 2022:
There is Always One Direction
Featuring work by Martin Kippenberger, Rufino Tamayo, Dana Schutz, Carlos Alfonzo, Gabriel Orozco, Salvador Dali, Rudolf Stingel, and Felix Gonzalez Torres, among others. Paintings, sculptures, and site-specific installations from the private collection of Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz. The re-contextualization of works within annual exhibitions reflects their specificity within particular movements and practices and significance within the collection’s history. In revisiting works within the context of the moment, our understanding of their meaning changes.
New Acquisitions: Vaughn Spann, Christina Quarles, Xaviera Simmons, and Shara Hughes, among others.
The de la Cruz Collection is a private museum and is not government funded.
In the late 1980’s, Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz started collecting from their home which they opened to the public by appointment only. From 2001 to 2007, Rosa founded and chaired the non-profit Moore Space, a kunsthalle located in the Design District. (Learn more about the Moore Space.) It was then that Rosa and Carlos started planning and building the present de la Cruz Collection on 41st Street, a 30,000 square foot museum which opened to coincide with Art Basel/Miami 2009.
The Collection also organizes lectures, educational scholarships in NY for high school students of DASH, educational travel to Europe for college students of New World School of the Arts, and summer workshops for grade school children.
