Art Basel Miami Beach: Yogurt for breakfast at the Rubells'

 

Every year during Art Basel Miami Beach, the Rubells, Miami's foremost art-collecting clan, invite guests to their 45,000-square-foot Wynwood home/museum for an artful breakfast. Last year the fare was oatmeal, and you served yourself through a ritualized process that featured mounds of spoons and sugar packets, stacks of bowls, rows of milk, and a phalanx of crock pots -- each component a dwindling sculpture.

This year the breakfast exhibition, organized by Jennifer Rubell, is called Incubation and it is as much cultured as cultural.

But if you look closely, the artist has managed to create a body of work that examines his Cuban heritage and Miami upbringing in interesting ways.
