Anselm Kiefer: Paintings, Sculpture and Installation, until 30 April 2016, Margulies Collection at the Warehouse
Anselm Kiefer’s work, which often refers to Germany’s Nazi past, has been accused of glossing over that history. Katherine Hinds, the long-time curator of Martin Margulies’s private collection, says visitors to its Miami show have felt differently. “All I can tell you is that audiences find it a very powerful exhibition onto which they can project and through which they can think about the loss of humanity throughout the 20th century,” she says. Kiefer’s show is being put to good use: all admission fees for the Margulies Collection ($10 for adults, $5 for students and free for students from the State of Florida) goes directly to the Lotus House Shelter for homeless women and children in Miami.
