Force and Form, further explores shifts in contemporary visual culture, as revealed through the vision of collectors, Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz.

“We always try to build relationships with the artists in the collection. Our exhibitions are a collective effort that includes the voice of the artists. This exchange helps us build possibilities that extend beyond our understanding of current art practices, and allows for the inclusion of the artists’ vision.”
– Rosa de la Cruz

In response to the acceleration of communication and global technological advancements, new modes of production are reshaping the way in which artists employ inventive mark making, digital language, and the use of non-traditional and commercial fabrication. In this context, media is freely deconstructed, pushing the boundaries of high-art and presenting new possibilities.

Force and Form brings together pivotal works from artists in the collection whose practices respond to issues of identity, gender, class, power, and the values that contribute to our social fabric. Challenging traditional practices of sculpture, installation, and painting, familiar materials and found imagery address the innate conflicts of the mechanical gesture and human intention found within commodities and popular culture.
