How We Live: Selections from the Marc and Livia Straus Collection
The exhibition will be on view from October 12, 2019 to December 6, 2020,
How We Live is a sculpture and video exhibition from the Marc and Livia Straus Family Collection. It includes artists from around the globe who
explore the particularities of their individual cultures through art. 34 sculptures by 31 artists along with six video artists showcase unique heritages,
and in doing so enrich our understanding of the world.
The Strauses have always been interested in art that fosters cross-cultural dialogue. They started collecting at age 20, taking risks to buy work that was
not yet understood, often being amongst the first collectors for many artists. Their collecting practice extended beyond just purchasing, as they
underwrote the fabrication of some of the works included. In each instance their choices were prescient and remain among the most seminal works by
The show is now available as a virtual exhibition on our website http://www.hudsonvalleymoca.or/
This exhibition combines the curatorial vision of Omar Lopez-Chahoud,
Independent Curator and Artistic Director and Curator of Untitled, Art, and
Nicola Trezzi, Director and Chief Curator of the Center for Contemporary Art
Tel Aviv, in collaboration with the Marc and Livia Straus Family.
Featured in this exhibition are works such as Global Encoder (1994) by Nam June Paik,
monument to v.tatlin (1966) by Dan Flavin, Cradle (1999) by Janine Antoni,
Felt Floor (2003) by Rachel Whiteread, and Traitment Musicale (1997) by
Chen Zhen. Each work is in part an exploration of an artist’s life through the
lens of their practice, a poignant reflection of how cultures shape lives and are
in turn molded by those living in them.
