As such, Spectrecon1 : Miami, our inaugural presentation, showcases contemporary conceptual artwork inspired by current events, juxtaposed with street photojournalism, various non-art experiments, and other relevant findings; an exhibition of genuine economic wonder, and other strange feelings about the confusions we face.

Featuring samples from the recently discovered collection of eccentric Chasidic rabbi Aryeh Wuensch, who has been obsessively purchasing and hoarding - though never cataloguing - artwork dating from the post war period to the present day. Most of these pieces - including lithographs by Marc Chagall, tapestries by Max Ernst, drawings by Keith Haring, photos by Christian Boltanski and Marina Abramovic, metal sculpture by Beverly Pepper, a book of original collaborations between artist Not Vital and various Italian poets including
Pier Paolo Pasolini, among other works too numerous to mention - have not been shown publicly since their respective openings, if at all.
