Miami collectors Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz snap up Bock stage-set

The piece was used for a stage performance in the Arsenale

Ranging the fair floor yesterday, collectors Don, Mera and Jason Rubell were informed that their Miami competitors Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz had bought John Bock’s stage-set for his performance in the Arsenale (supposedly sight unseen), an installation that had amply filled a towering space within the former rope factory. After a moment of disbelief, Don Rubell bounced back, exclaiming, “They’re going to have to build another house!”
