In 1995, Diane and Bruce Halle began collecting Latin American art, with a fairly flexible budget. Bruce is the founder and chairman of Discount Tire, and he and Diane, who live together in Phoenix, wanted to educate themselves and build a greater awareness for Latin American contemporary art.
Almost two decades later, the couple has one of the most impressive and notable collections of Latin American contemporary artwork that includes pieces by Gego, Félix Gonzalez-Torres, Matthias Goeritz, Jorge Macchi, Hélio Oiticica, and Doris Salcedo. And, lucky us, they've agreed to give the public a peek.
"Order, Chaos, and the Space Between” includes more than 50 works of art in a variety of media, including an installation of 30,000 individual black paper moths and butterflies that make up Carlos Amorales’ Black Cloud.
