Ruben And Isabel Toledo: Labor Of Love

Often, the history of the art is the history of the muse— the enigmatic, beautiful and notorious women who inspired, taunted, and delighted male artists. For artists Ruben and Isabel Toledo, the muse is the mission, as husband and wife work in synergy to produce a shared vision. Isabel, a fashion designer, inspires her husband’s sculpture, painting and illustration, and together they have created unconventional, humorous, and surreal work for over three decades. See their work, together in tandem, as the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) presents a major exhibition of their new works, Ruben and Isabel Toledo: Labor of Love.

Opening Sunday, December 16 and on view through July 7, 2019
5200 Woodward Ave. | Detroit
