Located at the Robarts family home in South Beach Miami, Ed. Varie organized a group show during Art Basel Miami Beach, entitled "Preservation", showcasing the work of nine artists including Mark Delong, David Brandon Geeting, Priscilla Jeong, and Grant Willing. The show aimed to conform to the given landscape of South Beach, weaving art into a private residence.
The title of the show comes from each artists' work coming from various states of preservation — whether physical preservation, self-preservation, or the lack of agency to archive or salvage present materiality, either object or image. Other works illuminated the emotions and ideas around loss and memory, and the successes or inability to maintain them. Working within a personal residential space gave an added sense of transience and absense, as art was hung within the personal effects of a unpresent family home.
