Peter Marino’s exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami

Coinciding with Art Basel Miami, the Bass Museum of Art dedicates an exhibition to legendary architect and interior designer Peter Marino, famous for his stores for Chanel, Luis Vuitton and Dior, as well as for his unique way of blending art, fashion and architectural design. Titled “One Way: Peter Marino”, the exhibition brings together significant pieces from Marino’s extensive art collection, including works by Andy Warhol, Loris Gréaud, Keith Haring, Richard Serra, Rudolf Stingel, Vik Muniz and Damien Hirst, along with his luxury boutique designs and his series of cast-bronze boxes. On view there is also a selection of his large collection of bronzes and sculpture, as well as commissioned new work by artists Gregor Hildebrandt, Guy Limone, Farhad Moshiri, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Erwin Wurm.

“One Way: Peter Marino” begins with an impressive installation by Gregor Hildebrandt made out from hundreds of videotape strips, and ends with a recreation of Christophe Willibald Gluck’s opera “Orfeo ed Euridice”, a collaborative project between Marino, his wife Jane Trapnell, Michal Rovner, Dior and Francesco Clemente that recreates the opera originally staged in Marino’s New York home in 2013. The exhibition also features a section with photographs and sculptures depicting the celebrated architect, as well as two rooms dedicated to Robert Mapplethorpe and Pop Art –a notion to Marino’s close relationship with his mentor, Andy Warhol. “One Way: Peter Marino” is curated by famed Jérôme Sans, co-founder and former director of Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and will remain on view at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami, until May 3, 2015.
