Peter Marino doesn’t need any kind of presentation. Even so, we need to insist on remembering that this magnificent architect is best known for his successful retail exteriors and interiors and for befitting luxury retailers as Dior, Chanel or even Louis Vuitton.
The thing is: Maison et Objet Americas is almost arriving and if you are visiting Miami for the M&O tradeshow, there are a lot of great stuff for you to do in the city. Miami is known for its perfect sunny and sexy beaches, but there’s more to it. Some cultural education never hurt anybody, so you really should visit Marino’s show at the Bass Museum of Art. “One Way: Peter Marino” will be in Miami Beach, through May 3. Just a few days left. What are you waiting for?
And how did this exhibition came out? It happened when George Lindemann and several other board members went to Marino’s office in Manhattan and said, “Wouldn’t it be cool to have an exhibition that felt like your workspace?” See more here. Visiting this exhibition, you will be able to find architect’s multifaceted relationship with art. The main point of this collection is exactly: “Peter Marino collects art, Peter Marino commissions art, and Peter Marino builds art.”
In an interview for Architectural Digest, Marino said: “It’s important to say that the Bass exhibition is not a retrospective. We’re showing architecture from just the past seven or eight years, and the largest part of my art collection, my Renaissance bronzes, won’t be a focus. I’ve already displayed those at L.A.’s Huntington Library, the Wallace Collection in London, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The Miami audience is, shall we say, quite pop. Most of the show are what I would call young and fun and hip.”
