The Bass Museum of Art presents One Way: Peter Marino, an exhibition curated by culture agitator Jérôme Sans and open until may 3 that explores the renowned American architect’s multifaceted relationship with art fashion and design.
Recognized as a pioneer of cross-disciplinary practice, architect Peter Marino forward- thinking has always intersected different disciplines working with some of the most influential lifestyle brands worldwide. That’s way DesignMiami/ honoured him with 2014 Visionary Design Award.
RELATED STORIES: ArchiPanic has been scouting for inspirations and visioanry projects that meshed art and design at DesignMiami/2014. From bespoke designers’ cakes by Studio Job, Victor & Rolf, Alessandro Mendini and others to Perrier-Jouët “Ephemeral” installation by mischer’traxler, from Maarten de Ceulaer’s Grid Series lighting that join woodcraft with wireless LED technology to Daniel Liebeskind and Patricia Urquiola Counting the Rice Table for Moroso that guested a performance of Marina Abramovic and MAI, Marina Abramovich Institute.
The exhibition at Bass Museum explores the interplay between Marino’s iconic architectural designs, his personal collection of contemporary art and his series of cast-bronze boxes.
True to the architect’s practice of creating bespoke environments at the intersection of art, design and fashion, One Way: Peter Marino will feature commissioned new work by artists Gregor Hildebrandt, Guy Limone, Farhad Moshiri, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Erwin Wurm.
The exhibition welcomes the guests with Hildebrandt’s Orphische Schatten (Orphic Shadows), a site-specific installation that employs hundreds of videotape strips culled from copies of Jean Cocteau’s classic film Orphée.
Visitors are then guided through a selection of works from Marino’s personal collection of contemporary art, including pieces by Anselm Kiefer, David LaChapelle, Keith Haring, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring and Andy Warhol.
The exhibition also features sections dedicated to Pop Art, iconic portraiture and photography, and Marino’s recently designed series of cast-bronze boxes.
One Way: Peter Marino exhibitiion ends with the recreation of Christophe Willibald Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice. This work – a collaboration between Marino, his wife Jane Trapnell, Michal Rovner, Dior and Francesco Clemente – recreates the opera originally staged in Marino’s New York home in 2013 with sets designed by Marino himself.
Artistic collaborations and privately commissioned performances such as Orfeo ed Euridice demonstrate Marino’s passion and continued drive to work with the most talented individuals in the visual and performing arts.
