Where: Fairchild's Visitor Center Ballroom
Martin Margulies will speak on the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, one of the most important contemporary art collections in the world today.
Drawing on his extensive experience in the contemporary art world with artists, critics, dealers and other collectors he will present a lively, down-to-earth narrative outlining the running history of post war sculpture. Showing images of some of the great seminal works of sculpture in his collection he will touch on the major historical categories including Modernism, Constructivism, Abstraction, Pop, Minimalism, Earth Art and 21st century Installation. Margulies, in his decades long pursuit of art draws the audience into the wonderfully creative process of contemporary sculpture and helps us get a real look at what is happening in the works of art.
Martin Z. Margulies is a man with a passion for art, a fact that influences every facet of his life. A graduate of the Wharton School of Finance of the University of Pennsylvania, and a successful developer of South Florida luxury real estate projects for the past 35 years, he began collecting in 1976 with the purchase of a work by Isamu Noguchi, and has gone on to build one of the major collections of contemporary American and European art in the world today.
Consistently named to lists such as the ARTnews 200 The World’s Top Collectors, and the top 25 photography collectors in the world, the Margulies Collection is considered by curators, critics, artists and dealers as one of the most important collections of its kind. Focusing on seminal works by important artists, the collection includes European Modernism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual, Arte Provera, Video, Vintage and Contemporary Photography.
