New Work: Roberto Behar and Rosario MarquardtFebruary 28 – June 22, 2003
Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt, who were born in Argentina, are a Miami-based architect/artist team who collaborate to create work that moves between painting, installation, public art, architecture, and urbanism. Their works propose encounters between stories and spaces, navigating the areas between the intimate and the monumental, the mundane and the fantastic. At MAM, the artists have modified the museum’s gallery so that it evokes a public space at night, lit by festive strands of colored lights. In the middle of the gallery stands an enormous house of cards. Enveloped by a wooden scaffold, it is unclear whether the house is in the process of construction or collapse.
Organized by Miami Art Museum as part of its New Work series of projects by contemporary artists.
Curated by Assistant Director for Programs/Senior Curator Peter Boswell.
