ARTNEWS: Bass Museum Announces Ten-Year Acquisitions Initiative, Starting with Work By Ugo Rondinone and Sylvie Fleury

By Robin Scher

Miami Beach’s Bass Museum has announced an acquisitions initiative that will add “a major work of contemporary art” to its permanent collection every year in the fall over the next decade. The first set of acquired works are a Ugo Rondinone sculpture and a Sylvie Fleury neon installation. Fleury’s work is currently on view and the date of the unveiling of the Rondinone is not yet confirmed.

The news comes a few weeks after the Bass announced that its post-renovations reopening had been pushed back to spring 2017, depriving Art Basel Miami Beach attendees from seeing the museum during its originally scheduled opening this December. The museum closed for renovations in May 2015.

When the Bass does reopen, visitors will be able to enjoy Rondinone’s majestic 41-foot totemic day-glo sculpture Miami Mountain—which is similar to the celebrated works that he installed outside Las Vegas this yearalongside a site-specific neon work created for the museum by Fleury, Eternity Now. (That work was commissioned by the museum, and installed last December on its front facade as a temporary installation.)

The Bass’s executive director and chief curator, Silvia Karman Cubiñá, will head the initiative alongside board president George Lindemann. In a statement, Cubiñá said that this initiative will “reflect the dynamic spirit and international character of our community” and that Rondinone and Fleury’s works “are just the beginning.”

CORRECTION 09/27/2015, 11:30 a.m.: An earlier version of this article stated that Sylvie Fleury’s work, Eternity Now, would debut in 2017. The post has been updated to reflect this change.
