Arte Fuse: The BASS Museum Officially Unveils Ugo Rondinone’s 42 Foot Tall Miami Mountain During ABMB

12/02/2016 by ADMIN

The Bass, Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum, officially unveiled Ugo Rondinone’s Miami Mountain Wednesday evening in Collins Park. Mediating between geological formations and abstract compositions, Miami Mountain consists of five, Nevada-sourced limestone boulders, each boasting a different fluorescent color, stacked vertically to a total of 42 feet high. Commissioned by The Bass, Miami Mountain is the newest addition to the museum’s permanent collection, through the museum’s most recent acquisition initiative dedicated to international contemporary art. Remarks were made at the celebration by The Bass’ Executive Director Silvia Karman Cubiñá, Board President George Lindemann, the artist, and City of Miami Beach commissioners Kristen Rosen Gonzalez and Joy Malakoff.

“After over a year in the making, Miami Mountain by Ugo Rondinone is just the beginning of what’s in store for our institution. We are looking forward to producing more ambitious projects like this one, larger exhibitions, and more robust programming, very much in the spirit of our city and The Bass’ curatorial vision,” said Cubiñá.

Rondinone commented, “Welcome to Miami Mountain. I am very happy to see so many of you here tonight and thank you to Silvia and The Bass for inviting me to do this project. Please enjoy as this is just a taste before my exhibition at the museum next year.”

Commissioner Rosen Gonzalez expressed that “Miami Mountain is going to be so defining, a beacon, for this new cultural arts district here in the Collins Park neighborhood,” and “Miami Beach’s new postcard.”

Ugo Rondinone’s Miami Mountain is included in this year’s Art Basel Public in Collins Park, along with 19 temporary installations on loan from galleries around the world, curated by Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund Nicholas Baume. The museum announces select works from the Public sector to remain on view through March 2017 as part of The Bass Projects, including those by Magdalena Abakanowicz, David Adamo, Jean-Marie Appriou, Huma Bhabha, Yoan Capote, Claudia Comte, Matías Duville, Glenn Kaino, Tony Matelli, Norbert Prangenberg, and Tony Tasset.
