JW Marriott Marquis Miami and Christie’s Celebrate Miami’s Art Deco Landscape with Pre-Sale Exhibition During Art Week 2013

JW Marriott® and Christie’s are privileged to present a pre-sale exhibition of 20th Century Decorative Arts and Design and Ettore Sottsass: Important Works from a Private Collection during Miami Art Week 2013.

With its unique integration of 20th Century furniture, jewelry, drawings and decorative objects, both collections are truly unparalleled, and feature important works of 20th Century design by Antoni Gaudí, Jean-Michel Frank, Eugene Printz, Jean Royère, Isamu Noguchi, Fernando and Humberto Campana, and Claude Lalanne. The exhibition will be open to the public from daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, December 5 – Sunday, December 8.

As official hotel partner of Art Basel, Design Miami, Art Miami, and the Perez Art Museum, the JW Marriott Marquis Miami is immersed in the growing art scene already present in the city. Besides it’s more than $250,000 in sponsorships, and its support of other arts orginazations such as the Miami International Symphony Orchestra, Florida Grand Opera and others, the hotel and JW Marriott brand boast a strategic partnership with Christie’s, the world’s leading art auction house.  The partnership began during Art Basel 2010 when the hotel featured a popular exhibition of Post-War and Contemporary highlights which included pieces from artists such as Andy Warhol, Antony Gormley and Damien Hirst.

Furthering its artistic endeavor, the hotel launched a museum-caliber art collection worth more than $1 million, called the Art of Reinvention. The collection is comprised of a compilation of more than sixteen one-of-a-kind urban pieces that includes abstract sculptures, photography on aluminum, 3D hand-formed porcelain, and stained glass. Curated by Soho Myriad Art Consulting Services, some of the art found throughout the hotel includes works by renowned artists, such as Martin Dawe, Nancy Lorenz, Nancy Reynolds, David Jordan Williams, Bill Sosin, and Michael Curry to name of few.  The Art of Reinvention has something for everyone…art lover or not, and reflects the downtown hotel’s energy and uniqueness–a fusion of sophistication, design, fashion and technology in an urban environment within the new artful Miami.

“We are excited to celebrate our fourth year hosting Christie’s Auction House and this year’s art deco-inspired 20th Century Decorative Arts & Design exhibition. The Christie’s brand is fitting for JW Marriott and our mutual focus on curating exceptional life experiences” said Florencia Tabeni, General Manager, JW Marriott Marquis Miami.

In addition to the 20th Century Decorative Arts & Design exhibition, the hotel and Christie’s Strategic Partner Beluga Vodka will also fully outfit the sidewalk-facing terrace of db Bistro Moderne Restaurant to create a unique Beluga Vod Box. Guests of the Christie’s exhibition within the hotel will each receive cards redeemable for one Beluga cocktail at the Vod Box.
