A Lifetime of Passion and Expression, a new exhibit presented by Maison Gerard, displays the sculptural works of the late Marino di Teana in the gallery’s first off-site exhibition.
Marino di Teana
"I am thrilled to present this off-site show in beautifully designed gardens and allow viewers to experience the breadth and scope of this incredible artist's vision in a way the artist intended: in the open and on its own terms," explains Gallery Principal, Benoist F. Drut. The exhibit will include eighteen of Marino di Teana’s sculptures that have been created over three decades from industrial materials such as corten and stainless steel. Ranging in size from an eighteen-inch-high piece, Hommage à Lao Tseu, to a 120-inch-high piece, Liberté, each sculpture represents the artist's critical thinking and pioneering theories in design that he was so widely respected for throughout the course of his career.

The presentation will be on display at the landscaped grounds of a Grosvenor Atterbury mansion in Southampton owned by 1stdibs founder Michael Bruno. Although Teana’s work can be found in collections across the globe from Europe to Asia, this alfresco experience with lush greens, historic architecture, and the Hamptons shore as a backdrop is a must-see occurrence that won’t come around often. The show is open to the public by appointment and will run from July 22-August 26. Call 212-674-7611 to schedule your appointment.
