Spend part of your Valentine’s Day with a special behind-the-scenes tour with Marvin and Elayne Mordes.  Usually open to only private tour groups, this is an opportunity to walk through their private home and view their personal collection of wall art, sculpture and furniture.

 

In addition to touring their private space, you will see the entire Whitespace Collection, including the “Zoetrope” of Mat Collishaw and a preview of “Love” by Tracy Moffett (courtsey of the Sagamore Art Hotel in Miami Beach) .  The Mordes’ are “sweetening” the invitation with bubbly and sweet refreshments, a special “Goodie Bag”, a complimentary limited edition print from the Claudia Alvarez Project and a special “thank you” gift.

The Journey of human survival is beautifully complex.
This photograph of me at the age of three was taken when I immigrated into the United States.
It suggests the concepts of assimilation, displacement, tolerance, and compassion –
and their relationship to time, space and experience.
Claudia has written a  poem to accompany this project.
A copy will be included with each poster.

Mat Collishaw:  Parnagraphia 

a spinning installation based on Mantegna’s famous painting “Mars and Venus”or sometimes titled Parnaso – 1497 and currently displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.  Both depict the forbidden love between Venus and Mars, surrounded by Apollo and the Dancing Muses of the arts, under the protecting gaze of Mercury.
Collishaw appropriates the delicate symbology of Mantegna’s work and explodes it in a sculptural intervention on the zoetrope’s pre-cinematographic technology, giving the illusion of a moving dioramic set in which all the symbolic elements are conveyed in a mesmerizing choreography.

Marvin and Elayne will lead this special tour.  Sharing their vast knowledge of the contemporary art scene as well as personal anecdotes, The Rickie Report knows that this promises to be a Valentine’s Day you won’t soon forget. Make your reservations NOW!
