A Sanctuary for Light, Basel
June 8-14, 2009
Joseph Marioni exhibited a special installation at the Art Unlimited pavilion of the 2009 Basel Art Fair. A reception was held on Monday, June 8th.
Marioni has conceived this special project as a model for painting environments that he proposes to create in specific public and private spaces. The unique element in Marioni's vision is that his paintings will be created on site and in an encounter with the natural light of each location. Each Marioni Contemplation Room will belong to its special environment.
This presentation of the Contemplation Room is dedicated to Ernst Beyeler in recognition for his support of Joseph Marioni's work.
