The Peter Marino Art Foundation (PMAF) in Southampton will present a summer-long exhibition from May 25 to September 28, featuring more than 40 works by Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne, and rotating exhibitions of contemporary works by Richard Deacon and McArthur Binion.

Architect Peter Marino curates the entire exhibition throughout the “house museum” with works from his personal collection spanning from Ancient Egypt to the present day in a meticulously restored late 19th century landmark building.

Complementing the exhibition programming is the foundation’s signature event series “Brunch With Bob.” Hosted by co-associate directors Bob Colacello and Isabelle Marino and joined by Marino, each art talk consists of an intimate conversation with a featured guest(s) set amongst the installation of their art. Featured this summer are Richard Deacon on May 25, the Lalannes with Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand and Jane Holzer on June 22 and McArthur Binion on July 22.

In addition, the “Peter Marino Book Club,” a series of author talks and book signings, returns for its second year. Marino will present his upcoming book “Ten Modern Houses” on August 3 followed by Rashid Johnson who will present his recent book “Rashid Johnson” from Phaidon’s Contemporary Artist Series on August 17.

The Peter Marino Art Foundation is open to the public for guided tours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from May 25 through September 28. All visits are by timed entry and advance reservations are recommended. The Peter Marino Art Foundation is at 11 Jobs Lane in Southampton. For tickets, visit petermarinoartfoundation.org.

The Lalannes - May 25 to September 28

Known since the 1960s as “Les Lalannes,” Claude and François-Xavier were pioneers of surrealist sculpture. Claude’s (1924-2019) works were drawn from the flora of her surroundings while François-Xavier (1927-2008) is renowned for his life-size sculptures of animals. Now 60 years since their debut show in Paris, more than 40 works from Peter Marino’s private collection are featured in a summer-long exhibition commemorating his longstanding friendship with the couple. Among the highlights on view are Claude’s “Très Grand Choupatte” (2007) and François-Xavier’s “Grand Chat Polymorphe.”

Richard Deacon - May 25 to July 13

Kicking off the summer are 15 sculptures and drawings by Turner Prize-winner Richard Deacon (b. 1949), a leading British sculptor. Deacon’s works are characterized by a controlled, abstract structure that is combined with an imaginative and unexpected use of everyday materials such as wood or ceramics. He works on both domestic and large scales, combining organic forms with elements of engineering.

McArthur Binion - July 20 to September 28

Thirteen paintings by Chicago-based artist McArthur Binion (b. 1946) highlight a mid-summer show. Highly influenced by language and music, Binion combines collage, drawing, and painting to create complex autobiographical abstractions of painted minimalist patterns over an “under conscious” of personal documents and photographs.
