After his Mountain series in the Nevada desert, Ugo Rondinone installs a new piece commited by The Bass, in the southeast corner of Collins Park, Miami Beach.
The Bass, Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum, announces the arrival and unveiling of Ugo Rondinone’s Miami Mountain, newly installed in the southeast corner of Collins Park in Miami Beach.
Mediating between geological formations and abstract compositions, the installation consists of five, Nevada-sourced limestone boulders, each boasting a different fluorescent color, stacked vertically to a total of 12.5 meters high. Commissioned by The Bass, Miami Mountain is the latest work in Rondinone’s mountain series and the first of its kind to be acquired by a museum. The work extends the artist’s long-running interest in natural phenomena and their reformulation in art. The sculpture is the newest addition to the museum’s permanent collection, and part of the museum’s most recent acquisition initiative dedicated to international contemporary art, and it will be officially inaugurated durin Art Basel Miami 2016.
