In 1978 architect Peter Marino acquired an artwork from Andy Warhol. Since, The Peter Marino Collection has grown to hundreds of paintings and mixed media pieces representing some of the most notable artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, a select number of which will be presented as part of COUNTERPOINT.
A longtime resident of Southampton, Peter Marino’s architectural work includes award-winning residential, retail, cultural, and hospitality projects worldwide. Well known for integrating art within his designs, Marino has commissioned more than 300 site-specific works. COUNTERPOINT continues Marino’s cross disciplinary practice, revealing influences that have shaped the architect’s career and life-long connection to art.
COUNTERPOINT is organized into four thematic chambers designed on site by Peter Marino:
Among the notable pieces that will be on public display for the first time are Glenn Brown’s sculpture, We Reeled in Drunkenly from Outer Space (2014), and Zhang Huan’s painting, Sea No.1 (2011), and in the Pop Art Gallery will hang a watercolor of flowers signed, “To Peter, Andy Warhol.”
“I am very glad to have this opportunity to bring a part of my art legacy to the community of Hamptonites that shares my love of this wondrous sand dune in the sea.” – Peter Marino

RENTAL EVENT Leningrad, 1970. A group of young Soviet Jews who were denied exit visas, plots to “hijack” an empty plane and escape the USSR. It started as a fantasy, Operation Wedding, as outrageous as it was simple: Under the disguise of a trip to a local family wedding, the group members would buy every ticket on a small 12-seater plane, so there would be no passengers but them, no innocents in harm’s way. The group’s pilot would take over the controls and fly the 16 runaways into the sky, over the Soviet border, on to Sweden, bound for Israel.
