MIAMI, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Daniel Maman, renowned Argentine art dealer and prominent figure in the Argentinian culture, is slated to open Maman Gallery, his first US gallery bearing his name and located in the heart of Miami's Design District in November 2013. Maman Gallery's grand opening will launch with an exclusive collection of historic and contemporary artwork collected by Daniel Maman himself, along with his wife, Patricia Pacino de Maman, over their years spent traveling the globe while sourcing rich new art.
Since the start of his career, Maman has invested in art; and as a result, his personal collection comprises of 2,000 works of art, all of which are owned by Maman himself. The largest modern and contemporary art gallery in Buenos Aires bears Maman's name, as he's managed and curated important collection pieces by a plethora of notable South American artists over his 37 year career. The gallery's Buenos Aires location opened in October 2001, where it quickly became recognized among the art community for promoting both established and emerging contemporary artists. Over the years, the quality of Maman’s gallery exhibits have earned him acclaim from critics, as well as world wide recognition.
Maman recently moved to Florida with his experience and knowledge not only to show interesting art, but to also drive a cultural movement. Similar to the Buenos Aires location, Maman Gallery will offer art seminars, by both curators and collectors, and will also offer interdisciplinary events related to both design and fashion. Focused in both Modern and Contemporary art, the new space will exhibit historic Latin American artworks: Arte Concreto, Geometric Art, and Kinetik Art. Maman will also showcase the work of contemporary Argentinan artists who are part of the international market, and who are part of the most important museum collections in the world: Leon Ferrari (MOMA, Houston Museum); Guillermo Kuitca (Moma, Tate Gallery), Alberto Greco (Reina Sofia), Liliana Porter (Whitney, Tate Modern), Nicola Constantino (Daros Foundation) and Fernando Canovas (Ivam).
In addition to handling Abstract artists, the gallery also shows the works of Figurative and Neo Figurative painters, such as Colombian artist Fernando Botero, artworks of the Argentinian group Mondongo, and artist Daniel Scheimberg, who will have a solo show and whose catalogue’s prologue will be written by American artist Peter Halley.
Maman Gallery is located at 3930 NE 2nd Avenue, Suite 204, Miami, Florida 33137. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.danielmaman.com.
