Tiffany & Co. today announces Culture of Creativity, its inaugural exhibition at The Landmark, the House’s iconic Fifth Avenue store.  Architect Peter Marino, known for his multifaceted relationship with art that resulted in his being recognized as a pioneer of cross-disciplinary practice – brings his private collection from Peter Marino Art Foundation in Southampton, NY to Tiffany’s two floor exhibition space – embedded within the 10-story flagship.

Culture of Creativity features nearly 70 contemporary artworks by 26 artists – as well as Peter Marino’s collection of Tiffany & Co. sterling silver masterpieces from the 1880s.  At its core, the exhibition is a homage to the enduring and fundamental role that creativity has played at Tiffany & Co., made possible through Peter Marino Art Foundation and Peter Marino’s decades of art patronage.  This exhibition brings together a variety of mediums from a personal collection of artworks that Peter Marino has been developing for over 40 years.

“We are incredibly honored to have the opportunity to re-engage with Peter Marino in a creative partnership for The Landmark’s first major exhibition,” said Anthony Ledru, Chief Executive Officer, Tiffany & Co. “He is the visionary architect who transformed the interiors of our beloved Fifth Avenue store by filling its 10 floors with art. Peter reimagined the Landmark as a world of wonder and cultural hub. There is no better place to show his collection.”

The Culture of Creativity exhibition positions the works from the Peter Marino Art Foundation in context and dialogue with the nearly 50 artworks by the same artists on display throughout The Landmark. Culture of Creativity presents a collection of spectacular artworks in a variety of mediums by Jean-Michel Basquiat, McArthur Binion, Sarah Charlesworth, Francesco Clemente, Johan Creten, Andre Dubreuil, Roe Ethridge, Urs Fischer, Hans Hartung, Molly Hatch, Gregor Hildebrandt, Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, Rashid Johnson, Y.Z Kami, Les Lalanne, Peter Marino, Vik Muniz, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Antoine Poncet, Richard Prince, Julian Schnabel, Sarah Sze, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Not Vital, and Stanley Whitney.

“These artworks from the Peter Marino Art Foundation show the source of inspiration for The Landmark’s art curation and commissions. They represent over 40 years of collecting,” said Peter Marino. “The exhibition highlights parallel works by the same artists whose works are represented in The Landmark.”

Culture of Creativity celebrates Tiffany & Co.’s enduring commitment to artistic excellence, solidifying The Landmark as a cultural institution in New York. Since its founding in 1837, art and craftsmanship have been part of Tiffany’s DNA. In 1853, the House began to exhibit loaned works of art for visitors to admire while shopping. At the end of the 19th century, founder Charles Lewis Tiffany’s son, Louis Comfort Tiffany, became the House’s first Art Director, ushering the House in a new era of art and jewelry design. Today considered as the leader of the Art Nouveau movement, he is one of the most lauded American artists of his time.

In addition to Louis Comfort Tiffany, the House has a long history of creative partnerships with trailblazers such as Jean Schlumberger, Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti, Dr. George Frederick Kunz, Gene Moore, Andy Warhol, Frank Gehry among others. The Culture of Creativity exhibition features some of their works, in addition to other contemporary masterworks, underscoring Tiffany & Co.’s ongoing dedication to fostering artistic expression and cultural enrichment. The Culture of Creativity exhibition, hosted on two floors of The Landmark’s three-floor glass addition, will open on March 4 and run through May 20. Reserve your complimentary tickets beginning March 1st on www.tiffany.com.
