DENIM DYNAMOS PAUL AND MAURICE MARCIANO DEBUT L.A.’S MOST FASHIONABLE NEW MUSEUM.
After five years in “art development land,” cofounders of the iconic Guess denim empire, Paul and Maurice Marciano, have unveiled their long-awaited dream project, the Marciano Art Foundation. The brothers’ keen eye for mid-career and emerging artists has resulted in a much-ballyhooed assemblage of more than 1,500 pieces, 100 of which are featured in the inaugural exhibit, “Unpacking.” “I’m so happy that Adrian Villar Rojas’s sleeping David sculpture is in our ‘Black
Box,’” says head curator Philipp Kaiser of one of the collection’s highlights. Housed in the commanding austerity of the newly renovated Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in mid-Wilshire, the foundation promises to serve as a space for the cultivation—and reflection— of Los Angeles’ ever-evolving creative spirit.
