Interview with collector Martin Z. Margulies

Martin Z. Margulies is collecting art since more than 30 years already, the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse celebrates a decade of exhibitions and educational programming. Currently, during Art Basel Miami Beach and through April 2009, the Collection presents work – among others – by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Isaac Julien, and George Osodi.
In this video, Martin Z. Margulies talks about the recent acquisitions, the common thread of the collection, the roots of his interest in art, what things have changed and stayed the same over the years, and the collaboration with the Lotus House (a shelter for homeless women and children, run by Martin Z. Margulies’s wife Constance Collins Margulies). The Margulies Collection publishes a limited edition portfolio with 10 photographs to beneft the Lotus Endowment Fund.
An exhibition walk-through is coming soon. See also our 2007 video: Sculptures / The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, Miami / Interview with Curator Katherine Hinds.
