The new project of Sanlorenzo Arts at Art Basel Miami Beach 2021

Sanlorenzo reaffirms its presence at Art Basel, the most significant modern and contemporary art fair on the international scene. A collaboration began in 2018 with the signing of the global partnership agreement for the annual appointments in Hong, Basel and Miami Beach. In 2021 the company reinforces its path aimed to support creativity and contemporary art by launching Sanlorenzo Arts, wich on the occasion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2021 presents a new project with the American artist McArthur Binion.

For Sanlorenzo, Binion conceived the site-specific work "Cobalto", presented inside the Sanlorenzo Lounge, where the choice of Italian ink, which retains its original name Cobalt, is the connection between the artist's practice and the deeper, unknown marine world of Sanlorenzo.
Binion's work combines collage, drawing and painting to create autobiographical abstractions. Using the scale of his own body, he builds compositions from vivid, geometric patterns, chained by a grid. Up close, the painting reveals a substrate of closely juxtaposed and rhythmically arranged copies of personal documents: pages from the artist's address book, his birth certificate and photos of his childhood home in Mississippi
