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

It is an active and interactive channel for projects, linked to the world of art and design, which address the most topical issues in the most original and resourceful ways, thanks to the sensitivity of artists, designers, thinkers and creatives. The project aims to create a strong identity for Sanlorenzo Arts as a true producer of culture and design, and not simply as a sponsor or artistic activator.As part of this innovative journey, Sanlorenzo Arts has invited Flash Art, the iconic international contemporary arts magazine, and its global network of curators, artists and thinkers, to conduct a dialogue between the art world and the Sanlorenzo brand.
