Collection

The Related Group boasts an expansive art collection, consisting mostly of international contemporary art. Currently at over 500 objects, the collection is in constant flux as works are continuously being acquired as well as placed in Related’s projects. The pieces in the collection, including drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations, range in scale from intimate to large format.

Reflecting South Florida’s cultural diversity, The Related Group has significant holdings of art by many contemporary artists from Latin America. Over the years, we have supported emerging artists from various regions such as Agustina Woodgate (Argentina), Ximena Garrido Lecca (Peru), Gonzalo Fuenmayor (Colombia), Carlos Huffman (Argentina), Gabriel Acevedo Velarde (Peru) and Omar Barquet (Mexico) among others, as well as mid-career artists who have achieved international acclaim such as José Dávila (Mexico), Los Carpinteros (Cuba), Enrique Martínez Celaya (Cuba/USA), José Bedia (Cuba), Moris (Mexico), Carlos Garaicoa (Cuba), Matías Duville (Argentina), Ray Smith (Mexico/USA), Liliana Porter (Argentina) and Vik Muñiz (Brazil), just to name a few.

The Collection’s acquisition program also echoes Miami’s identity as a meeting place for art and artists from around the globe. It includes works by world renowned artists such as Alex Katz, Frank Stella, Sol Lewitt, Ellsworth Kelly, Candida Hofer and Thomas Houseago. Recent acquisitions include two-dimensional works by Hugo McCloud, Carlos Bunga, Glenda Leon, Dan Rees, Sam Falls and installations by Jose Carlos Martinat and Fernanda Fragateiro.

Public Art Program

In addition to the curated selection of art within each of its projects, The Related Group’s art strategy extends far beyond the building’s walls. A strong commission-based art program is the result of Related being a firm believer in the merging of art and architecture. Commissions range from exterior murals and sculptures to monumental lobby installations. The artists and projects are selected based on a curatorial vision that seeks to unify the artistic selections with the architectural and design inspiration for each space.

Commissions, such as elevator lobby murals by German painter Markus Linnenbrink for Marea, gates designed by José Bedia for One Ocean, a mosaic tile wall mural by Michele Oka Doner at Apogee Beach, a large-scale painted mural by Fabian Burgos spanning the facades of SLS Lux and Brickell Heights, and an exterior painting and sculptural installation by Jaime Gili for Baltus House, are just a few examples of the way in which The Related Group is integrating art into every project.

The Related Group not only provides residents with the unique opportunity to live with artwork, it is committed to enhancing the city with art for the enjoyment of the community. Installing large scale, monumental sculptures for public viewing has become a company hallmark. Monumental sculptures by some of the most widely recognized living artists, such as Fernando Botero, Jaume Plensa, Pablo Atchugarry and Julio Le Parc, grace some of Miami’s most transited thoroughfares.

JORGE M. PEREZ

Founder and Chairman

Being surrounded by striking and thought provoking artworks enriches my life. My vision is to provide that same experience for all residents of The Related Group’s projects. For me, art is a form of expression and an exchange of cultures and ideas conveyed via an aesthetic experience. By commissioning and placing artwork by leading international contemporary artists in every project, my hope is to create spaces that are not only beautiful but inspirational. Reflecting Related’s commitment to quality, every piece is carefully selected by curators in order to achieve the perfect balance of nature, art and design.
