Miami, December 8, 2017 —Richard Meier and Frank Stella: Space and Form is an intimate installation of photographs, drawings, collages, a sculpture and an architectural model that traces the relationship between the architect and the artist through their careers. The earliest documentation is related to a competition for a fountain design on which Meier and Stella collaborated in 1963.

Richard Meier and Frank Stella

In addition to occasionally working together professionally, their friendship was also expressed in other ways: Stella and his family lived in a loft designed by Richard Meier, Meier began collecting Stella’s work and gave it pride of place in his homes, offices, and studio. By the 1990’s, Meier had begun to receive major commissions for museums and other projects.

Stella was the architect’s choice to provide a sculptural counterpoint to his rigorously modern architecture. Photo documentation of their working alongside each other on the Federal Courthouse in Phoenix, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, the Weishaupt Forum in Germany and the Jubilee Church in Rome, amongst others, reveals not only their individual accomplishments but the unique symbiosis between them.

Richard Meier and Frank Stella: Space and Form is curated by Terence Riley, architect and former director of the Perez Art Museum Miami, and is on view in the Meier Gallery from December 5, 2017, to March 4, 2018.
