Tom Marioni: Golden Rectangle
UNITED STATES
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Yerba Buena Center for the Arts  •  Ongoing
 
This solo exhibition includes a commissioned site-specific installation titled The Temple of Geometry. A series of white cubes within the white cube of the gallery, Marioni's Temple embodies the sacred geometry of Golden Rectangle and is lit to alter the atmosphere of the room.

The exhibition reflects Marioni's interest in Asian art and thought, specifically Zen Buddhism, in emphasizing the creative process over the finished product, the ephemeral over the permanent. Rather than giving primacy to the art object, Marioni treats the gallery as a space for both contemplation and social interaction. The installation becomes a music hall for one-time performance of Marioni's Buddhist Band. In addition, Marioni will extend The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends Is the Highest Form of Art, his ongoing performance project, into the Center's galleries, where he will interact with visitors on Thursday afternoons.
