    Event Description:
    CHRISTOPHER MARLEY | BIOPHILIA: A Dialogue with Art, Nature and Science opens on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at The Gallery of Amazing Things and the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts (WMODA) (481 South Federal Highway, Dania Beach, FL) through March 31, 2018. “Biophilia” means “love of life,” and humanity’s deep and intimate connection with the natural world is explained and experienced in this groundbreaking exhibit, which reveals the beauty in nature through Christopher Marley's three-dimensional work with animal, mineral and plant subjects. The artist, naturalist, and New York Times bestselling author’s work features rare elements of nature presented in precise compositions. All the organisms used in his work are either reclaimed or sustainably culled. Marley’s vision and art vividly explore the natural world, revealing its central role in our world and lives. Opening to coincide with Miami's Art Week, the exhibit spans over 20,000 square feet and showcases over 400 original works. Marley’s artwork has been exhibited by over 500 galleries and retailers worldwide, and is prized by collectors and museums. His second book, “Biophilia” (Abrams, 2015) is a New York Times Bestseller. Marley’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Wired, Slate, The New Yorker, The Times (UK), Condé Nast Traveler, Marie Claire (France), Vogue (Italia), Town and Country, and on CBS Sunday Morning. His work was the design inspiration for the Nike Track shoes used by the athletes in the 2016 Olympic Games. His previous solo exhibitions include Bergdorf Goodman and the flagship Saks 5th Avenue in Manhattan, Gumps in San Francisco, and La Galerie Imaginaire du Bon Marche (Paris), The Wynn, Las Vegas and the Cornell Museum of Art. Marley's work was also featured in Guillermo del Toro's 2016 “At Home with Monsters” exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
