THE HARPO FOUNDATION:
Vermont Village: A Conversation Between Art, Water, and the Land
For more than 30 years, the artist, educator, and benefactor Ed Levine built dozens of structures, which exist between sculpture and architecture, on a hillside in rural Vermont. This 2023 release is the first in a film series that includes: encounters with special visitors to Vermont Village, exploring the artist's ideas about phenomenology and public art, and a profile of the artist's energetic career in education such as his establishment of the Visual Arts Program at MIT in 1998. Produced for the Harpo Foundation, founded in 2006 by the artist Ed Levine (1935 - 2020).

This film is derived from an extended experiential film of all the facility's galleries as they were for Miami's 2020 Art Week, with commentary by Margulies and the Collection's curator Katherine Hinds.
Hernan Bas: Works from the Rubell Family Collection
This epic solo exhibition by the South Florida artist– who had just turned 31– encompassed thirty-eight works through multiple galleries including large-scale assemblages and video pieces. The artist immersed the viewer in an impossibly-detailed, unfolding world that manifested romantic and classical imagery, youthful Goth culture, and a maze of reimagined Aesthetic and Decadent period literature. With commentary by then-Deputy Director of Art Charles Desmarais, an impromptu appearance by Arnold L. Lehman, and on-site observations by the artist during the run-up and opening of the show.
Bert Rodriguez in the White Cube
In 2008, Rodriguez produced a large white cube installed in the middle of an ornate 19th century room at the New York Armory for the 2008 Whitney Biennial. Muffled voices were audible outside this cube, suggesting a ghostlike presence that reflected and intensified the Armory's haunting ambience. A single seamless door accessed the interior of the cube, the artist's "office," in which he conducted free therapy sessions daily for more than three weeks to strangers who scheduled appointments online. Including commentary by Doreen Remen, Yvonne Force Villareal, and Stacey Goergen.
