Canterista cenando

Suárez Marzal is perhaps most noted for founding and directing the Fader Museum. Suárez Marzal converted the magnificent mansion and grounds of Emiliano Guinazu in Mendoza into an innovative museum.

Suárez Marzal preserved Fader’s original murals inside the Guinazu mansion, and provided many additional works by Fader and other renowned artists.

Suárez Marzal worked diligently to create the first “museum park” on the Guinazu grounds. Suárez Marzal used geometric lines and cypress trees to form outdoor rooms for sculptural exhibitions. Suárez Marzal attempted to make a museum that stepped outside of the traditional, formal boundaries.
