Pharmaceutical businessman Juan Vergez and his wife Patricia Pearson-Vergez are staples of the Argentina and Art Basel Miami Beach scene, and for good reason. The two have stocked a former Buenos Aires ink factory with their private collection, which includes a wide array of Latin American and international modern and contemporary art that they have acquired over the last 25-odd years. In fact, the couple has been instrumental in the careers of several Argentinian artists. Vergez and Vergez-Pearson count among their holdings works by Martin Creed, Jorge Pardo, Ana Mendieta, and Tomás Saraceno.
