Preview: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Friends With You

It just wouldn’t be Art Basel Miami week without fantastical Floridians Friends With You. This year, the energetic and imaginative duo of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval will be presenting Rainbow City, a large-scale outdoor installation that in their words addresses “the potency of interaction, ritual, and play.” Constructed in Miami’s Design District, the site-specific collection of 40 simple air-filled structures—some up to 40 feet high—are meant to embrace and tower over guests, creating a feeling of reverence. And to add to the excitement, Pharrell […]

Studio Visits / Interviews: Greg Lamarche

Although we’ve been familiar with Greg Lamarche’s work for some time, it took seeing his installation at Scope NY 2010 (covered) for us to start to realize that there was definitely much more to his art than cutting and pasting paper. From his obsessive stockpiling of found and vintage papers to his keen ability to highlight specific or overlooked aspects of those materials, such as bar codes or patterns, Lamarche has a unique talent for collage and a clever approach to the medium that is […]

Art collectors who are fans of the show Lost might just have their dream come true with this just revealed art project planned for Art Basel Week in Miami.

Organized by Shamim M. Momin of non-profit art organization Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND) together with Aaron […]

Kenny Scharf Mural on Houston & Bowery Completed

Completed just in time for the city’s art lovers to view before they embark for Miami, Kenny Scharf’s mural is up on the wall where his close friend and collaborator Keith Haring famously had his.  Once a space where Deitch Projects artists shared their art with the public, it is now curated by Kathy Grayson of The Hole (where Scharf is currently exhibiting).  The piece features the artist’s crowded colorful cast of characters all squeezed in tight.  See it before you take off for Basel, […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Barry McGee @ Ratio 3

Already a key player in exhibitions with OHWOW (teased) and Roberts & Tilton (teased) this coming Art Basel Week in Florida, Barry McGee will continue the all out assault on South Beach with a selection of new works for Ratio 3. One of the founding fathers of the Mission School art movement, the Bay Area street artist is known for his mix-matched “clusters”, incorporating figurative panels of his iconic characters with complimentary panels of geometric patterns and text-based pieces of his many pseudonyms used while […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Ryan McGinley @ Team Gallery

After Team Gallery’s strong efforts across the pond at the Frieze Art Fair last month (covered), the New York gallery will be continuing their participation within the international art fair circuit with a group show at Art Basel Miami Beach. Much like in the London, Ryan McGinley will play a central role at their booth, where already iconic works from his Life Adjustment Center series, like the above “Tracy (Red, White and Blue)”, will be on display. The playful, yet poignant mixture of black and […]
