Yesterday, AM stopped by the 19th edition Los Angeles Art Fair at the LA Convention Center to see what the art world had to offer. Although the event lacked some some of the blue-chip power seen at some other art fairs, there was still plenty to hold our attention including the new Littletopia section of of the fair that included art from a genre often not seen at this particular fair. Take a look at some of the highlights (like the barbed wire slippers installation by Tony […]
With the LA Art Show starting next week (January 15th – 19th) at the LA Convention Center (South Hall J and K), it’s time to tell you about Littletopia. Curated by Red Truck Gallery, the gathering of galleries for the art fair also includes Sloan Fine Art, Breeze Block, La Luz de Jesus, Last Rites, Roq La Rue, Spoke Art, Thinkspace, and Varnish Fine Art. Stop by if you are in town as you are sure to see some great pieces from artists you have seen […]
Just like earlier last year for SCOPE during Basel Week Switzerland (covered), the Thinkspace Gallery booth in Miami was also featured a mini-solo show from Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed). Included in the new body of work were her familiar exquisite portraiture of seductively innocent girls, with her technique taking advantage of the wood grain in each piece. Take a look at more photos below… Discuss Audrey Kawasaki here.
The NADA art fair held at the Deauville Beach Resort during Art Basel Week is widely considered one of the other worthy satellite events after “the main fair.” NADA hosts many fresh and upcoming artists in the scene. If you’re searching for a unique perspectives and want to preview out some of the newer directions & trends in the world of art, this fair is definitely one that influences many collectors and gallerists alike. Check out a more detailed look (Part I here) at the goodness that premiered […]
For those who missed Art Basel Week in Miami, Vernissage TV provides some good footage of some of the exhibitions & fairs.

Check out some of the videos below… Discuss Art Basel Week Miami here.
The “main fair” as it is affectionately called by art lovers in Miami is of course the centerpiece of Art Basel Week. Not just prestigious by namesake or by the list of illustrious galleries, but more so the high level of art exhibited by the artists who want to put forward their best work. As always, it felte like there was so much blue-chip goodness, but so little time at Art Basel. From Kapoor (seen above), Colen, Martin, De Kooning, Chamberlain, Pruitt, Houseago, Creed, Auerbach, Kusama to Longo, just to […]
As part of our survey of this year’s Art Basel Week in Miami, we already brought you some highlights from the PULSE art fair. It’s now time to focus in on some of the booths that caught our eye. The Los Angeles-based Martha Otero Gallery’s booth was filled with some choice work by artists who readers of AM should be familiar with – Jen Stark (seen above), Tim Biskup, Eric White, James Jean, Mars-1, and more… Discuss Art Basel Week Miami here.
As we continue our survey of Art Basel Week in Miami, we turn our eyes to Art Miami and its sister fair CONTEXT. The combined exhibition space of the two events featured over 190 galleries and covered over 200,000 square feet. Strolling through the booths, we found artist new and old that drew our attention. As with last year, there was the controversial display of un-authenticated work purported to be from Banksy presumably from his recent art residency in New York. Enjoy more of our photos below… Discuss Art […]
One of the long-time satellite fairs we always check out during Art Basel Week in Miami is Pulse. As in previous years, the fair was held at The Ice Palace, just south of Wynwood, and consisted of a wide range of domestic and international galleries, including New Image Art, Martha Otero, Yancey Richardson and Mixed Greens. Visitors were greeted outside by installations by Tim Biskup (seen directly below and Brandon Vickerd, and when inside, they were treated to a dizzying array of intriguing contemporary works by young as […]
The Miami Project successfully launched its second rendition during Basel week with a well-curated selection of U.S. galleries, including such notable names as Yossi Milo, Joshua Liner, Mark Moore, Richard Heller and David B. Smith. Located in the Wynwood Arts District, the young art fair focused on primary representation of emerging and mid-career artists, which was a nice counterpoint to its much larger neighbor, Art Miami. Overall, Miami Project was well-attended, and both galleries and collectors seemed very enthusiastic about the showing. Below is a […]
Another satellite fair we visited yesterday at Art Basel Week in Miami is the event put on by the New Art Dealers Alliance. The 11th Miami edition of the NADA fair included more than 90 galleries and was held at the Deauville Beach Resort. Their growing list of exhibitors include some familar names like The Hole, Andrew Edlin, Marlborough Chelsea, and Bill Brady KC (seen above with some nice Michael Manning paintings).

Yesterday, we visited one of the satellite fairs for Art Basel Week in Miami – the Untitled Art Fair. In its second year, the event expanded to include 90 galleries and not-for-profit spaces from 19 different countries. Instead of working with a selection committee, the fair uses a curatorial approach trusting the New York-based Omar Lopez-Chahoud to select participants to the invite-only showing.
