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.

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. Take a look at some photos below… Discuss Art Basel Week Miami here.

We have some photos here of Viveros’ working […]

Other artists who will be participating include: Aaron Horkey – Aaron Nagel – Adam Caldwell […]
It’s that time of year again where our eyes turn towards the festivities coming up in Miami for Art Basel Week (see last year). First up is news from Australian artist Jeremy Geddes (interviewed) who we haven’t heard much from since his sold out solo show at Jonathan LeVine (covered) last year. He just introduced three new pieces he painted for the New York gallery’s booth at Pulse Miami – Ascent, Eoan and Labent – meticulously detailed hyper-realistic oil on board pieces. With these paintings, Geddes is further exploring and developing familiar imagery […]
Frieze London is one of the world’s leading art fairs and this year it took place from the 17th – 20th of October in Regent’s Park.

Showing both artworks by the world’s biggest names in contemporary art, along with […]
Last weekend, the fourth Beyond Eden art fair opened its doors at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park. Great crowds of art lovers showed up to support the various galleries (Thinkspace, C.A.V.E Gallery, Copro Gallery, and Spoke Art) and the artists represented. Some highlights were as special presentation recognizing Greg Escalante’s contributions to the LA art scene, the first showing of Chet Zar’s Ego Death project, as well as the Bird’s Eye View and Wild At Heart II group exhibitions. Take a look at more photos below… Photo credit: Sam Graham. Discuss Beyond Eden here.
Moniker Art Fair, one of the events on the week’s busy schedule in London, opened with a private view on the 17th of October.

In a relaxed atmosphere, the crowd was able to enjoy some works from the street and urban art movement. Presenting both young and emerging artists, alongside some established and names, these two fairs were a great opportunity for young […]
