While checking out the PULSE art fair (highlights here) during Basel Week Miami, we made sure to stop by the Joshua Liner booth to see what they had to offer. Featuring a diverse mix of work from artists on their roster, we were particularly enamored with a cluster of ESPO works, a new Ian Francis painting, and a new sound sculpture installation in the form of a chandelier from David Ellis and Roberto Carlos Lange. Check out these and more in our photos below… Discuss […]
As we wandered the halls of the PULSE art fair (highlights here) during Basel Week Miami, we came upon the booth of Jonathan LeVine solely featuring the work of Invader. After seeing his work up and about town, we now had a chance to see some of the French artist’s tiled creations up close. Also present was the balloon contraption that allowed him to get his signature character up in space earlier this year (covered). While in Florida, the street artist also hosted a screening for […]
Hailing from Los Angeles and formerly of Seattle, Ambach & Rice’s booth at NADA (highlights here) during Basel Week Miami featured two mid-sized drawings by Eric Yahnker from his Long-Banged Lady series and a large-scale piece called The Good Samaritan. The booth also featured sculptures by Ron van der Ende and Karen Sargsyan. See images of them below… Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
With a popular Jeff Koons exhibit at their Brussels gallery just recently coming to a close, Almine Rech arrived at Art Basel Miami Beach exhibiting a good mix of the young (Alex Israel, who also had a show at the gallery last month), established mid-career (Taryn Simon, Ugo Rondinone) and iconic (Ed Ruscha). Its booth had something interesting for everyone to view and a nice selection for almost every level of collector. Check out the images of the artwork Almine Rech had out on display… […]
As we strolled through the new CONTEXT Art Miami (highlights here), one of the booths that drew us in featured artists diplayed by the Merry Karnowsky Gallery. Included in this particular showing were works from artists we have mentioned here at AM before like Deedee Cheriel, Mark Whalen, Kent Williams, and Greg Simkins.

One of the galleries with the best and largest stables of young artists that every collector keeps an eye out for every year at Art Basel Miami Beach is David Kordansky Gallery. The Culver City, CA stalwart represented Los Angeles’ talked-about art scene to the fullest with great pieces by such coveted artists as Aaron Curry, Kathryn Andrews, Valentin Carron, and Mai-Thu Perret. Andrews actually has a solo exhibition opening soon at the gallery, so this was a nice taste of things to come. See […]
Another strong fair we visited while we were enjoying Basel Week Miami was PULSE. Featuring many galleries and artists that we were familiar with, it was a nice stroll catching up with them as well as learning about some new artists. Here is an overview of what we saw, including these sculptures from Mark Mulroney (seen above), before we take you on some closer in-depth looks at some of the booths. Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
With a hugely popular retrospective that just closed at the Berkeley Art Museum, Barry McGee exhibited two new pieces with his new New York gallery Cheim and Read in its booth at Art Basel Miami Beach. A gigantic skull painting by Donald Baechler was another highlight, as it stared blankly at fair-goers. To say that McGee and Baechler was in good company is much of an understatement, as works by Alice Neel, Joan Mitchell, Lynda Benglis and other notables were spread throughout. Discuss Basel Week […]
Flanked on two walls by monumental works by Gerhard Richter and Julie Mehretu, Marian Goodman Gallery’s booth at Art Basel Miami Beach provided spectacular viewing for all that visited its booth. Art market man of the year Gerhard Richter’s striped piece was from his series using a digital process and provided a taste for those that missed his most recent show with Goodman. Three photographs by Rineke Dijkstra covered one wall and a wall text by Lawrence Weiner were just some of the important artists’ works that were seemingly everywhere you looked at […]
Without a doubt the sun of the art fair solar system that is Basel Week Miami is Art Basel. Concentrating on just this fair and dedicating our energy to catching it in its entirety including the two hundred plus blue chip galleries present took AM two full days (see day one). It was definitely worth the time spent as we observed million of dollars and flowing from collectors into the art world. What was interesting is the more notable influence of a younger generation artists […]
With this year’s presentation of the NADA art fair, The New Art Dealers Alliance celebrates ten years presenting the best in new, young, exciting, and emerging art and artists. If the main Art Basel fair has a reputation for having the most well-known and blue chip works, this fair is known for having names and galleries that will soon take the next step to Basel (although there are some galleries that are perfectly content staying at NADA, which speak volumes regarding the quality and support […]
AM found time to visit another fair in Midtown Miami, the inaugural Miami Project earlier this week. Unlike most new fairs, we were impressed by their solid lineup of respected galleries and great facilities. This is perhaps this is due to the experience of the fair’s organizers, artMRKT Productions, who have already held fairs Houston, San Francisco, and the Hamptons. Check out the selection of works below and the a piece from Mel Bochner above… Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
