Basel Week Miami ’11: Andrew Schoultz Summary

Art Basel Week in Miami certainly has seen their fair share of Andrew Schoultz’s work with no less than five opportunities (six if you count his outdoor mural for Primary Flight) to admire the Bay Area artist’s work.

Since we are covering Art Basel Week Miami right now, this week’s new artist for our Art Focus is from the PULSE Art Fair showing at the Rena Bransten Gallery booth. Tracey Snelling is a Bay Area artist who creates mixed media installations incorporating photographs, miniature constructions of buildings or towns, video screens, and projections.

Basel Week Miami: “Here Lies Georges Wildenstein” @ Primary Projects

A couple nights ago, the Primary Projects space in Miami’s Design District hosted Here Lies Georges Wildenstein, a group show featuring Marc Bijl, Retna, Michael Vasquez, Miru Kim, Cleon Peterson, George Sánchez-Calderón, Manny Prieres, Andrew Nigon, Scott Shannon, Christina Pettersson, Shelter Serra, How & Nosm, Kenton Parker, Cole Sternberg, Edouard Nardon, & Jel Martine.

While on our way to hit up a plethora of shows associated with Art Basel Week Miami last night at the Design District, we passed by the The Living Room installation. The two-wall open structure is a whimsical and out-of-scale replica of a living room at an intersection that had been rundown as of late, but has been revitalized for this year’s art extravaganza with murals from Ben Eine and ROA for the three day music and art event  DIY // MIA sponsored by AE District Gallery,, […]

One of the first things that caught our eye as we strolled through PULSE in Miami was the new works from Seonna Hong at the Lebasse Projects booth.
