Basel Week Miami ’10 – Emmanuel Perrotin Private View and Dinner

One of the first things we did yesterday when we arrived in Miami was attend the Emmanuel Perrotin party and opening reception at their gallery space. The event centered around Daniel Arsham’s sixth solo exhibition, Alter, with three new body of works – Objects from Antiquity, Push Puppets and Pixel Clouds. Other works from the gallery’s impressive roster of artists surrounded the AM crew as well as we enjoyed some art gazing, dinner, and mingling with other like-minded attendees to kick off our Art Basel […]

Openings: Kenny Scharf & Dearraindrops – “Hot Glue Hullabaloo” @ The Hole Gallery

AM recently attended the opening of Kenny Scharf & Dearraindrop’s Hot Glue Hullabaloo at The Hole Gallery. The collaborative show between Kenny and the Virginia Beach collective was a logical one – both are known for their creative and colorful approaches to create works outside the box. Kenny transformed the inside of The Hole into a replica of the “cosmic cavern” from his home which has the effect of transported viewers back to the happy and trippy days of the 60’s & 70’s. Derraindrop chimed […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Scope Art Fair

As we bring our previews and teasers for Art Basel Week here at AM to an end, we are sure you are just as anxious as we are to get into the fairs and onto the streets to see what we have all been waiting for. We start by bringing you an pictorial overview of the SCOPE Art Fair (with more in-depth looks later). Overall, we thought that the works offered this year were stronger than last year’s edition and hope you agree as well. […]

Preview: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Jen Stark @ Carol Jazzar Gallery

Playful mixed-media artist Jen Stark will be showcasing a new selection of her meticulously constructed sculptural works during Art Basel Week in Miami. Exhibiting with Carol Jazzar Gallery at SCOPE, her work is comprised of hand-cut pieces of acid-free color paper tirelessly layered upon one another until the aggregated abstractions, often three dimensional, are stunningly realized. Just thinking about the amount of time and effort put into cutting and connecting every last piece of paper with such precision makes my head hurt. However, the resulting […]

Teaser: Basel Week Miami ’10 – TrustoLand & More

During last year’s Art Basel Week, the world was first introduced to the newly formed TrustoCorp with their unique take on urban art, in which they beautified a host of South Beach sign posts (covered). It looks like the socially conscious street art collective, along with the assistance of Contra Projects, is returning to the scene of the crime and has some big plans for this year’s art festivities in Miami. The subversive collective, who typically spend their time enriching urban neighborhoods – yet simultaneously […]

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 […]
