Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: RISK

Not content to let his MSK brothers (RETNA, RIME) have all the fun, the LA-based RISK also made the trip to Miami for Art Basel Week. Using his unique skills over several days, the influential writer got up this abstract and multicolored gem for his fans in South Florida to enjoy. Thankfully, photographer Koshin Finley was on hand to document everything with his lens. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11: Do Ho Suh @ Lehmann Maupin

Another artist whose work caught our eye during Art Basel Week Miami was Do Ho Suh’s creations for Lehmann Maupin at the main fair. Like his showing at the NY gallery back in September (covered), the Korean sculptor and installation artist brought some captivating household items created from translucent fabric that attracted many fair-goers to examine their ethereal details up close.

Basel Week Miami ’11: Scope

One of the satellite fairs we attended during Art Basel Week Miami was Scope. Housing a variety of genres, we saw a healthy mix of street art, low brow and emerging contemporary art working together as gallerists brought work from artists which you may be familiar with. From OsGemeos to Roa, Ron English to Ray Caesar, Aakash Nihalani to Jenny Morgan, there seemed to be something for everyone at this fair. Check out more photos after the jump.

Basel Week Miami ’11: Ryan McGinley, Dash Snow, and Dan Colen – “The Triology Exhibiton” @ The Ring Art Center

As members of a special group of artists from NY, Ryan McGinley, Dash Snow, and Dan Colen will be forever linked – all have achieved their success in their own right, some more infamously than others. The Triology Exhibition brings three of them together for a show at The Ring Art Center during Art Basel Miami Week and was certainly one of the highlights for AM. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11: FriendsWithYou

During our sojourn into the art extravaganza in Miami known as Art Basel Week, we were happy to be able to visit the artistic duo FriendsWithYou in their home base, office, and gallery space in the Design District. The exhibition consisted of new work created especially for this annual influx of art fans and collectors, as well as some of the work that they displayed at The Hole Gallery back in June (covered).

Basel Week Miami ’11: Rubell Family Collection

One of the most prestigious private showings at Art Basel Miami Week every year is from the Rubell Family Collection. This year, the group show culled from their extensive holdings was entitled American Exuberance, a reference to the fact that all artists included were American citizens and living in the States leading to a keen observation of American culture, economy and politics. On the roster were 64 artists and 190 artworks, 40 of which were made in 2011, many specifically for this exhibition and included […]

Basel Week Miami ’11: JR @ M Building

Yesterday, AM stopped by the M Building in Miami to photograph the newest exhibition from French photographer JR. This showing was an Art Basel Week Miami supplement to his current show at Galerie Perrotin and featured photos as well as wheatpasted found materials from his various projects in the past. As a bonus, the recent TED prize winner also added his signature eyes to the side of the building. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Dabs Myla

Street activity has definitely been strong during Art Basel Week Miami, and this is one of the things that sets it apart from the more prestigious original fair in Switzerland. While walking through the myriad of streets where murals were being put up, we passed by Aussie couple Dabs Myla as they painted this piece. The wall was sponsored by LRG and was almost completed by the time the sun went down yesterday. More photos after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Remi/Rough for Graffuturism

We passed by the Kohn Compound yesterday as we strolled through the Wynwood District in Miami and came across Remi/Rough working on one of outer walls and gate. The UK-based street artist was prepping for the In Situ show put on by Graffuturism tonight featuring post-graffiti abstraction for those interested. Other artists we have featured before on AM who are on the roster include Matt W. Moore, Eric Haze, SheOne, Aaron De la Cruz, and Augustine Kofie. See the full list and more details/photos after […]

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. Showing with Marx & Zavattero, Mark Moore Gallery (more on this booth later), Morgan Lehman Gallery, Jerome Zodo Contemporary, as well as selling out all 30 prints (seen above) of his gold American flags famously with Miami-based nonprofit organization Locust Projects, it certainly has been a busy and productive week […]
