Basel Week Miami ’10 – Sikkema Jenkins & Co.

New York’s highly prestigious Sikkema Jenkins & Co. had many ooohs and aahs by visitors at their Art Basel Miami Beach booth due particularly to the piece above by one of the most talked-about artists recently – Mark Bradford.  The large-scale piece was one of AM’s favorites at the fair and magnificent to look at and stand in front of.  The booth included work by many other acclaimed artists, such as Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, and William Cordova.  It was quality throughout as you will […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Ryan McGinness – “Women: The Blacklight Paintings” @ Club Madonna

One of the most anticipated events of Basel Week Miami was the opening party for Ryan McGinness’ latest series of works Women: The New Blacklight Paintings. Presented by the folks at Country Club x The Standard Miami, the show was held inside a South Beach Strip Club (Club Madonna). Much like the mural which Ryan created for Wynwood Walls, the works took on another dimension once the black light hit. The stunning reactive paint just popped out for the viewers. Upping the ante for the opening, […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Corey Helford Gallery

One of the highlights of the Scope Art Fair this year was the booth from LA’s Corey Helford Gallery. From the moment we stepped foot in area, we noticed a plethora of art from some AM’s favorites like as Luke Chueh, D*Face, Chloe Early, Ron English, Natalia Fabia, Korin Faught, Eric Joyner, Brandi Milne, Sylvia Ji and Shag. The lux booth design was inviting as pimp couches and rugs invited spectators to take a load off to stare at a great preview of artwork for the […]

Videos: Basel Week Miami ’10: Wynwood Walls

As you know, Wynwood Walls was one of the centerpieces of the Art Basel Week Miami experience when it came to outdoor work. Other than the photos we shared with you here, we thought you would like to see some video footage of all the action provided by Vernissage TV. As an added bonus, Tony Goldman, the man behind the entire project, and his daughter Jessica were interviewed on the subject (seen after the jump).

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Hauser & Wirth

As they did at Art Basel Switzerland, Hauser & Wirth brought some spectacular Paul McCarthy pieces to share with the Art Basel Miami Beach attendees.  Luckily, they also exhibited works by other artists in their esteemed program, including Louise Bourgeois, Martin Creed, Subodh Gupta, Mary Heilmann, Roni Horn, Bharti Kher, John McCracken, Joan Mitchell, Roman Signer and Monika Sosnowska. The well-curated booth was a treat to visit and view.  See the works for yourself after the jump…

Two stars of the last auction season – Rudolph Stingel and Kelley Walker, who both had auction records set, were featured up close and personal at Paula Cooper’s booth during Art Basel Miami Beach.  The gallery’s stacked roster of artists provided them with fantastic pieces by the aforementioned duo and also Carl Andre and Wayne Gonzales (pictured above).  The diversity of their program was on display as you can see after the jump…

Streets: Basel Week Miami ’10 – Graffiti

Sharing the stage with the street art at Art Basel Week Miami were the graffiti artists although the lines between the two are sometimes blurred. With events like Graffiti Gone Global, crews from all over the country could be seen working on throwups, tags, and large complex pieces putting their handstyles and techniques on full display. Check out a selection of photos after the jump, but for a lot more, go to Focused On Graff’s photostream…

Basel Week Miami ’10: Shepard Fairey – “Mandala Ornament”

Art Basel Week in Miami may have a lot of action indoors at the fairs, but that’s not the only place you will find the arts. As you can see with Wynwood Walls and along the streets of Miami, in recent years we have seen artists make contributions on the outdoors too. We took a break from the fair circuit during the week to meet up with friend Shepard Fairey to catch him working on this gorgeous Mandala Ornament mural on the side of a […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Andrea Rosen Gallery

With a booth containing sculptures by two of the hottest artists working today – David Altmejd and Sterling Ruby and large-scale pieces by Wolfgang Tillmans, Andrea Rosen Gallery’s booth at Art Basel didn’t need to do much further to stand apart from the others at the Art Basel fair, but stand out it did.  With a small room dedicated to work by the late Felix Gonzalez-Torres whom the gallery is showing at their New York location in a couple of days, Rosen made its booth […]
