Basel Week Miami ’10: Ian Francis @ Joshua Liner Gallery

As we mentioned in the Kris Kuski article, Joshua Liner Gallery’s booth was one of the most stunning that we saw at SCOPE Miami this year. Showcasing a trinity of heavy talent that the Chelsea gallery will represent in the upcoming year, it wasn’t a surprise to see passersby drawn to the dynamic displays. AM favorite Ian Francis (featured) created a fresh batch of works for Basel Week and his warped environments were as intriguing and hypnotic as we have come to expect from the […]

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 – “Urban Alchemists” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery
