LA Art Show ’16: Recap

Last week, the LA Art Show was in town for another go around bringing in more than 120 galleries representing 22 countries. The 2016 edition was the 21st iteration of the fair, but third year for a special section of the event entitled Littletopia (see 2014, 2015).

Basel Week Miami ’15: Art Basel (Part 2)

Contrary to popular belief, Basel Week Miami isn’t just about walking around buying art from your favorite gallery or dealer. It is also a time for the general public to find inspiration from the vast assortment of quality art being displayed. Every year, the main Art Basel Miami Beach fair does a great job of serving as a “pop-up” museum for the week as over 70,000 people walk through the fair to catch legends of the past and legends in the making for the art world. It doesn’t matter […]

Basel Week Miami ’15: Art Basel (Part 1)

During the start of Basel Week Miami, we gave you an early first look during the VIP session of the Art Basel Miami Beach fair. The first day (as in years past) was the proverbial “running of the bulls” for many of the world’s elite collectors as they stormed the ginormous floor of the Miami convention center in search of artwork to add to their collections. Blue-chip galleries displayed 2015’s treasures by artists such as Andy Warhol, Kaws, Alex Israel, Tal R, Alex Katz, Josh Smith, Yoshitomo Nara, Ai […]

Basel Week Miami ’15 / Recap: NADA

During Basel Week Miami, the second must-visit fair right behind Art Basel Miami Beach every year is NADA Miami Beach. Focusing on younger galleries and artists, NADA typically contains more fresh to market works, surprising finds, and new discoveries. Located for the first time this year at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, it includes exhibitors from 32 cities in 15 different countries, and 21 first-time participants. Next year’s edition of the fair will be even bigger, as it expands to another section of the hotel. […]

Basel Week Miami ’15: Art Basel Miami Beach // Nova Sector

The Art Basel fair is known for presenting the best of the best in established blue chip international art. It is also a place where collectors, curators, and enthusiasts can also discover new artists as well. The Nova sector of the fair is designed for galleries to present one, two or three artists showing works created within the last three years. It features strong associations and fresh, never-before-seen pieces from the artist’s studio to each gallery’s booths. Galleries and artists exhibiting in this sector include Michael Jon […]

Basel Week Miami ’15: Art Basel Miami Beach // Positions Sector

One of the biggest criticisms of art fairs leveled by art lovers is that it is not the proper venue for properly conceived and realized artist exhibitions. Fair booths typically contain a collection of discrete works that are made to be sold and consumed. Art Basel Miami Beach’s Positions sector is the response to this criticism. The galleries that show in this part of the fair are given a platform for a single artist to present one major project. This includes installations or exhibitions that include multiple works […]

Basel Week Miami ’15 / Recap: Untitled

Another strong satellite fair seen during this year’s Basel Week Miami was certainly Untitled. Showing a diverse selection of contemporary works, the roster included 119 international galleries, not-for-profit exhibition spaces and institutions from over 20 countries. From familiar and well established names to young, new emerging talents from around the globe, the fair included paintings, installations, sculptures as well as performance art pieces. Aside from classic works by Barry Mcgee, Claire Rojas, Jen Stark, Daniel Arsham or Ed Moses, Untitled introduced us to some new names and fresh […]
