Streets / Basel Week Miami ’10: Jeff Soto

Our friend Jeff Soto’s (featured) just sent over photos of some of his escapades in Miami with his old graffiti partner Maxx242. In town for Art Basel Week (he is painting a mural for Wynwood Walls and is listed for Primary Flight), you can be sure the Sotofish sure knows how to have a good time (see last year).  Stay away from the alligators this time!

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Art Basel First Look

After months of anticipation, the time has finally come for the curtains to be drawn back and the show to begin at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach. Prior to the public opening tomorrow, December 2nd, today marked Vernissage day, which allowed exclusive press access to the massive Miami Beach Convention Center. The excitement was palpable, as we enjoyed scouring the grounds and taking in all the artwork lining the walls from some of the most prestigious galleries the world over. Considering this is just […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
