Basel Week Miami ’10: Kate Moss Portfolio @ Danzinger Projects

Images of Kate Moss are a welcome sight anywhere they spring up. Such was the case with the 11 photographs on display at the Danzinger Projects (previewed) booth during PULSE Miami. Forming a limited edition portfolio of hand picked shots from throughout her storied 20+ year career, the iconic images provided a welcome respite from the sometimes overwhelming barrage of artwork more synonymous with Art Basel Week. With work from such venerable photographers as Chuck Close, Juergen Tell, and Annie Leibovitz, and packaging designed by […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Sprüth Magers

Sprüth Magers – based out of Berlin and London – certainly brought back to the states work by some of America’s best artists.  Their booth included a prominent sculpture by Sterling Ruby, a painting by artist-of-the-hour George Condo (whose paintings seemed to be everywhere at the fair this year), a photo by Cindy Sherman, a large text-based installation by Jenny Holzer, instantly-recognizable John Baldessari and Barbara Kruger pieces, and a painting by Jeff Koons.  See them for yourself after the jump… More after the jump…

Streets: Blu for Los Angeles MOCA (Buffed)

If you blinked, you would have missed Blu’s newest mural in Los Angeles. Invited to by the MOCA to paint a wall ahead of it’s highly anticipated “Art in the Streets” exhibition in April, the museum apparently had forgotten that the Italian street sensation made his name making pointed political statements with his large-scale work, often site-specific and aimed directly at the local governments and/or corporations. With the piece facing a Veterans Administration building, the museum (with or without Deitch) decided to buff over the […]

Preview: Martin Wittfooth – “Gardens” @ Roq La Rue Gallery

This Friday, December 10th, Martin Wittfooth will be bringing a new body of work entitled Gardens to the Roq la Rue Gallery. Exhibiting alongside Mike Brown, Wittfooth paints his animalia from a different viewpoint – in a faded world where it seems the time of man has passed and all that is left are rusted monuments and infrastructure, the last vestiges of the human race. More preview images after the jump…

Take a look at the short, but interesting trailer that Joshua made in […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: Wynwood Walls

Last year, Wynwood Walls started out as an ambitious project to revive and reclaim the worndown Wynwood Arts District with art. This year, Tony Goldman upped the ante by expanding the project space with new works and installations by Ryan McGinness, Invader, Kenny Scharf, Ron English (featured), Jeff Soto’s (featured), Logan Hicks (interviewed), Friends With You and Shepard Fairey. In addition, a restaurant and a project gallery space were also created on-site to keep onlookers submerged in the arts. After checking out the space during […]

Preview / Setup: Andrew Schoultz – “Melt Down” @ Project Space

Working efficiently in the wake of his solo a few months back, Compound Eyes of the World (covered), Andrew Schoultz is ready to reveal a new body of work tomorrow, December 9th at Project Space in Los Angeles. Opening at the collaborative gallery effort between Arkitip and Incase, Melt Down will call upon all of the San Francisco artist’s vast mixed-media talents. Centered around a massive tank installation and a series of giant wall murals, it appears Schoultz will be modernizing his imagery a bit, […]

Basel Week Miami ’10 – Faurschou

Walking into Copenhagen and Beijing-based Faurschou’s booth at Art Basel Miami Beach was like walking into a carefully-curated, intimate museum show.  With pieces by Ai Weiwei (including a half-million dollar sunflower pile that was created pre-Tate), Cai Guo-Qiang, Robert Rauschenberg, and Lucian Freud, everywhere you looked, you saw near-masterpieces.  They certainly brought out the big guns, which you will see after the jump…
