Basel Week Miami ’14: Wunderkammern @ SCOPE

With Basel Week Miami in the rear view mirror, AM will now take time to highlight some of the individual artists and booths that caught our attention. One particular gallery’s offerings that we quite enjoyed at SCOPE (covered) was from Rome’s Wunderkarmmern, especially Mark Jenkins’ (interviewed) clever sculptural work (seen above). On display were also Aakash Nihalani’s geometric musings and Dan Witz’s street based pieces. See all our coverage of Basel Week Miami here. Discuss Mark Jenkins here. Discuss Aakash Nihalani here.

Another fair we visited while in Miami was the tenth edition of Aqua. Featuring emerging and mid-career artists, the unique setting was a classic South Beach hotel that opened its rooms to collectors and exhibitors for the duration of Basel Week Miami.

Works ranged from art stars such as Israel Lund, Mary Weatherford, and Jon Rafman, to newer ones, such as Darja Bajagić, Mike Bouchet, and Peter Sutherland.

Focusing on emerging and midcareer contemporary art (over 200 exhibiting artists from 18 different countries), the Untitled. satellite fair was back for Basel Week Miami with their tent situated nicely on the beach.

The Schizophrenogenesis works consist of sculptural renditions that are an extension of his pill cabinet pieces as well as his fascination with the medical field as well as screen prints.
