Andrew Hem – “Dreams Towards Reality” Book Signing @ Nucleus Gallery

At this weekend’s Giant Robot Post It 8 show (previewed), those with a good eye and a bit of detective work would have noticed some of Andrew Hem’s (interviewed) work in a very unfamiliar style. We will show you more of this later but for now, here is a look back to Andrew’s book signing (previewed) at the end of October where there was a generous display of his more familiar original work. On this night, Andrew also took his time to sign and draw for […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: The Miami Project – Highlights

AM found time to visit another fair in Midtown Miami, the inaugural Miami Project earlier this week. Unlike most new fairs, we were impressed by their solid lineup of respected galleries and great facilities. This is perhaps this is due to the experience of the fair’s organizers, artMRKT Productions, who have already held fairs Houston, San Francisco, and the Hamptons. Check out the selection of works below and the a piece from Mel Bochner above… Discuss Basel Week Miami here.

Basel Week Miami ’12: Art Basel Highlights – Part 1

The first art fair AM rolled into at this year’s fairs in Miami was the main Art Basel event. During the early buyer’s preview, we caught many collectors rushing Black Friday style into to their favorite galleries for a chance to buy works from their favorite artists. This was not only the perfect time to beat the crowds see the standout works, but also for celebrity watching as they made their rounds looking for their blue chip artwork. Check out a look at the opening day action […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: “It Ain’t Fair” / OHWOW

Earlier tonight, the OHWOW Gallery presented the fifth and final edition to their annual It Ain’t Fair group show during Basel Week Miami.

Basel Week Miami ’12: SCOPE – Highlights

This morning, we stopped by to check out one of the other satellite fairs in Miami – SCOPE. The large complex featured many of the galleries and artists that we are familiar with as well as some new discoveries. Also attached to the fair was its usual partner – Art Asia which we will cover in a followup article.  For now, check out all the images including a stunning portrait from Sas Christian (ab0ve).

Basel Week Miami ’12: CONTEXT Art Miami – Highlights

Despite with the brazen display of jacked Banksy’s at the new CONTEXT Art Miami, there was a pretty good selection of work displayed. As with most fairs, there were artists that we recognized which have been featured on the pages of AM before and also new artists to be discovered that we were excited about. For example, check out the Jorge Santos piece (seen above) that was at the 101/Exhibit booth (more on the rest of their lineup later). For, now enjoy a overview of […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: “Banksy Out of CONTEXT” @ CONTEXT Art Miami

Sure to rile up true street art fans everywhere, the CONTEXT Art Miami fair has gone ahead and approved the display of works purported to be pieces from Banksy (no Pest Control authentication obviously) taken from around the world (Israel, England, Los Angeles and San Francisco). Arranged by gallerist Stephan Keszler of Southampton, the works are placed strategically throughout the complex of tents, perhaps used by the fair to garner attention as it is a new offshoot of Art Miami. The showing appears to attempt to deflect blame […]

Basel Week Miami ’12: Michael Kohn Gallery

With the press preview this morning opening up the main fair at Basel Week Miami, the crew at AM headed to South Beach to check out all the blue-chip galleries and their offerings for 2012. Although there is an overwhelming of art to show you, we have start somewhere and this year it is the Michael Kohn booth. Check out their varied selections of work including a meat sculpture from Mark Ryden, a beautiful new painting from Camille Rose Garcia, as well as works from […]

Basel Week Miami ’12 / Openings: “Time Evaporates, Emotion Elevates” @ Wynwood Walls

Earlier this evening, AM stopped by Wynwood Walls to check out the opening of the Time Evaporates, Emotion Elevates group exhibition inside the new Nicewalk Gallery space. The show featured backlit lenticular paintings (or photos) alongside some original works from selected artists (Aiko, Ron English, Swoon, How & Nosm, Logan Hicks, Kenny Scharf, Futura) who have painted murals at the complex. The title comes from a quote from Tony Goldman (founder of Wynwood Walls), who recently passed, with whom many of the artists included had an especially […]

Openings: “Tonight We Won’t Be Bored” – 10 Years Of V1 Gallery

With all the great art that is scattered all over the world, it’s not often that you can see works from prominent artists in your home town – and even less likely you see them side by side. That is exactly the scenario we have in Copenhagen at the V1 Gallery as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a massive group show entitled Tonight We Won’t Be Bored. Take for example the wall above that has pieces from Todd James, Futura, DearRainDrop, and Kenny Scharf that […]
