We’re bringing you closer look at last week’s Art Basel Miami that was held at Miami Beach Convention Center between December 5th – 8th, with leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa showing work from artists on their rosters. For this recap, we wanted to show you some of the most talked about and most original gallery booths, such as Skarstedt’s, which revealed new canvases by David Salle and KAWS among other impressive works. A few of our other favorite picks include the David Kordansky […]

Mirroring an exhibition (covered) several months ago at the Paul Stolper Gallery in London was a display of Damien Hirst’s oversized pharmaceuticals at their Art Basel Miami booth. 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.

After flying into Miami, AM headed straight to the main fair to see what the new year had to offer at Art Basel. With over 250 of the world’s most prestigious galleries participating and over 70,000 visitors each year, the sheer amount of art certainly cannot be encompassed in one article. Here is part I of our coverage with some snapshots of things that caught our eye like the impressive Urs Fischer installation at the Sadie Coles HQ booth mirroring the exhibition at the end of […]
The “main fair” as it is affectionately called by art lovers in Miami is of course the centerpiece of Art Basel Week. Not just prestigious by namesake or by the list of illustrious galleries, but more so the high level of art exhibited by the artists who want to put forward their best work. As always, it felte like there was so much blue-chip goodness, but so little time at Art Basel. From Kapoor (seen above), Colen, Martin, De Kooning, Chamberlain, Pruitt, Houseago, Creed, Auerbach, Kusama to Longo, just to […]
Today marked the official opening of the Art Basel main fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center, but yesterday was the exclusive First Choice & Vernissage where a majority of the high profile buying action took place. AM took its annual pilgrimage to Florida to catch the offical launch of Art Basel Week Miami as the flagship fair launched with a slew of household names such as Murakami (seen above), Miro, Koons, Emin, Longo, Calder, Tomaselli, Kusama, Sherman, Nara, Basquiat and many more were featured at one of […]
As most in the art world knows, Basel Week Switzerland is underway. While not everyone can make the two hour trek over to check what looks to be an epic showing from KAWS, you should stop by SCOPE after checking out the main fair. Thinkspace Gallery is featuring seductive new paintings from Audrey Kawasaki (interviewed) at their booth in a mini-solo. Check out some more preview images below… Discuss this show here.

Another booth we enjoyed at the main fair this year during Basel Week Miami was the work on display from Paul Kasmin Gallery featuring an eclectic mix of artists like Ivan Navarro (above), Kenny Scharf, Walton Ford, David LaChapelle, Erik Parker, and more. In particular, we enjoyed the special section from Navarro which included a set of optical illusion-based works from the Impenetrable series (made from fluorescent lights, resin, mirror) that mesmerized viewers as they peered down into the “depths.” Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
During our stroll through the seemingly endless array of booths and artwork during Art Basel in Miami, we were stopped dead in our tracks by the solo from the late Jiro Takamatsu at McCaffrey Fine Art. The influential Japanese artist was known as a writer, sculptor, painter and printmaker with this showing focusing in on his famous shadow pieces. Although the booth was dominated by his large-scale portraiture, we were particularly drawn to his smaller works like the key shadows hanging from a hook as well as a dollhouse […]
The only thing you need to know about Matthew Marks Gallery is that it represents Jasper Johns, (arguably) the greatest living artist in the world. Looking further, you will see that the gallery also represents other top artists as well. Its booth at Art Basel this year includes an orange, two-panel painting by Ellsworth Kelly, new sculptures by Charles Ray and Katharina Fritsch, three recent paintings by Paul Sietsema, new sculptures by Darren Almond, as well as pieces by Willem de Kooning, Luigi Ghirri, Thomas Demand, […]
