Preview: Basel Week Miami ’09 – Team Gallery x Ryan McGinley

After having been featured by Team Gallery at Art Basel Switzerland, the gallery is bringing Ryan McGinley’s newest works to Art Basel Miami.  The photographs being shown at the fair continues his Moonmilk series (remember his show at Alison Jacques Gallery?) and also includes some images from his most recent road trip.  The settings involve locations deep beneath the earth’s surface and now some on or above it.  They integrate the nude body into scenes of nature, almost blending them into one. More images and […]

Preview: Basel Week Miami ’09 – Sloan Fine Art x Chris Berens

Chris Berens fans attending Art Basel are in for a treat his year as Sloan Fine Art will feature several pieces from him in their booth at SCOPE as a preview to his big New York show opening at their gallery on December 16th. Berens’ soft focus and imaginative work is a result of a unique and time-consuming process and are often homages to the Dutch master painters of yore. We have become increasingly enamored with his work after recent shows in Seattle and Amsterdam […]

Preview: Mark Flood @ Peres Projects – Basel Week Switzerland (Liste)

Mark Flood is a Texan who produces work that mocks popular American culture and the contemporary art world. His signs on cardboard poke fun at the prestige that culture places on paintings, with such messages as “Another Painting” or “25 More Paintings.” His collages of mutated celebrity portraits challenge people’s perceptions of their relationship with “celebrity” – are you interested in the person themselves or their image as depicted in the poster? How is the feedback to your head affected when that picture is tweaked? […]

Preview: Ryan McGinley @ Team Gallery – Basel Week Switzerland

Kicking off our coverage of Art Basel Switzerland, we take a look at the work of Ryan McGinley, quite simply one of the best photographers of his generation and a name you should know and keep an eye out for.
