Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Dabs Myla

Street activity has definitely been strong during Art Basel Week Miami, and this is one of the things that sets it apart from the more prestigious original fair in Switzerland. While walking through the myriad of streets where murals were being put up, we passed by Aussie couple Dabs Myla as they painted this piece. The wall was sponsored by LRG and was almost completed by the time the sun went down yesterday. More photos after the jump…

We passed by the Kohn Compound yesterday as we strolled through the Wynwood District in Miami and came across Remi/Rough working on one of outer walls and gate.

Basel Week Miami ’11: Andrew Schoultz Summary

Art Basel Week in Miami certainly has seen their fair share of Andrew Schoultz’s work with no less than five opportunities (six if you count his outdoor mural for Primary Flight) to admire the Bay Area artist’s work.

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Art Focus: Tracey Snelling

Since we are covering Art Basel Week Miami right now, this week’s new artist for our Art Focus is from the PULSE Art Fair showing at the Rena Bransten Gallery booth. Tracey Snelling is a Bay Area artist who creates mixed media installations incorporating photographs, miniature constructions of buildings or towns, video screens, and projections. We saw this amazing piece painstakingly constructed by Ms. Snelling that included advertising signage, loops of videos, ambient light, graffiti, and other details that encourage us to speculate on the […]

Basel Week Miami: “Here Lies Georges Wildenstein” @ Primary Projects

A couple nights ago, the Primary Projects space in Miami’s Design District hosted Here Lies Georges Wildenstein, a group show featuring Marc Bijl, Retna, Michael Vasquez, Miru Kim, Cleon Peterson, George Sánchez-Calderón, Manny Prieres, Andrew Nigon, Scott Shannon, Christina Pettersson, Shelter Serra, How & Nosm, Kenton Parker, Cole Sternberg, Edouard Nardon, & Jel Martine. The reference to the death of Wildenstein is metaphor for the “old money” powering the art world along with “the mass of collectors, curators, museum trustees (those who wield considerable socio-political powers)” over […]

Basel Week Miami ’11 / Streets: Eine & ROA for DIY // MIA

While on our way to hit up a plethora of shows associated with Art Basel Week Miami last night at the Design District, we passed by the The Living Room installation. The two-wall open structure is a whimsical and out-of-scale replica of a living room at an intersection that had been rundown as of late, but has been revitalized for this year’s art extravaganza with murals from Ben Eine and ROA for the three day music and art event  DIY // MIA sponsored by AE District Gallery, AlmostFamous.com, […]

Basel Week Miami ’11: Seonna Hong @ Lebasse Projects / PULSE

One of the first things that caught our eye as we strolled through PULSE in Miami was the new works from Seonna Hong at the Lebasse Projects booth. She put together a nice installation of the paint chip works as well as included some larger bear paintings for this showing. Interestingly enough, she worked some text into some of the pieces.

Basel Week Miami ’11: Underbelly Show

Last night, AM attended the opening of the Underbelly show in Miami featuring an impressive lineup of artists who all have participated in the surreptitious underground street art and graffiti project in New York. Not only did each artist contribute a quality work to the show, most of them were large scale. Anchoring the exhibition near the entrance was a wall of flatscreen TV’s all simultaneously playing high speed timelapse loops of the artists as they worked on murals for the project. Many more photos […]
