Images of Kate Moss are a welcome sight anywhere they spring up. Such was the case with the 11 photographs on display at the Danzinger Projects (previewed) booth during PULSE Miami. Forming a limited edition portfolio of hand picked shots from throughout her storied 20+ year career, the iconic images provided a welcome respite from the sometimes overwhelming barrage of artwork more synonymous with Art Basel Week. With work from such venerable photographers as Chuck Close, Juergen Tell, and Annie Leibovitz, and packaging designed by […]
Come next week, the ubiquitous UK supermodel Kate Moss will be trading the fashion show for the art fair. Debuting at Miami’s contemporary art fair PULSE, the model will be unveiling a portfolio of 11 of her most precious images personally picked from two decades worth of material, each shot by a different photographer. Curated in collaboration with James Danzinger over the past year and a half, the portfolio designed by Ruth Ansel will be released as a limited edition of 30 sets and will […]
Further adding weight to the significance and diversity of Art Basel Miami Beach, David B. Smith Gallery will bring a solo exhibition of new work from mixed-media sculptor Gregory Euclide to the venerable PULSE Art Fair. Marking the sixth edition for the well-known contemporary art event, the new body of work will be exhibited as part of the IMPULSE section of the fair, where a single emerging artist will be awarded the PULSE Prize for their excellence. Euclide’s unique brand of assemblage-based sculpting utilizes an […]
Everyone knows the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” where a picky little girl chooses between different bowls of hot cereal etc. to find the one that suits her. Well, sometimes we feel kinda like Goldilocks at art fairs, where some feel too big and others too small. However, more often than not, during the weeks of Art Basel and Armory, Pulse is the one that fits just right, and this year was no exception. As far as size goes, Pulse got it right […]
We always look forward to the Pulse art fair because it is one of the only opportunities for those outside of Tokyo or Los Angeles to see the stunning carved woodblocks of Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono. This year at Pulse Miami, Yokono’s work was jointly shown by LA’s Mark Moore Gallery and Vienna’s Hilger Contemporary. Along with the new black and red pieces we previewed before the fair, the two galleries showed several works from Yokono’s recent “Dreamy Gaze” series, which featured lovely young ladies […]
Sometimes, it takes stepping out of your comfort zone to get a fresh perspective on the way one views art. That is what Pulse did for us in Miami. From the moment we entered the fair, we noticed many galleries and artists that we weren’t accustomed to viewing. We constantly found ourselves stopping and asking more questions about “what is that?” and “who made it?” than any other fair during Art Basel Week. A truly rewarding experience. Check out all the visual nuggets we dug up after […]
Los Angeles’ Mark Moore Gallery sent us a few preview images of works by Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono that will be shown at their booth at Pulse Miami 09. Yokono’s graphic and often grotesque woodblocks – which are carved and painted, but not printed – garnered him invitations to several of Takashi Murakami’s early Geisai fairs, but it wasn’t until Yokono’s self-sponsored installation at Pulse NYC 06 that he started getting attention outside of Japan. Since then, Yokono has shown several times with Mark Moore […]
