This year’s Basel Week Miami wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Aqua Art Miami fair in the Wynwood district. Chock full of visual goodies from galleries we know and love to some newly discovered ones that are now on the AM radar. It was treat to experience some great art at this fair. Check out all the images including several pieces from Jin Young Yu (interviewed & seen above) after the jump.

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 […]
The AM crew stopped by the SCOPE Fair to take a look at the geometric paper sculptures by Jen Stark during Art Basel Week. The Miami-based artist was showing off her eye-catching pieces of what appear to be precise paper cutouts at the Carol Jazzar Gallery booth. Even after staring at her work for a long while, we still could not really figure out how she was able produce such complex creations. See for yourself, after the jump…
Last week, we brought you photos from the Rubell Family’s exhibition – “Beg Borrow and Steal” in Miami during Art Basel Week. To round out the coverage, check out this video footage by Vernissage TV as they record the work from this show exploring the role of appropriation throughout modern and contemporary art.

When down in Miami for Art Basel, we went with our friends The Art Collectors to the Bass Museum of Art to see the exhibition by Chicago-based artist Dzine. Suffice to say that Dzine truly brought it for this museum show, which included eye-popping installations and paintings, proving that he is an artist to watch. As always, The Art Collectors has written up an intelligent and in-depth post with extensive photos, so check it out here. Discuss Art Basel week here.
As you wonder through the endless booths at all the different fairs at Art Basel, you often chance on some unexpected new artists. One of those moments for us this year was San Francisco-based Misa Inaoka and her mutant bird sculptures exhibiting with Johansson Projects at the NADA art fair. Not only did each unique sculpture seem to be created from some strange animal part junkyard, but the pieces had motorized joints and twisted intermittently. More images after the jump…
The Jeff Koons – LACMA $25 million train project previously reported here appears to have hit a snag on the rails, err road. The idea may have sounded great several years ago, but with the current economic climate and in light of the decline of museum’s investment portfolio and donations, the project has been delayed and may be shelved completely.

For those that missed Brendan Monroe’s (interviewed) solo at Richard Heller Gallery last month (covered), you also missed out on a fantastic “constellation” installation. Fortunately for you, we recorded some footage of all the hanging sculptures for you to enjoy. As an added bonus, check out another video of the back room in the gallery space that included a sitting sculpture and wall installation after the jump…
If you have been following our coverage, you will know that many of our previews this year for Art Basel Week were from the SCOPE fair. This is because many of the galleries and artists we follow decided to make a showing there. We stopped by to take a look today and snapped some pics to share with you all. This large “finger-cutting” installation from Judith Supine certainly held our attention at the New Image Art booth. Take a look at what else caught our […]
Earlier today, Art Basel Miami held it’s media preview and AM was on hand enjoy the biggest art show in North America. Much like last year’s Basel (here), the seemingly endless columns of blue chip galleries provided a tsunami of top notch art work for all that will attend this high caliber show. We only had a few hours to run down the aisles, so enjoy this first look at the goodies. We’ll be back soon enough with an in-depth look when we take our time […]
