ONCE AGAIN AND FOR THE SIXTEENTH TIME ART BASEL TOOK PLACE IN MIAMI BEACH.
The ‘Capital of Latin America’, home to 20 important private collections and museum dedicated to contemporary art, over 15 interesting independent art spaces and more than 200 galleries, has been last week the hub one of the busiest art weeks in the world.
This Sunday, December 10, 2017, Art Basel closed with a robust attendance from international collectors and institutions. This year’s show saw the debut of a new floor plan and show design, which was widely praised by exhibitors and collectors alike, featuring 268 premier galleries from 32 countries, who presented outstanding works, ranging from Modern masterpieces to contemporary painting, sculpture, performance, photography, works on paper and film – some of which were created specifically for the fair.
We have been overwhelmed by installations and all the events happening in town and here’s a list of our highlights Prada Double Club by scientist and artist Carsten Hoeller with a three-night-only collaboration with Milan-based arts institution Fondazione Prada: the piece is set in a 1920s film studio complex, formerly an ice factory, and comprises of an internal club and an outdoor tropical garden; the “Vocabulary of Solitude” (2014-2016), an installation of 45 life-size clown figures, each engaged in a different everyday activity, such as sleeping, daydreaming, waking up, sitting and running by Ugo Rondinone at The Bass Museum; Untitled Art focusing on curatorial balance and integrity across all discipline of contemporary art; the giant egg called The Orb by architect Allan Shulman on 14th street; the vibe at Faena hotel, Nautilus, The Edition. And the pool at The Standard Hotel overviewing Miami Downtown.
Goodbye Miami, home of colorful neons and pastelle buildings.
