Art Basel Miami - Day 4

By Dina Deitsch

After the big fair, the two of the smaller-scale fair offerings – Pulse and Nada were welcomed visits.

Although the power was in flux during my visit – literally – the lights were dark in about a third of the fair – the energy at Pulse seemed properly pumped. Impulse, Pulse’s smaller side show, featured Boston’s Ellen Miller Gallery who had a solo presentation of everyone’s favorite Deb Todd Wheeler. A boat and remarkableseascapes made out of scans of plastic bagsfilled the booth nicely with a timely and elegant message about landscape. An aisle over, Elizabeth Leach hade a wall of New Hampshire-based Anna von Merten’s hand-stitched quilts from her newest series You and Me which will be on view in the deCordova Biennial this coming January. Subtle white and grey stitching on black fabric sketch out the fluctuating poles of energy. Metaphors of relationships turned a bit more literal with the fair’s fading lights…

Art Basel Miami Beach - Day 3

By Abigail Goodman

For my third day in Miami, I started off at the De La Cruz Collection, the personal museum of Miami collectors Carlos and Rosa De La Cruz. The 30,000 square foot building is impressive itself, and walking through the doors I was immediately in the midst of some stellar work. For instance, just the entrance had a salon hang of paintings by Glenn Ligon, Christopher Wool, Jacob Kassay, Nate Lowman, Wade Guyton, Mark Grotjhan and Seth Price, a giant by David Altmejd and a view to the Ugo Rondinone that had been at the ICA Boston on the Sandra and Gerald Fineberg Art Wall as well as several Thomas Houseagos. Again, I was in the entrance. The commitment of their collecting was evident all around. I was excited to find an installation by Aaron Curry on the 2 floor and was particularly moved by the 3rd floor installation of works by Felix Gonzàlez-Torres, Gabriel Orozco, Jim Hodges, Ana Mendieta and Cesar Trasobares.

Art Basel Miami Beach - Day 2

By Dina Deitsch

Miami – Day Two While Abi was militantly covering the collections and Main Fair – Art Basel – I found myself on a slightly stranger and later schedule, meandering through Art Basel and then in Collins Park late Wednesday night, fighting the rush of human traffic attending the Bass Museum’s Erwin Wurm opening (whose video Am I a House? Is featured in deCordova’s Temporary Structures - up until Dec 31).

But from the beginning. At Art Basel, a few notable installations were the solo projects. Sarah Oppenheimer (another Temporary Structures artist) created a new wall installation of metal and glass that seemed to bend space, literally. As Abi mentioned, Matt Saunders (2012 Biennial) has a near-solo presentation at Harris Lieberman where he is debuting large-scale photographic prints that riff off lost cultural producers – Weimar-era actress Asta Neilson and the writer Robert Musil, famous for his epic, unfinished novel, The Man without...

Art Basel Miami Beach - Day 1

By Abigail Goodman

Day 1 of Art Basel Miami did not disappoint! First stop was the Rubell Collection bright and early at 9 am. American Exuberance, their new exhibit was timely, sincere and impressive. From John Miller and Sterling Ruby, whose respective monumental installation and paintings made up the first two galleries, to the seductive (and early) Jacob Kassay and Analia Saban works, the exhibition boasted a variety of expression and material exploration. Other sure favorites were the John McAllister’s paintings, Hannah Greely’s installation Dual, Dana Schutz's ever painterly and bold canvases, Ruby Neri “naïve” classicism and Kaari Upson’s grotto. Also not to be missed was Jennifer Rubell's food installation Incubation -- servings of homemade yogurt in glass jars and honey dripping from a box on ceiling, leaving visitors to catch their sweetness as it falls to earth.
