I made it to Art Miami and Art Context on opening night. It was jammed…There was a lot of talk about the Banksy pieces which were apparently taken from “the streets” of the Middle East and brought here for exhibit and sale. However you feel about the removal and placement, I think most people will agree that the pieces didn’t seem to play well in this context. And, for Banksy, isn’t context what it’s all about? But I digress…
Untitled was a beautiful fair. The ocean view from inside (and out) was incredible and the translucent top to the tent filled the space with nice even light. I heard there were some issues at night, but I didn’t have a chance to see this for myself. Hopefully next year they figure it out. Overall a well curated fair and a welcomed addition to the area.
Check back tomorrow, I’ll post images from NADA and Seven. – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher
Disclaimer: I tried to capture the energy surrounding the event and a few works that caught my eye. There is obviously so much more I could have posted. Hopefully this gives you a good taste. Enjoy!
