Art Basel Miami Beach has been a week of fascination and inspiration. I always look forward to this time of year because the vibe of Miami breathes a new life into the art world after a year of busy gallery and curator schedules.
One of my personal highlights from the week so far was Tracey Emin’s Angel Without You exhibition (below); it was enlivening. It was incredible to see her neon light series again. MOCA gave a beautiful show.
The Poster Series added a freshness to Art Basel. Jean Pigozzi and André Saraiva cast Maurizio Cattelan, Damien Hirst, and Takashi Murakami as their official poster boys.
W magazine and Stefano Tonchi, along with Goga Ashkenazi, presented an amazing night dedicated to the insane and fanciful illusion that is always Tim Walker. Walker debuted Suspension of Disbelief in celebration of the new Pérez Art Museum. It’s always fun to see what Walker will pull out of his mad hatter’s hat.
The NADA Miami Beach fair was such a highlight. Its attention to underexposed artists brings constant new life to our world.
So much happening in so few days…. I always love coming to Miami. Sun and art, what more can you want?
