If you're ever in the Miami, Florida area around this time of year, I encourage you schedule your visit during Art Week to see some of the greatest pieces of the 20th and 21st centuries - it truly is an event for all art enthusiasts.
Last week, I attended the 20th edition of Art Basel, which is the sister event to Art Basel held each June in Basel, Switzerland. This year, Art Basel Miami showcased more than 280 prominent galleries taking part from 38 different countries, including North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. I also viewed pieces at the Rubell Museum, owned by longtime collectors and Miami residents, Don and Mera Rubell. In addition, I enjoyed fun dinners, parties, and time with good friends. It was a packed couple of days, but it's well-worth the trip every year.
Here are some photos.
We all admired this installation from Jason Jacques Gallery featuring Moss Children by Kim Simonsson and a scaffolding set up by Urban Umbrella. The green epoxy-covered and flocked clay figures are positioned atop, beneath, besides, and around the scaffolding.
