Art Basel Miami Beach
2016 Survey Exhibits



Art Basel in Miami Beach pursues its third year acknowledging 14 artists and their historical artworks prior to the year 2000. Curated booths by leading galleries from North and South America, Europe and Asia will provide insight into the work of Carmelo Arden Quin, Romare Bearden, Graciela Carnevale, Ibrahim El-Salahi, Margaret Kilgallen, Giorgio Morandi, Howardena Pindell, David Reed, George Rickey, Mimmo Rotella, Betye Saar, Barbara T. Smith, Kishio Suga and Jacques Villeglé.

The Survey sector feature small art historical projects, located throughout Art Basel. Usually they are adjacent to the gallery booth. In the past, these exhibits have been very educational.
They provide a great opportunity to help understand the artists vision. These may include solo presentations by an individual artist, juxtapositions and thematic exhibits from artists representing a range of cultures, generations and artistic approaches. Below are four that will be shown this year.

----------------------------------------------

DC Moore Gallery will feature rare photographic works by Romare Bearden (b. 1911, d. 1988), widely recognized as one of the most innovative visual artists of the 20th century. Centered on Bearden’s ‘Projections’, a series of photostatic enlargements and collages from the 1960s, this exhibition will reflect his interest in Cubism, Dadaism, civil rights, jazz and blues performance, as well as personal memories of the rural South.

----------------------------------------------

Jacques Villeglé’s (b. 1926) series ‘Painting within Non Painting’ created between the 1950s and the end of the 1970s will be on view at Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois. The works reflect Villeglé’s skepticism around ideas of authorship, traditional aesthetics and pre-determination.

----------------------------------------------

At Peter Blum Gallery, early and rarely seen paintings by David Reed (b. 1946) will be paired with a short film that the artist based on a John Wayne Technicolor VistaVision Western. While film has played a pivotal role in influencing Reed’s paintings, much of the public has not known his work as a filmmaker. The gallery’s show will coincide with the opening of a solo exhibition of David Reed’s new paintings at the Perez Art Museum in Miami.

----------------------------------------------

Three monumental paintings – two of which have never been exhibited previously – by Howardena Pindell (b. 1943) at Garth Greenan Gallery will draw upon the artist’s first foray into abstraction. Layered onto unprimed canvases, these works have the appearance of vast fields from which light emanates. Organized under the unifying idea of ritual, Betye Saar’s (b. 1926) presentation at Roberts & Tilton will be centered around her seminal work ‘MTI’ (1973), a freestanding altarpiece fusing Gypsy, Indian and Voodoo cultural symbols. Visitors will be invited to participate in the piece by placing a personal offering at its base. The resulting presentation aims to renegotiate the aestheticization of ritualized action, concepts of power and display, and the relationship between installations and sculpture.

Satellite Art Show - Miami Beach
2016 Second Edition Preview



I consider Satellite’s Art Show to be an intriguing addition to Miami’s Art Fair. Last year they exploded onto the scene with their recognition as an alternative Art Fair. This year, at the Parisian Hotel in Miami Beach, Satellite, offers a variety of art, music, performance, installation, new media and tech.

All performances mentioned in this blog are implemented during normal fair hours. Here is the link for general information on tickets and hours.

You will not want to miss the introduction to Satellite’s Performance Art / Installation. In the U.S. there has been widespread debate over our prevalent cultural and political situation. For those of us who would like an expression to our present state devote yourself to the hotel’s front parking lot for Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw’s site-specific installation and performance piece, F+++ IT, for which the artist duo, in “an homage to the most mundane yet extraordinary ritual of pouring milk into a cereal bowl,” will be performing in a 3,000-gallon fountain of perpetually pouring “milk.” Reacting to the cultural gluttony found within and beyond Art Basel Miami Beach, and to the current political state of the nation at large, the fountain is both despondent and triumphant—a statement of cyclical cynicism and forced acceptance in the form of a ridiculous and absurd gesture.


After entering the hotel take care of yourself and your sensory overload with an arts-focused therapeutic holistic cleaning at the Soothing Center. The Soothing Center is also an "intra-lational" art exhibition that brings together makers and practitioners from New York and Los Angeles to exhibit a special brand of psychoactive art that actively affects the viewer through chemistry, participation, and biohacking by utilizing wearable architecture, video meditations, herbalism, and poetic gestures. The body can recalibrate through poetic gestures, biohacking, and non-traditional mediations. Exercises will include visitors therapeutically ridding themselves of the surplus of assorted fair pamphlets they’ve been half-heartedly carrying around.

If you are too relaxed after visiting the Soothing Center, acquire a drink at Digital Virtual Reality Lounge, located inside the fair lobby’s bar area, and drift off into one of four immersive digital landscapes by acclaimed digital artists Alfredo Salazar Caro, Miyö Van Stenis, Brenna Murphy, Theo Trian, and Rosa Menkman.

Satellite continues to fascinate the visitor as you proceed between exhibitions which have been repurposed into a unique and otherworldly pathway, making visitors’ transitions between floors an exciting and exploratory process.

One such exhibit you will be presented with is, Les Provocateurs, an “afro-futuristic erotica DIY queer cabaret” from New Orleans by Juilliard-trained ballet dancer, Diem Massad Al-Jouni, known also by her performance identity Dangerous Rose.

Another exhibit, FAMOUSONMARS Custom Tattoo Parlor, will be one-part art installation, one-part pop-up shop where everything is for sale and most objects are meant to be worn. Produced in collaboration with Witchoria, the presentation will feature mounted artwork; wearable art objects; and live tattooing with a strong focus on feminism, intersectionality, and social codification.

To conclude a day of extraordinary pleasures, The Pérez Art Museum Miami Contemporaries Penthouse, will offer robust arts programming during standard fair hours as well as after-hours (9 p.m. until late). A musical curation for which NYC outsider music venue Trans-Pecos has been tapped to create a pan-stylistic survey of current musical practice in America. Linking up with record label Loma Vista (Iggy Pop, Marilyn Manson), visitors should expect performances from local rapper Denzel Curry’s ULT crew; NYC punk phenomena Show Me the Body and Sick Feeling; Baltimore-based queen rapper Abdu Ali; and more.

I have faith that Satellite Art Show will transcend, invoke, and inspire the visitor.
