MIAMI BEACH — In its tenth year, Design Miami again enjoyed a prime location across the street from the center of the Miami universe, Art Basel Miami Beach.
Christian Berst gallery's inaugural exhibition Do the Write Thing: Read Between the Lines is a wake up call to artists who risk losing their art in search of their career.
Maybe I'm too old now to be making all my gifts for people.
This week, art rising to the challenge of our times, Instagram CEO's insane statement, then Jeffrey Deitch's insane statement, Hans Ulrich Obrist is profiled, Miami's museums, purpose of Art Basel Miami Beach, and more.
MIAMI BEACH — Amid all the predictable fare in Art Basel Miami Beach’s Public sector, installed in Collins Park alongside the Bass Museum of Art — your Ernesto Neto hammock contraption, your Justin Matherly concrete-and-walker figure, your shiny bronze Elmgreen & Dragset provocation, your Georg Baselitz primitivist giant — is a set of bravura works by women artists.
This week, The New York Times cheerfully reported on "the leafing of New York": the cityscape transformed by hundreds of thousands of trees planted over the past few decades.
Dorothea Lasky is the Ello of poetry. She gives us poems that are cute and zany, but on a clean, ad-free platform that is friendly, complex, and interpersonally sensitive. She is poetry’s golden mean between radical and legible, romantic and classical, interpersonal and impersonal: in other words, she is uniquely poised to transcend the poetry wars.
I have been thinking about the difficulty of characterizing Michael Mazur in part because, while he became highly celebrated as a printmaker, his paintings have never received nearly the same attention. Once a label is attached, it takes years to remove it.
MIAMI BEACH — Just a 15-minute walk down the road from this year's Art Basel Miami Beach is an exhilarating exhibition of work by 33 female artists. Acting as a foil to the painting and sculpture that dominate the fair(s), the show features only videos and performances, many of which focus on the body.
“There’s a lot of product going on here,” I heard a woman say into her cell phone at the mega-art fair Art Basel Miami Beach 2014. Indeed, $3 billion worth of art is being offered for sale this year, according to the event’s organiz...
Judy Rifka and I met 10 years ago, when I was selecting a work of hers for an exhibition. Her studio was dense with paintings, a testament to how prolific and energetic she is.
“What I am looking for is not happiness. I work solely because it is impossible for me to do anything else.” That’s how Alberto Giacometti summed it up, as told by James Lord in Giacometti: A Biography, published in 1997.
MIAMI — This evening, amid the well-kept art fairs and glitzy parties of Miami Art Week, some 300 people descended on the Miami neighborhood of Wynwood to protest police brutality and the death of artist Israel "Reefa" Hernandez.
We are in Foley square at 6pm, some of thousands gathered the day after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict Daniel Pantaleo for murdering Eric Garner, for putting him in a chokehold that ended his life as Garner pled — 11 times that were caught on camera — “I can’t breathe.”
MIAMI BEACH — Upon entering this year's New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) art fair one immediately appreciates the need for this alternative to the larger, establishment art fair down the beach. Unlike Art Basel, NADA Miami Beach has a casual, approachable feel.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Peer deep into this photograph’s heart, eye, vanishing point. Despite the beauty, no hammered stare, of any length, unlocks meaning or maker. The image (inviolate) defies casual analysis.
This week in art news: Japanese police rearrest the creator of the "vagina kayak," Duncan Campbell was awarded the Turner Prize, and an East Hampton resident pleads guilty to the sale of forged Abstract expressionist paintings.
Earlier this year, as part of the Whitney Biennial, I had my Tarot cards read by Flawless Sabrina.
The history of artistic expression got stretched back a few hundred thousand years this week with the identification of an engraved shell believed to have been carved by Homo erectus. That early human ancestor could rattle the long-held belief that the use of deliberate visual expression is specific to Homo sapiens.
It’s not easy to be a black woman working in the arts. Not on days like today.
