by
6/5/13 Posted 6/5/13

Halfway through the 5th round of the 2013 ArtSlant Prize, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back and see where previous ArtSlant Prize winners are in their careers. Wow! What a group! Biennales, Public and Private Collections, new galleries and more prizes! This group is getting at it! Many thanks to these great artists who have stuck with us over the years. We are very excited to hear of all the great things they are up to! ArtSlant Prize 200... [more]

20130425071223-1 Watchlist Artist: Kanako Sasaki  
by
Kanako Sasaki at DINA MITRANI GALLERY 4/25/13 Posted 4/25/13

Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present Kanako Sasaki: Illuminations (how not to forget) with an artist talk on Thursday April 11th at 7pm. The exhibition, the artist’s second solo show at the gallery, will be on view through May 24th and consists of photographic images as well as a video. During the time that the artist was beginning this recent series, the eastern coast of Japan was devastated by a massive earthquake and tsunami. These images are a response to the emotional loss that was ca... [more]

Georges Braque, Anthony Caro, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Anish Kapoor, Jeff Koons, Louise Nevelson, Yoko Ono at Bass Museum of Art March 15th, 2013 - July 21st, 2013
Posted 3/19/13

Occasionally we are given a glimpse into the artist as mere mortal.  The same men and women who produce art that is sold for millions at auction and are discussed and dissected for hours by scholars and the common man do, indeed, walk among us; and “From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler” is proof.   The most admired and glorified modern and contemporary artists are also jewelers.  Who knew?  And this small, yet impressive, exhibition is a precious reminder that art need not take on static ob...

20121122005419-10__112112 Bill Viola is a Mad Genius  
by
Bill Viola at Museum of Contemporary Art - North Miami (MOCA NOMI) December 5th, 2012 - March 3rd, 2013
Posted 3/12/13

Bill Viola’s “Liber Insularum” is, in a word, powerful.  It brings to mind the transcendental power of Ann Hamilton’s recent Park Avenue Armory show, “The Event of a Thread,” where billowy white curtains coupled with pulley supported swings worked in concert with the monotonous readings of philosophical and spiritual prose.  Here, instead of integrating the viewer into a strange world created through participatory installation, Viola uses digital media as a tool to directly communicate with and ev...

Posted 3/4/13

All the world’s a stage and it’s not just the Oscars, but the contemporary art fairs of late, who are commanding it.   I, for one, have been a reluctant participant in this global drive for exposing contemporary art to the masses.  But thanks to Art Miami LLC and its director, Nick Korniloff, I too have become a member of the captivated audience of the art fair. Art Wynwood is its star and has given sunny Miami an event that lives up to the hype of its current art scene, one often written about bu... [more]

by
Alexandra Rowley at DINA MITRANI GALLERY 3/2/13 Posted 3/2/13

Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present 'Alexandra Rowley: Process', the artist's second solo exhibition at the gallery. The photographs in the exhibition are a myriad of images, figurative and abstract alike, illustrating the concept of transformation. The artist explores the experience of “process” through different media and materials including her body, her studio, her home, her year-old child and the planet. The work speaks of the endless cycles of creation, fruition, and destruction. T... [more]

Kinke Kooi, Everything is Vain, 2011; acrylic paint, marker, graphite on paper; 30.25 x 22.375 Kinke Kooi: before yesterday I wasn’t at all familiar with her work or her name, but doesn’t it just have a ring to it? Kinke Kooi. I walked into Feature Inc. with my friend Daniel Feinberg and immediately being at Basel felt better, the anxiety lifted. Kinke Kooi’s work resonates and it quickly became clear that I didn’t need to know anything about her because I knew everything standing in front of th... [more]

DOING IT RIGHT: ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH by Joel Kuennen Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) is the mother of American art fairs (you know this by now). Celebrating a decade this year, ABMB has, from the beginning, been a city-wide event. Every year, a new satellite fair/festival/happening/event is added to the already art-packed weekend and yet it seems Miami has an art tolerance on par with your average Baseler’s liver. ABMB became the destination par excellence in the art world, not only as... [more]

ALTERNATIVE MOONS: Experiences on the Outer Fringe by Natalie Hegert Imagine Art Basel Miami Beach is a planet. It is after all, the big centralizing force to which all other early December Miami fairs, events, and exhibitions compare themselves. Those are usually referred to as satellite fairs: orbiting moons. Some of these moons are quite large, and orbit in close proximity to the Basel planet, while others are mere specks out on the fringe. Some of these moons have quite erratic, elliptical orbits, spinning i... [more]

VERNISSAGE BARRAGE by Nathaniel Sandler Art Basel: a beautiful hodgepodge of disheveled gallery assistants and even more disheveled millionaires. For those who have never been, Art Basel Miami Beach is one of the largest annual contemporary art fairs in the world. The main event and the countless satellite fairs around the city attract the rich and the hip from all over, who are in a constant incestuous competition to feel like they’re hanging out with one another. It’s a cultured and... [more]

I went to the Appropriated Gender opening on Saturday night. So many interesting works of art were spread across three floors, from Kandy Lopez's attitude-filled giant portraits to the thoughtful craft-inspired works of Martin Casuso, an adorable painting ("Kissable") of one of JC Bravo's big-headed cabezones and a latch-hook rug by Kathleen Kranack that will remind you, "It's Your Fault."  Artist Karla Caprali has three works in Appropriated Gender. I could go on about some of the works, which include sculpture, insta... [more]

(Image: Brad Bixler, Organic Relief 046, 2011, Organic Plant Flesh; © Brad Bixler)   Brad Bixler (b. 1966, SanFrancisco, CA) Creating Organic sculptures starts a unique relationship with Nature. By removing the fallen Organic material from its natural environment, and for a moment harnessing its life energy, I quickly move to the process.  Molding, ripping and tearing the plant flesh, after the shape is formed, the embalmment for the afterlife begins. Like a mortician preparing a corpse, t... [more]
