A View of Miami Art Week from a Slumpie (and a Smartphone)

by Audrey L. Phillips
Is it really necessary to physically be present at an art fair anymore to see the art in it? If I’m honest, the best place for me to view a fair is scrolling comfortably through Instagram on my phone, in my bed. I’ve curated a bubble for myself, following galleries, artists, and internet personas who do all the work for me. Oftentimes I find that the art looks better online than it does in person, well-photographed and Photoshopped as it is, or because of the allure the persona attached to the post brings. But I am still here, in Miami for Art Week, physically participating in the vi... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: Miyö Van Stenis

by Christian Petersen
Miyö Van Stenis is a Venezuelan new media artist currently based in France. Her work explores of the ubiquity and influence of technology, often seen through a strong socio-political lens. An interest in political themes, frequently related to her home country, gives her work an uncommon and vital weight in the world of new media art. In turn, by presenting these themes through digital and web-based interfaces her work has a unique relatability that other mediums might struggle to achieve. Van Stenis’ work is included in two shows at Satellite art fair during Art Basel Miami Beac... [more]

The Miami Art Fairs: Here’s What You Need to Know

by The Artslant Team
Closing out what can only be described as a relentlessly brutal year, the excesses that are Art Basel Miami Beach and Co. find themselves in the unenviable position of celebrating surfeit in a time of global angst and suffering. But who are we kidding? A sinking shoreline, mosquito-borne pathogens, and a fascist president-elect aren’t stopping this party. Yes, facing the indulgences of Miami Art Week might get you feeling a bit more existential than usual—even in the best of years, Miami’s the source of many a perplexing Why does this exist? moment. So, in the smallest of... [more]

The Must-See Museum Shows during Miami Art Week

by Neil Vazquez
Art Basel attracts seasonal art world devotees to eat, drink, and spend incredible amounts of money on contemporary art at fairs pitched across Miami Beach and the mainland. Running concurrently with the fairs is Miami Art Week, an amalgamation of the city’s best museum and gallery shows, vying for international attention. In recent years the local museum scene has gone from sparse to highly competitive. The Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is not quite four years old, and the two-year-old Institute of Contemporary (ICA) is already nipping at its heels with its top-notch programming. These, pl... [more]

Natalia Zuluaga Kicks Off ArtCenter/South Florida’s Latest Chapter with “An Image”

by Audrey L. Phillips
When ArtCenter/South Florida opened on Lincoln Road in 1984, in the heart of South Beach, the street was “nearly abandoned and severely dilapidated.” Today the center, which hosts exhibitions, classes, and a studio residency program, is credited with kickstarting the revitalization of the mall and its surrounding area. Following the appointment of Natalia Zuluaga as Artistic Director this August, ArtCenter itself is getting something of a revitalization. Dynamic changes are underway as the promising Bard Center for Curatorial Studies graduate begins her tenure with an ambitious ex... [more]

The Artist Positioning Himself as Richter’s Crown Prince

by Edo Dijksterhuis
Next year Eberhard Havekost turns fifty: time to balance the books. The press release for his current solo at KINDL positions Havekost “among the most important German artists of his generation.” The artist himself probably doesn’t agree with an accolade this generic, especially when it’s accompanying the kind of self-confident display of painterly power that is Inhalt. The show takes up two full floors and doesn’t leave much wall space unused. The works on show are so diverse, they could have been created by three or four different artists. Most recognizable as Ha... [more]
