Artist Spotlight: Nate Young at Untitled

by Jesi Khadivi
Minneapolis-based artist Nate Young’s recent sculptures and graphite drawings borrow equally from the diagrams of Swiss linguist and semiotician Ferdinand de Saussure, and from the visual material that the artist’s father uses in his sermons. Young evacuates all text from these diagrams, displaying them as pure form. At first glance, the gesture seems to undermine the didactic authority that these diagrams might possess. Sheree Hovsepian and Nate Young, installation view, Monique Meloche... [more]

Exhibiting in Nowheresville: Neon Heater's Infinity Pool Party at North Beach

by Natalie Hegert
In the Art Basel Miami Beach universe, North Beach might as well be a galaxy away. And this year there has been a reshuffling of Art Basel’s satellites, as NADA jumps ship from the Deauville Resort to Mid-Beach’s Fontainebleau, and Miami Project moves in from mainland Miami, joining forces with Art on Paper at the Deauville. Further north, (practically Pluto in the Miami Beach solar system) there is Satellite: a new fair with an experimental model, scattering artist-run projects, a digital... [more]

Miami Art Week Guide, Part I: Art Fairs Aplenty

by The Artslant Team
It’s impossible to keep a Miami Art Week guide “concise.” The number of fairs alone—at last count 21, —will make any list scroll on and on. So we're not even trying. Instead, we’re splitting our guide into two: one for fairs and one for everything else. This guide will get you acquainted with the city’s seasonal guests: those itinerant behemoths that turn up and transform the town for one week out of the year. Unless you’re a masochist (and who knows, you might be, we’re not judging), there’s... [more]

Queer Biennial I Opens During Art Basel Miami Beach

by Eva Recinos
With a flurry of activity already under way in this year’s Miami Beach Art Basel, it’s no surprise that some artist groups are creating their own activities outside of the huge event. Described as “an unabashed exhibition of queerness,” the is taking place during Art Basel weekend at the Hôtel Gaythering. The Hotel is known as a meeting place for Miami’s LGBT locals and is the area’s only hotel that caters solely to this community. The space is transformed with more than 100 artworks from 35... [more]

On the Fear and Reality of Missing Out: Art Basel Miami Beach, Day 1

by Rob Goyanes
Last night, the poignancy of being a local for Art Basel Miami Beach was acute when talking to Kyle Chapman, an artist who grew up—like many of us—far from the lapping waters of South Beach. He told a story about a time in middle school when he found a baby leopard-patterned Lisa Frank trapper keeper in the bathroom, and you could tell who was just visiting by their gasps at the great reveal of what was inside. Metaphors for life abounded throughout the evening, which started out with... [more]

A First Look at Miami's Newest Contemporary Art Museum

by Allyson Parker
The Institute of Contemporary Art hosted its inaugural show last night to a fanfare of eager art world denizens. Following its staff's departure from the now defunct Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, the ICA is now open in its temporary home in Design District’s landmark Moore Building. The edifice, built in the 1920s by the Moore Furniture Company, has been operating as a pop-up event space for some time and is for now serving as the location for the city's newest contemporary art...

Looking to Brazil

by Charlie Schultz
The way the gallerist Lourdina Jean Rabieh describes it the Brazilian art world is heating up. Because the art market and the greater economy are interlinked, the number of galleries and museums taking root in major cities such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro has grown significantly as the economy has flourished. There may not be an art district, like Chelsea in New York, but there are well over one hundred galleries in São Paulo, Rabieh muses, before offering the boom in contemporary Chinese... [more]

High-Octane Art Fare for Miami Art Week

by Charlie Schultz
Cars have been a fascination for artists since they sputtered onto the road. They are cultural objects, gleaming social markers, symbolic vessels of all that is modernity. Usually, there are one or two “art cars” in Miami, but in all the years I’ve made the rounds the most memorable was easily , the fully customized Cadillac low-rider Jeffrey Deitch parked in front of Art Basel back in 2007. It was tricked out by the Chicago-based Puerto-Rican artist Dzine and it was cool. Like good graffiti,... [more]

Miami Art Week Guide Part I - Miami Beach

by Natalie Hegert
Find the map for Miami Art Week here. It will be updated throughout the week. Art Basel Miami Beach December 5-8 Private View and Vernissage (invite only): Dec 4, 11am-9pm Public hours: Dec 5-7, 12-8pm; Dec 8, 12-6pm The Basel behemoth is ostensibly why we’re all here this week. It takes place in the big, austere convention center and is emblematic of the many things we find wrong with art fairs: for instance it’s easy to get lost in here, can get quite crowded during the public days, and...
