Miami Art Week 2017 Roundup

Another week of art, and pretty much whatever else, in Miami is in the books. This year, I participated in the amazing UNTITLED art fair, which has been gaining ground as a “must see” fair for serious collectors. As always, I took the opportunity to get out to visit other fairs, museums and private collections. There was a lot of good energy in Miami and a lot of strong artwork to be seen. - Steven Zevitas, Publisher


Ugo Rondinone 

Two artist’s names seemed to be on everyone’s lips in Miami: Ugo Rondinone and Christina Quarles. Rondinone had a visually stunning and psychologically resonant exhibition at the Bass Museum, and Galerie Eva Presenhuber dedicated her entire booth at Art Basel Miami Beach to his work. It was an extraordinary one/two punch. Quarles is an emerging painter who has exploded in just the past few months. Before “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon” opened at the New Museum in late September she was an unknown quantity. In quick succession, her work was featured in the well-regarded exhibition “Engender” at LA’s Kohn Gallery; it was acquired by the Rubell Family Collection; Pilar Corrias Gallery announced their representation of her; David Castillo Gallery in Miami gave her a solo concurrent with art week in Miami; and her work was included – somewhat inexplicably – in Deitch and Gagosian’s show “Abstract/Not Abstract.” Needless to say, every collector now “needs to have a Quarles.” Welcome to the art world.
