New American Paintings' Miami Beach Highlights

For the past decade, Miami has effectively become the art capital of the world for one week in early December of each year. Spearheaded by the launch of Art Basel Miami in 2001, the city now plays host to more than a dozen satellite art fairs, and countless events and performances spread throughout the city. Hundreds of galleries from around the world participate in the various fairs and events, and they offer the unprecedented opportunity for art enthusiasts, collectors and art world professionals to consider the work of thousands of artists. Overwhelming? Absolutely. Fun? You bet.

The Art Newspaper at Art Basel Miami Beach

Painting is so hot right now. An abundance of Gerhard Richter's and Sigmar Polke's around Art Basel Miami isn't a fluke. Richter is subject of the documentary Gerhard Richter Painting, which had its American premiere here last evening, plus saw career-high bids for Abstracks Bild and other mind-melting paintings at Sotheby's NY last month. Meanwhile his countryman Polke, who passed away last year, set a record at Sotheby's London several months earlier for his '67 work Jungle. Just don't make the mistake of dubbing framed artwork "conservative": painting can be just as lyrical, energetic, experimental, or shocking as its three-dimensional kindred.

MDW Fall Showcase Wrap-Up

Chicago's MDW Fall showcase is the second presentation in the past seven months of the loosely structured art fair and projects organized by Illinois non-profits Threewalls, Roots and Culture, and the Public Media Institute.  An even mix of performative pieces, non-commercial installation, small presses and cleanly presented 2 and 3D works for sale, the quality of the art was consistently high, while approach and project goals varied.

Shea Hembrey's 100 Artist International Biennial (Video)

Ok, we are a little late in posting this video that was introduced in June. But it's too good and relevant to care about timing.

About the video, from the Ted website: "How do you stage an international art show with work from 100 different artists? If you're Shea Hembrey, you invent all of the artists and artwork yourself -- from large-scale outdoor installations to tiny paintings drawn with a single-haired brush. Watch this funny, mind-bending talk to see the explosion of creativity and diversity of skills a single artist is capable of."

We Have a Pulse

Pulse Contemporary Art Fair ran this past weekend in the heart of downtown LA—at LA Live.  Or at least we’re told LA Live is the “heart of the vibrant and burgeoning downtown Los Angeles community.”  As a native Angeleno, I certainly wouldn’t label LA Live the heart of downtown, nor would I label downtown Los Angeles a “burgeoning community” – because quite frankly, downtown LA has been a thriving and distinctive community for some time. - Ellen Caldwell, LA Contributor (more thoughts on the show and images after the jump!)

Highlights from (e)merge: the artists platform

Unlike the gallery platform, two-dimensional works were a bit less common in the artist platform at (e)merge. It’s not surprising -- in their call to artists the organizers expressed an interest in site-specific work that engaged with the idiosyncrasies of a hotel setting. But it may also point to the organizers’ desire to favor experimentation over commerce in this portion of the fair.
