Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The end of the year was punctuated by Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), which never fails to please. The quality of ABMB is unsurpassed. It’s not only a great forum for seasoned collectors and art professionals like me, but it’s also a fantastic place for beginners to get initiated into this oh-so-vast world of art. With as much art as I see, I always make discoveries and learn something new in Miami.
I was pleased to see Israel Lund, a painter who I first saw at MiArt in Milan last spring, make an appearance at ABMB at Roberts + Tilton. Salon 94’s booth was stunning with a beautiful selection of Marilyn Minter paintings, but the real highlight was the small display of ceramic works by Francesca di Mattio in their back room. I also loved the Ryan Gander wall installation at Lisson, the Matthias Bitzer and Francesco Simeti installation at Francesca Minini, the Dan McCarthy funny-face pottery at Anton Kern, Kay Rosen at Sikkema Jenkins, and Elmgreen & Dragset at Victoria Miro, just to name a few.
