Best of at Art Basel in Miami Beach 2021

By Katy Donoghue

December 4, 2021

Art Basel in Miami Beach makes a triumphant return to the Miami Beach Convention Center this week, open to the public December 2—4. Over 250 galleries brought their greatest hits, with a mix of some new names and new works alongside.

Open Gallery

Lucy Bull at High Art.

High Art presents several abstract works by Lucy Bull, swirling in yellows and greens, and textured in pinks and oranges. Casey Kaplan is showing a stunning group portrait by Jordan Casteel, depicting two seated figures with a young child, outside in the snow, dressed in winter puffers and holding each other close.

Loie Hollowell at Pace.

A new work by Titus Kaphar, Saints of De-Industry, is a highlight at Gagosian’s booth, its gold-leaf frame surrounding a bust nearly covered in black, punctuated by the shadow of a helicopter and full-length figure holding a bow.

Loie Hollowell’s Red Brain (2021) at Pace is an entrancing orange to black color field to get lost inside of, its bottom edge curved into a half cylinder in silver. At David Zwirner, don’t miss Noah Davis’s Congo #7 (2014), where three men stand in a door frame, awash in tones of grey, black, brown, and blue.

Open Gallery

Kara Walker at Sikkema Jenkins.

Sikkema Jenkins is showing a series of new works on paper from Kara WalkerThe Judge, Goya Group, Don’t Ask Me to Explain Everything, and Clean Coal (Dirty Mouth). The gallery is also showing a fiber work from Sheila Hicks, its rows of golden thread wrapped in reds, purples, greens, and blues; as well as a hanging fabric work from Jeffrey Gibson that reads “PEOPLE LIKE US.”

Bathing a corner of James Cohan’s booth in blue light is Spencer Finch’s Study for Reflections in Water (After Debussy), I (2021)a suite of hanging lights in pink, white, blue, and purple neon. It’s verticality not unlike the trees of Shara Hughes’s Deep Strong Roots (2020) at David Kordansky, making up a forest of warm tones and green brush.

And at Massimo de Carlo, a fantastic painting by Jenna Gribbon sits in conversation with ceramics by Karin Gulbran, all overlooked by Maurizio Cattelan’s cheeky pigeons perching atop the booth’s walls.
