Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Untitled, Miami Beach is one of our favorite fairs of Miami Art Week, not just because it’s the closest we’ll get to the beach (though that was true). This year was impressive, with galleries like Monique Meloche, Eric Firestone, and more really turning it out. Entering the bright tent, is a traveling exhibition of Carlos Cruz-Diez presented by Savannah College of Art and Design, which includes a shipping container outside the pavilion made up of color chambers.
We loved Dana Sherwood’s “The Confectionery Lives of Snails” at Denny Gallery. The presentation included hand blown glass cake displays filled with cake, flowers, plants, and live snails, alongside the delightful watercolor series, “Feral Cakes.”
Yancey Richardson is showing a stellar group of three artists working in photography—Zanele Muholey, Paul Impagi Sepuya, and Mickalene Thomas. We also were drawn to the color and figures of Los Angeles-based Alex Gardner at New Image Art.
Galerie Kleindienst put together a bright, eye-catching installation of graphic paintings and patterned wallpaper by Christoph Ruckhäberle. Monique Meloche’s booth had intricate, bead-covered and floral-framed works by Ebony G. Patterson on the floor and wall; along with fantastic paintings by Baltimore-based Amy Sherald (who was recently chosen to paint Michelle Obama’s portrait).
Keita Miyazaki’s sculptural pieces made from a surprising material of industrial pipes and paper hung like floral sconces at Rosenfeld Porcini. And we could barely grab a picture of Eric Yahnker’s work on view at a very packed The Hole—including amazing images of Britney Spears, Donald Trump, an eagle on a cell phone, and more.
