It is always fun to come down to Miami for the art fairs. We see a lot of art and enjoy the warm weather. The first day we hit up the big fair which can be extremely overwhelming. For whatever reason, I was not as wowed this year. Maybe I have become jaded after going to so many fairs that I have begun to know the galleries and the artists to the point where I finding something new and exciting isn’t so easy.
Before getting to the fair we went to the Bass Museum. They do such a great job and this year was fantastic. Downstairs is the first Haas Brothers museum exhibit and from what I understand the brothers have been hanging there which is so great. Their work is whimsical and unique.
Have been a fan for years.
Upstairs at the museum is a Paola Pivi installation. Loved the room of colorful larger than life bears. This one is called “Freaking Yoga”.
This was incredible. 92 televisions displaying 40,000 images of reality with recorded lies playing through a sound system.
Then off to the fair. Here are some of my highlights. What If Women Ruled the World by Yael Bartana.
Always love Hockney.
The Couple by Louise Bourgeois.
Finally Finished by Richard Serra.
Embracing Couple by George Segal.
More Paola Pivi.
I Pledge Allegiance (Flammable), Rob Pruitt. This is made up of matches.
Going back to the big show again today. Maybe I will find more inspiration.
