Miami Art Basel, Live! [part 2]

0 comments

The Miami Art Basel continues with its massive repertoire of events and mind-blowing installations. Here are some of the highlights of today’s journey through the nation’s largest art fair:

Ink Miami is a satellite fair that is being carried out in the Suites of the Dorchester hotel in Miami. This fair is unique due to its focus on contemporary art made with paper by international artists. The International Fine Print Dealers Association sponsors the fair and its exhibitors are members of the Association that stand out by the quality of art that they exhibit.

Oceanfront is a series of nightly concerts open to the general public during the Miami Art Basel from 6 p.m. until midnight. It is located at Collins Park, between the 21st and 22nd Streets, a mere 5-minute walk from the Convention Center. The Oceanfront has an amazing pavilion that was designed by Phu Hoang Office and Rachely Rotem Studio. Reflective and phosphorescent ropes intertwine to create an interactive, glowing structure. It simply blows you away. Check out the pictures below and you’ll see what we mean.

The Oceanfront program is a collaboration between four international organizations located in four of the world’s most experimental and artistic cities: The Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, Museo Tamayo in México City, 032c in Berlin, and Tramway in Glasgow. Each city will have its own night filled with music, film, video, performance, and other expressions of art.

The Great Vodka River is another amazing piece. It is a massive outdoor, mixed-media installation located at the Oceanfront. Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich was commissioned by Beluga Noble Russian Vodka to produce this piece. It is presented by Luciana Brito Galeria, from Sao Paulo, Brazil. This installation is a multi-storied structure that channels literally a river of vodka through several aluminum gutters. It also features human performers as “vodka river nympths” dressed as traditional Russian women.
