NADA Miami 2010

Featured Artist: Grayson Revoir

"603" (detail), 2010

While I was in Miami for art fair week earlier this month I had a chance to catch up with Brooklyn based artist Grayson Revoir, who was showing with West Street Gallery. Considering the thousands of artworks on display at the numerous fairs around Miami, Grayson’s exhibit was a welcome respite from the crowded booths. This is especially true considering where I saw it: his hotel room on the 6th floor of the Deauville – home to the NADA art fair.  For those who may not be familiar with the artist, the recent Cooper Union graduate is perhaps most recognizable for his fusion of woodwork, found object and conceptual underpinnings. For his newest project he invited visitors to his guerrilla style art “booth” to carve, scratch, draw and otherwise impact the surface of a “picnic” table specially constructed on site for the fair. Both the interactivity of the piece and the context of its display formed a welcome contrast to the rest of NADA’s bustling 6 floors below. I met with Grayson serendipitously while foraging for food on the last day of the fair. Our interview was conducted as a result of a discussion we had while eating burritos on his sculpture.

Miami Beach Photo Diary

China Chow with Adrien Brody at Nada fair

Have I seen enough art in the last four days of Art Basel Miami?  Restless during the day, by night we were trying to figure out which parties to attend. Although I was trying to stick to my mission, which was to cover the fairs, events, and to socialize, I also took out some time to walk around the streets of Wynwood and the Design District. And even stumbled into a really gorgeous piece by the Belgium street artist Roa. It was impossible to see all the fairs and attend everything that I was invited to (sorry if I missed your performance), but was still overloaded with what I did get to see. I had a lot of fun, especially traveling with the Artcards team and finally meeting our Miami editor Brinson in person. We all really enjoyed the hospitality of the Grand Beach Hotel, had breakfast by the ocean, swam, and dipped our overworked bodies in the jacuzzi. Continue Reading More »

Art Basel Miami Day 2: Photo Recap

Photos by Carissa Pelleteri for Artcards Review

For day 2 of Miami art week we decided to branch out away from the main fair. There are a plethora of pop up fairs surrounding the main event. It is easy to get lost in orbit, with so much to do and so much to see. Nada, Scope, Pulse and Fountain all offer looks at younger, contemporary art from local, national and international artists. As the day wore on we were happy to see many of our gallerists and artists. Continue Reading More »

Artcards Miami Weekly Update

by Brinson Renda on November 25th, 2010

Artcards brings you to art November 23, 2010

Weekly Outlook

Art Basel Miami Beach is officially one week away. November 30th through December 1st, VIP Card holders will have access to exhibition vernissages and previews for most fairs. In addition, our local galleries and museums will host openings & previews. Beyond the early-week invitation-only events, there is plenty to do for the general public during these days.

In anticipation of the seemingly overwhelming events going on for Basel, we have now displayed ALL Art Basel related events on our Artcards Miami page. Now is the time to start planning your art hopping journey. The easiest way to make sure you don’t miss out on the best events is to 1) go to our Miami site, 2) pick the day you want to see art, 3) select the shows you want to see, and 4) print your personalized map.

Highlighted this weekend is the NOMI art stroll (near MOCA), one of Miami’s many local art walk events. These walks are a great way to stay connected with the arts in your community, network and enjoy a cocktail or two.

Lastly, I want to give you an early invite to meet our team in person: please come to NADA Art Fair, booth #L-8 on Dec 2-5 to meet the Artcards Team in person and receive a special treat. Continue Reading More »
