I googled "prepping for Miami" and was ASTOUNDED that this lovely assemblage from a 2010 posting on The Pit came up 1st in the Google image search. LOVE.
We are nearly there, folks. It's almost Miami Art Fair week. For some of you, I imagine this prep time involves juice cleansing, spray tanning and stock liquidating. For the rest of us, it involves reading. And for everyone, some serious list-making.
Mixed Greens is presenting new work by Mark Mulroney in our booth at PULSE (booth D-201). I'm still waiting for both Art Fag City and Boyd Level to put out their super handy Miami maps/lists. In the meantime, be sure to add the PULSE Art Fair (@ the Ice Palace) to your list of "must sees". We hope to see you there!
WHAT I'M READING UP ON:
Jerry Saltz ordering a faux Richter @ NYMAG. How much you wanna bet some sort of station will be set up on Collins where you can order your own...
The Art Loss Register. Do you think ALR will have some sort of booth at Basel? to advertise it's services?
Bob Dylan's latest show at Gagosian (Capital New York). But "this time, without the controversy." So the controversy will be no controversy? Intriguing.
I'm guessing that's a Carsten Höller slide. And if it's not, it still does the trick of making visitors (even those in-the-art-know) wonder to themselves "is that a Carsten Höller slide?", which is, in my book, victory enough.
Happy Weekend, dear readers. For those of you in Washington D.C., be sure to check out the (e)merge fair! S&M will be there all weekend presenting work by Conor Backman. SHOUT OUT to the Washington City Paper for their nice write-up of Conor's work there.
Frieze New York seems to be catering to a very specific crowd:
FOOD: by Frankies Spuntino, Fat Radish, Roberta's, and obvi Intelligensia coffee...this is nice mix of various hipster vibes: LES/Bushwick/Venice, CA.
ALCOHOL: by The Standard Biergarten. Oooh, feels like laid-back, pre-summer prepping at a Meatpacking venue. Very casual. No signs of rose' here.
HOTELS: Wythe and Hotel Americano are both high on the suggested list. What this says about the visitor: "not afraid to stay off the beaten path" a/k/a "I have a car service lined up for the weekend." On the other hand, I like the rather affordable hotels included on this list.
