A couple-dozen art fairs and work from thousands of artists takes over Miami each December. Here, we’re looking at pieces inside and outside just a few of those venues, distributed between Miami and Miami Beach. Click through to see some of the works that grabbed our attention while surveying the city.
Enormous works—and in particular, sculptures and installations—tend to garner the biggest crowds at these fairs. But tucked away in several corners across Miami Art Week are gems worthy of recognition. Below, we’ve highlighted two more fairs that deserve a visit if you’re in Miami this week—both with an emphasis on curation.
One of the first fairs to open during Miami Art Week was UNTITLED. Now in its fourth year, the fair showcases big and small scale works from over 130 galleries in its white beachfront tent- a place where you could find some of the most experimental and surprising uses of media this week. Among the booths we bee-lined for was Eric Firestone Gallery’s, which featured a large and psychedelic new piece from artist Jen Stark, now recognized by many for the wormhole and animated dripping entrance that she created for Miley Cyrus at the 2015 MTV VMAs. Take a look at more of our highlights from UNTITLED after the jump!
