Yesterday, we shared our photos from what went down during Basel Week in Miami (December 3-8) during the art fairs Context and Aqua, as well as Kenny Scharf’s garden installation, “Tony’s Oasis,” and the “Women on the Walls” street art exhibition in Wynwood (read our extensive recap here). To conclude our on-going Basel Week coverage, today we bring you our highlights of Pulse, Scope and Miami Project.

At Scope, we reveled in Nychos’s paintings of dissected cartoon creatures in Mighty Tanaka’s booth, immersed ourselves in Alex Kiessling’s large-scale, sci-fi painting at Galerie Suppan Contemporary’s booth and were mesmerized by Zhang Su’s delicate painting for Beautiful Asset Art Project. At Pulse, we got lost in the vortex of Jen Stark’s paper sculpture for Martha Otero Gallery, investigated the uncanny reflections of society in Alex Gross’s paintings and went to space with the “Afronauts” in Cristina de Midel’s conceptual photo series. At Miami Project, we had a hard time looking away from Kris Kuksi’s epic assemblage at Joshua Liner Gallery’s booth and investigating the notion of the artificial in Eckhart Hahn’s still lifes with animals at Pablo’s Birthday’s booth.

Basel Week was one hell of a ride, with more art to see than the human brain can physically absorb. In case you missed it last week, read our coverage of the main fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, here, check out Miami street art highlights here and Faile’s interactive installation in Miami here. That’s all, folks! Until next year.
