New Material Art Fair Miami: Has Two Options for Individual Artists To Enter

NEW MATERIAL AT THE EVA HOTEL
1506 COLLINS AVE MIAMI BEACH
December 5-8, 2013

During Art Basel and located two doors down from AQUA, the New Material Art Fair Miami premiers this December 2013

The focus of NEW MATERIAL is to expose brave departures in the practices of established and mid-career artists and galleries; particularly bodies of work unfettered by trends, and to date untested in the commercial realm.

NEW MATERIAL is the most recent addition to the satellite fairs concurrent with Art Basel, premiering this December 2013 at the recently renovated, 30-room boutique Eva Hotel.

Located two doors from the Aqua Art Fair, NEW MATERIAL will occupy the entire hotel, showcasing artists and galleries engaged in our premise.

On-The-Scene Artist-Correspondent Reviews the Art Basel Fair 2012 + Art Miami

New York City artist Blossom Verlinsky sent some shots she grabbed at the current and in-progress Art Basel Art Fair, Miami, and the Art Miami Fair in Florida. Blossom included her commentary on each piece she sent an image for, including mixed media, paintings, collage, photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and textiles– all diverse works by such artists as Kiki Smith, Alexander Calder, Masami Teraoka, Benjamin Edelstein, Li Hui, Adolph Gottlieb, Sigmar Polke, Sissi, Frank Stella, Olga De Amaral, Franck Loret, George Sherwood, Philip Taafe, Fred Tomaselli, Robert Diago, and a painting influenced by mentor Fernand Leger painted by William Klein in 1949.

Here is what Blossom sent yesterday:

The Art at The Art Basel Show was not as exciting as the crowds streaming through, more costumed than dressed(perhaps as the people they wanted to be). There was a great deal of frantic hunting and gathering – not much contemplating of the art itself – I was disappointed by the quality of the art (not the best examples of that particular artist). The Art Basel Show last year had more substance and was much better. Although, one always finds art that speaks to you, that grabs you.

The Art Miami Shows in Wynwood were much more interesting, personal and inventive. I am sending you several images that were of interest to me for various reasons – some artworks
that I had wanted to include were unfortunately un-photographable.

A poetic, dazzling and dramatic construct – The crimson laser and LED lights pierce through the darkness of the 28′ height space. As you wander within the space you become part of the
luminescence – you become lost in it – disoriented.

A beautiful piece.  An architectural tapestry of golden surfaces of light. Rich interplay of twisted weaves as though from a Pre-Columbian forest.
