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

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.


There are two ways for individual artists to apply to participate in NEW MATERIAL Miami Beach 2013:

For NEW MATERIAL’S first year, they are offering a solo exhibition open call for one artist selected by jury. This artist will be selected from the open call applications to receive an entire room at the cost of NEW MATERIAL to use for a Solo exhibition of their proposed work. Apply for the SOLO open call:

Expanding on their show premise, artists are invited to submit proposals for a juried process to rent available Artist’s Exhibition Spaces. Individual artists applying to this category will be selected by jury from the list of all applicants.

Upon completion of the jury process, successful proposals will be allocated either 1/3, 1/2 or a whole room based on the amount of space requested in the initial application. Please refer to the below links for application fees, and for a list of participation fees associated with these room size allocations. Apply for the Artist’s Exhibition Space open call:

The 17th Annual No Dead Artists National Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art at the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery. The group exhibition will take place September 3rd – 28th, 2013 with an open call for artists’ submissions from January 20th – June 15th. Deadline June 15th 2013The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. No Dead Artists turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the 90’s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire United States.The exhibition was created in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. Now in its 17th year, No Dead Artists has become an exhibition that has time and again discovered new and emerging talent and is one of the most celebrated art exhibitions in the South.Each year, hundreds of artists submit thousands of works with the hope of being in the select few to exhibit at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery each September. This year, one jury-winning artist will also be awarded a solo exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in 2013 as the grand prize.

No Dead Artists is open to living artists working in the United States. All mediums are accepted including, but not limited to, painting, sculpture, design, glass, metalwork, photography, video, mixed media and installation art.

The No Dead Artists exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. The exhibition is reviewed annually by D. Eric Bookhardt (Artpapers and Gambit Weekly).

For the 17th edition, three renowned arts professionals have been tapped for the No Dead Artists jury:

Lawrence Benenson – Board Member of the Museum of Modern Art, American Folk Art Museum, Museum for African Art, Cooper Union, ART/OMI International Arts Center and the Center for Arts in Education

Megan Koza Young – Director of the Dishman Art Museum

Jordana Zeldin – Director and Curator at ArtBridge

Art Move Festival —  art outdoors on billboards

London: Claudie Bastide @ Hayhill Gallery

Claudie Bastide

7 February – 5 March

In February Hay Hill Gallery presents the first UK solo show of the French painter, photographer and “chair sculptor” Claudie Bastide.

In 1996 Bastide had her first exhibition, which composed of sculptures constructed from chairs. As she recollects “One of my earliest memories as an artist is when I was looking at an old wooden chair I suddenly saw it transformed into a character. That was some sort of a vision which has never left me”.

The works on show will be a mix of paintings from different periods and two “chair sculptures”. In her earlier works Bastide experimented with constructivist ideas, blending geometric forms and blocks of colours in search a true of harmony. In more recent works however, Bastide steps aside from the rigorous geometry and leans towards more spontaneous expression. Bastide explains this change of direction “For some years I have let myself go to a recurring geometrical tendency and I ended up feeling somehow trapped in the shapes.”

In Bastide’s paintings colour is the most important element. It is the starting point and the only planned or preconceived part of a painting “I paint essentially according to my own feelings of a particular colour; I mean that a blue or red or green colour comes over me and I must dive into it until I get saturated with it.” The rest builds up naturally when Bastide lets loose the subconscious creative impulse. Bastide associates herself with the French movement Abstraction Lyrique, not only because she often applies the lessons of Kandinsky in her paintings, but also because of the emotional forces and poetical touch which drive her creativity.

Claudie Bastide
The French artist Claudie Bastide is an international jet-setter. She received formal fine arts training in UCAD Paris (Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs) and in the eighties and nineties ran fashion design studios in Brussels and Mexico City before she finally settled down in Paris. Following her ten years collaboration with a French haute couture icon Pierre Cardin, Claudie finally decided to give up the glamour of the fashion world and dedicate herself to art. She expresses herself in sculpture, painting and photography.
