Art Basel Miami Beach and Others

For those of you making the trek to Miami this week for the various fairs (or who are perhaps already there), while we won’t be joining you this year, we expect there will be plenty of great and terrible work on display. Here’s our view of the short list:

A few of the major photography players can be found at Art Basel Miami Beach (Howard Greenberg, Fraenkel, Edwynn Houk, and Kicken Berlin), mixed in with the cream of the crop of the world’s best contemporary art dealers, almost all of which show photography periodically these days. This will certainly be the venue for the top end contemporary photography, along with some choice vintage pieces in the background.

With the demise of the short lived AIPAD Miami Beach edition, the rest of the photography galleries have been spread to the wind, many ending up at Art Miami (Barry Singer, Catherine Edelman, Cohen Amador, Fay Gold, Michael Hoppen, Hasted Hunt, PDNB, Silverstein Photography, Stephen Bulger, Rick Wester, and Yancey Richardson among others). Pulse has a few more worth visiting (Yossi Milo, Robert Mann, Julie Saul). Photo Miami has another fifty or so photo galleries, many of which are unknown to us, but likely worth a quick look as well.

NADA, SCOPE, Aqua, and Bridge don’t seem to have much in the way of photography, but you never know what you might find being exhibited. And there are many more shows beyond even these, if you have the stamina.

And don’t forget to swing by and see the Margulies Collection at The Warehouse and the Rubell Family Collection, two great private collections of contemporary art (including photography).

Let us know if we’ve missed something important and/or give us some comments from the show if you are attending.

UPDATE: James Danziger’s report from Miami Day 1 is here. Day 2 is here. Day 3 is here. Modern Art Obsession’s report on the Pulse opening is here. Fugitive Vision’s first report is here. MAO on the Aqua fairs is here.
