Art Basel Miami, is happening soon, December 1 – 4 and will, of course, attract many visitors and art buyers.
Despite this fascinating event, we asked ourselves, what else there is to see next to Art Basel in Miami. Here is our short list:
Perez Art Museum Miami
November 18, 2016 – March 19, 2017
Julio Le Parc (born 1928, in Argentina) is a central figure in participatory kinetic art. His first solo exhibition, which includes more than 100 works from the years 1985 until 2013, tries to showcase the artist goal to break down barriers between artwork, viewer and museum. This is an unprecedented opportunity, so we highly recommend you to see this exhibition.
Oct. 14, 2016 – June 4, 2017
Commissioned by Pérez Art Museum Miami and making its debut in this exhibition, Hiller’s video Lost and Found features an audio collage of voices speaking in 23 different languages, including Aramaic, Comanche, Livonian and other extinct or endangered idioms. Many of the anecdotes, songs, arguments, memories, and conversations that the voices relay revolve around the theme of language itself.
The Bass Museum of Art
Official unveiling celebration at 18:00 November 30, 2016
Ugo Rondinone is a swiss-born artist that lives and works in New York. His artworks are often themed around the experimentation with the everyday, whereas his most recent work is an installation of vivid, neon color stones that called "Seven Magic Mountains". We highly recommend you to check his new sculpture piece right in front of the museum on November 30.
Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami
November 30, 2016 – January 20, 2017
Born in Cuba, Antuan Rodriguez fascinated by the power of Art. As he states, Art has an excellent relationship with seduction, slowly revealing us thought and reality. Thus, he wants to make the observer part of the artwork, with the intention to touch the moment. Definitely worth a visit.
Rubell Family Collection
November 30, 2016 - August 25, 2017
Set on the museum's second floor, this exhibition showcases selections of artworks from 32 artists acquired by the Rubells the past two years. This exhibition is a great way to see which upcoming artists and is worth paying attention to.
Lowe Art Museum
November 3, 2016 – May 7, 2017
Originally founded for education equality in Cuba in 1962, this institution has evolved into much more. The Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection of Cuban Art includes works by many of the island-nation’s foremost women artists. Spanning from the 1960s to the present, these works represent a wide range of media and genres. There is no doubt that this exhibition will be very interesting.
