Where to see the best art – December 10, 2007

December 5, 2007

Art Basel Miami lived up to its reputation, drawing a mind-boggling number of art collectors and enthusiasts! While Art Basel remains the feature attraction, the new “Moment” seems to be in the ancillary art fairs in the Wynwood Art District and the Design District… I found myself getting art and beautiful people “fatigue” after a few days…do you have be gorgeous to live in Miami? Or does it just happen organically when you live there? A notable newcomer to the area is the Gibson Guitar Miami showroom which has the most amazing loft space and hosted a party for Artist Eabo. Brad and Robert are amazing- just real cool and super laid back and they will give you a tour of the studio if you just happen to drop by (did not hear it from me) I also found myself frequenting the PULSE Contemporary Art Fair – where mainstream and indie art meet. The lavish VIP lounge hosted by Van Cleef and Arpel and Architectural digest was quite impressive… of course the champagne flowed freely… but IZZE was the big hit (both at Pulse and Gibson!) On “the beach” The Wolfsonian Museum hosted the THE must attend parties of the week, seriously, lines of people around the block. If you can score a gig working Art Basel Miami- definitely do…

Keep posted for upcoming insider coverage of the latest NYC scene and scenesters… one my personal favs- Mercedes Benz Fashion Week- Fall 2008 is right around the corner, we will also be heading down to Austin cover the newest in Music and Film at South by South West.
