Miami’s Art Week Delicacies

Miami flavors underscore the 15th Art Basel Miami Beach. Latin spice mixes with staple German conceptualism, topped with a lemon twist of locals and pop-ups. Food stereotypes, Zika and construction setbacks aside, 2016 promises delicacies.

Latin America is integral to Miami’s art dialogue and Pérez Art Museum Miami’s exhibition of Argentinian-born Julio Le Parc is just that. Curated by Estrellita B. Brodksy, Le Parc’s retrospective testifies to his major contributions to op and kinetic art. The Brillembourg Capriles Collection brings Latinx masters to PINTA in The Global South that explores new dialogues, uncovers underexposed artists and globally contextualizes these artists. Turning contemporary, José Parlá shows “Roots” in National YoungArts Jewel Box. Curated by SCAD, Parlá’s exhibition explores junctures with being Cuban-American.

Fascinations with European-ness sustain, and The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami presents One Day On Success Street by German artist Thomas Bayrle. Exploring the 50-year impact of technology on civilization, Bayrle’s diverse practice is both a joyful and traumatic evolution. Staying in Germany, NSU Museum presents Regeneration series: Anselm Kiefer from the Hall collection, an exhibition of paintings, drawings, books and sculptures exploring Kiefer’s interest in understanding history, specifically the holocaust. Also see the Margulies Collection’s dedicated, scholarly and immersive new permanent installation of Kiefer’s work.

Local freshness begins with graffiti pioneers PRIMARY whose immense new Design District gallery features A heap of broken images, where the sun beat by Autumn Casey. 78 Tarot Cards collage art history, Shakespeare, home interiors, the celestial…that decide ones destiny. Tel Aviv-born artist Naama Tsabar opens Transitions #3 at Spinello Projects. Appropriating aesthetic and technical attributes of musical instruments, her sculptural installations shift perceptions of how music and art function. Tsabar’s live performance is on December 2 at 7pm. Miami-based artist Jillian Mayer offers a social media break on “Slumpies”—utilitarian sculptures providing ergonomic seating for today’s phone-dependent persons at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.

 Curator Claire Tancons spearheads Faena’s one-day processional performance, Tide by Side, featuring Los Carpinteros, Carlos Betancourt, Gay Men’s Chorus, and more, who bring creativity and its social encumberments, to the street. Word on the street is that dealers Jeffrey Deitch and Larry Gagosian are teaming up for a second exhibition at Design District’s Moore Building. This heavyweight pop-up will no doubt be a ticket picante.
