The opening reception will include a panel discussion with the show’s curator, Nico Kos, the artist duo Home Eleven, Rachel Silverstein of Miami Waterkeepers, and Professor Tamay Özgökmen of CARTHE at University of Miami. The Blue Edition: Miami is part of a series of exhibitions themed around the concept of blue, one of the most beguiling colors in the history of art. Nine international artists have created works for this show, exploring the infinite variations of blue across a wide range of media
Their work will highlight the extraordinary catalogue of emotions associated with the blue from joy to sadness, eroticism to purity, and with a particular focus on its connection to the natural world (sea, sky). The Blue Edition first opened in London with Art Bastion Gallery in November of 2016. The Miami rendition of this concept will place a particular emphasis on the relationship between the color blue and water, drawing focus to issues of oceanic conservation, sea level rise, and other marine ecosystem concerns that affect us locally.
About the Gallery
Art Bastion is an international art gallery that endeavors to discover and represent artists from around the world and to introduce their artwork to a wider audience.
Art Bastion was initially founded as an agency to discover talented artists, to jump-start their careers and to create a globalized network via the Internet that would facilitate communication among artists, collectors, and the everyday art aficionado.
Art Bastion expanded its presence in different realms of the art world, such as art consulting for buyers/sellers, managing collections, and organizing “pop-up” exhibitions.
Though this idea continues to be a major goal of Art Bastion, the agency has diversified its role by setting in the Wynwood Arts District in Miami.
The special events promoted by Art Bastion are a way to mix a dense cultural community with a thriving Arts scene in the heart of Wynwood.
