Art Basel in the A+E

For Miami, Miami Art Week is a special holiday; the entire city falling under the spell of artists both local and internationally-acclaimed. At its roots, the Miami Beach hub of Art Basel draws thousands upon thousands of art-lovers every year, elevating our city’s intellect one installation at a time. In recent years, the creative celebration has expanded from the beach and onto the mainland with fairs and exhibitions rivaling any other gallery in the world. This year, two of the highest-drawing art fairs have found their home nestled comfortably right across the street from Canvas Miami, in the heart of the Arts + Entertainment District.

The first is Spectrum Miami, unique in that it’s a juried contemporary art show, will be open from Wednesday, December 2nd to Sunday, December 6th. As part of Redwood Media Group, Spectrum Miami is more than an art show—it’s a five-day fine art experience featuring top galleries and artists from across the U.S. and around the world, along with live performances, art demonstrations and curated projects.

Eric Smith, President of Redwood Media Group has said on the fair: “Spectrum Miami will truly have everything—a full spectrum of artwork from galleries and studios featuring career artists, as well as exciting events and special programming—just in a new location.” The theme for Spectrum Miami 2015 is [EMERGENCE]—Innovative Vision Coming to Life. The curated programs are inspired by the theme, including site-specific projects, art talks, and panel discussions; a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video, and new media works; and a curated selection of emerging and spotlight artists.

This year the special exhibition is ARTE Cuba. Curated by Stacy Conde, an established gallerist specializing in Cuban art, ARTE Cuba will present a carefully curated group of Cuban modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge art represented by galleries, art dealers, and the artists themselves. She is excited to bring Cuban art and artists into the spotlight during this exciting time of change between the United States and Cuba.

Spectrum Miami will also once again host ArtSpot International—a show within a show—curated by director Aldo Castillo, one of the most respected authorities on modern and contemporary art. ArtSpot will present carefully selected modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American slant that specialize in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and ceramics. “For ArtSpot International,” Castillo emphasized, “this is an exciting development and a wonderful new location. This is truly a must-see destination for collectors and art aficionados during Miami Art Week.”

Both shows will be a force to be reckoned with during Basel all the way through to that Sunday where our Basel Miami Flea provides a cultural hang for the community and a means to wind-down from the face-paced life that Basel’s chaos can instill. Head to the art fairs all week, or spend your last day of Basel in the A+E as you peruse the Flea stalls and skip across the street to two of the best tent-galleries all Miami Art Week long.
