September artwalk

How about this: Like a phoenix rising from the heat of August, in September the Miami artwalk reinvents itself, and learns to fly anew. Ok, really the season more officially starts in October, and I got out of the house late and missed all the galleries around Snitzer, but all evidence indicated that Miami’s art scene really is becoming something. Here’s a spraycan-lid barfing skull by graffiti crew TYPOE at Spinello. Can you smell it? Stinks like Basel, baby. Basel.

Art walk July: the art

My art walk pictures will probably BORE you. But I don’t care. I’m sharing them anyway. Usually I bitch and moan about the heat and the people and the texting and the phone calling and the “where are you“ing, but this month was a delight, even though I had one wicked hangover with which to contend.

There were a few unexpected treats. At the Snitzer, the treat was expected, but especially delicious. Boy, Oh Boy is a show is about a boys, one of my favorite subjects. It included a photograph by the recently deceased Dash Snow and a painting by local favorite Hernan Bas, both you must go to see, since I didn’t post images here. It was hard to choose my preferred works. It was reaaaally hard (har har – get it, you know, the image there? Below?). This collage is by Alex Flemming and was part of a series of phalluses drawn or painted on photographs.

These really rule my world.

Hung Liu at Bernice Steinbaum, artwalk
