Art Basel Miami: 13 public art works in Miami Beach

Art Projects, curated by Patrick Charpenal of Guadalajara, featured 13 projects installed in outdoor public spaces of Miami Beach. I was able to see 3 of the 13.

Marc Swanson : Untitled (Standing Deer, Upward Sweep), 2009, Richard Gray Gallery NY

Jorge Mayet: Deseo, 2009, Galeria Horrach Moya, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Franz West: Lying Knot, 2008, Gagosian Gallery, NY


I would have liked to have seen Gonzalo Lebrija's Black Marlin, 2009, Galerie Laurent Godin, Paris-a life sized marlin constructed out of fiberglass and bronze, which was installed head first into a building in South Beach. It was reported in The Art Newspaper, 2 December 2009 edition, that the nose of the sculpture was sawed off by the shipper to fit it in the truck!!! It was repaired in Miami Beach and safely installed.
