ARTmonday: Art Basel Miami 2014 Part II

Here’s my second batch of photos from Art Basel Miami 2014. (Here’s the link to Art Basel Miami 2014 Part I, in case you missed it last Monday.) I feel like a lot of the works were similar to last year’s Art Basel Miami 2013, though I didn’t see quite as many neon and textual pieces. I wonder if this year’s presentations were a little less edgy?

Nevertheless, I am always excited to see work by artists whose work I’m familiar with, like modern masters such as Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, Kenneth Noland, and Josef Albers, or those just slightly less known, that I learned about in college art history class, like Louise Nevelson. Then there are the more contemporary artists that I learned about from exploring museums in New York, such as Nan Goldin and Damien Hirst, or more recently, Pinterest, such as Ed Ruscha.

Even if you don’t have the astronomical budget it would take to decorate your home with artwork from the top galleries that exhibit at Art Basel Miami, it is still incredible to attend. The central show at the Convention Center is really more like a museum exhibit. It’s interesting to see work by artists that form the foundation that inform today’s more contemporary artists, and our overall design aesthetic. It will help develop your eye for when you are shopping for more affordable artwork for your home.

Here are 35 pieces of modern and contemporary art from the Convention Center at Art Basel Miami 2014. If you happen to know any of the artwork I wasn’t able to identify, please share. (I actually wandered around on my own for an hour in hopes of carefully documenting everything I photographed, but I still missed a couple.) Thanks!

  1. Definitely seems less edgy to me.

Let's talk style.
