Visitors to Art Basel have the opportunity to explore the main museums and private collections in South Florida.

The Bass Museum at 2100 Collins Ave. in Miami Beach celebrates the opening of Alex Israel ‘x Snapchat’, an exhibition of artwork that uses Snap’s augmented reality (AR) technology to bring Alex Israel’s self-portraits to life.

Mr. Israel’s “x Snapchat” is a unique collaboration between the Los Angeles-based artist and Snapchat.

The exhibition unveils three unpublished works.

“Perimeters”, an exhibition of new and site-specific works by Israeli-born and New York-based artist Naama Tsabar, is also on display. She works at the intersection of architecture and music, showing viewers how sound travels through and beyond walls and buildings. She often produces large-scale collaborative performances, sculptures and installations that can be performed by musicians as well as by visitors.

For Perimeters, Ms. Tsabar fuses elements of sculpture, music, performance and architecture and transforms the museum itself into a playable instrument.

The contemporary art space of the Cruz Collection at 23 NE 41st St. presents “There is always a direction”, bringing together the private collection of paintings, sculptures and in situ installations of the art gallery . The title of this year’s exhibition is taken from Gabriel Orozco’s 1994 sculpture “Four Bicycles”, which is currently on display on the third floor.

El Espacio 23 to 2270 NW 23rd St. presents an updated version of its exhibition titled “Witness: Afro Perspectives from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection” for Art Basel.

The Frost Art Museum at 10975 SW 17th St. presents “Retrospectrum,” the largest and most in-depth exhibition of Bob Dylan’s artwork ever held in the United States. Spanning six decades, the exhibition features over 180 paintings, drawings, ironwork and ephemera, showcasing the development and range of Dylan’s visual practice, in tandem with that of his musical and literary canon.

Organized by Shai Baitel of the Shanghai Museum of Modern Art, “Retrospectrum” positions the multifaceted Nobel Prize-winning artist within her larger body of work and highlights a visual practice of a lifetime.

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) at 770 NE 125 St. presents a special exhibition reception on December 2, including the “My Name is Maryan” exhibition, which will be accompanied by a series of educational programs and audiences in partnership with national organizations such as Human Rights Watch, and features additional insights from the arts and local curator and art historian Dr. Erica Moiah James and Holocaust scholar Oren Baruch Stier.

The Pérez Art Museum Miami at 1103 Biscayne Blvd. exhibits Zhivago Duncan’s “Pretentious Crap”, an elaborate multimedia work accompanied by sprawling narratives, which was donated to PAMM by Diane and Robert Moss in 2014. Much of his production is written under the guise of various alter egos, including “ Nacnud Ogavihz ”and the semi-amnesic“ Dick Flash ”.

Inspired by the Wolfsonian-FIU’s emphasis on design history, contemporary production and art from around the world, Dutch designer and artist Bas van Beek opens a new chapter with “Shameless”. This provocative exhibit at 1001 Washington Ave. in Miami Beach features both recent career highlights and new work by Rotterdam-based Van Beek, who draws on archival material to playfully reinterpret form and function in historic design.

Drawing on previously unseen works from the private collection and new acquisitions, Margulies Collection at the Warehouse at 591 NW 27th St. exhibits “Arte Povera”, the story of Italian artists who overturned traditional methods of making fabric. art in the changing culture of post-war Italy. Participating artists include Alighiero Boetti, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis, Giulio Paolini, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Mario Merz and Gilberto Zorio.

Visitors can experience two Yayoi Kusama Infinity “Rooms” at the Rubell Museum at 1100 NW 23rd St. in Miami. These famous, fully immersive works create a kaleidoscopic effect that transports visitors to an alternate and unlimited universe. “Narcissus Garden” is made up of 700 stainless steel spheres. The artwork flows 200 feet along the museum’s central hall, creating an ever-changing river of reflection that visually attracts and teases visitors as they pass through and with it.

“Kusama’s Infinity Chambers take us to new galaxies,” said Mera Rubell, co-founder of the museum. “We are honored to be the only museum in the country to showcase three of its premier interactive works, each offering a different transformative experience.

The new exhibitions officially open Thursday during Art After Hours, a monthly event that allows the public to enter the museum after normal opening hours. Thursday’s rally will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“For Keeps: Selections from the Permanent Collection” will be on display until September 25 with “Self-taught”, an exhibition of American folk art from the permanent collection and featuring works by Mose “T” Tolliver, Woodie Long, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, William Dawson and Bernie Sims – all self-taught artists.

Also from the permanent collection, a series of botanical prints by artist Alice Mason – known for her abstract paintings – will be on display until the end of the year.

“I found them in a box, and these are pieces of a sketchbook,” Lemmer said. “From the notes I found, she just experimented with different things, and I think this work must have come from a book she was experimenting with printmaking techniques.”

But art collections don’t have to be limited to museum walls or vaults. Upcoming Wiregrass Museum of Art exhibits showcase not only the museum’s permanent collection, but also art from a private collector from Alabama on loan to the museum.

“Beautiful Work If You Can Get It” features an eclectic mix of artwork, including sculptures created with metal tools. Some of the pieces are by artists whose works are also part of the museum’s collection, such as Dale Lewis’ caricature of the lips “Queen of the Lipstack”.

PENHOLD, ALTA. – An Alberta family is honoring the life and legacy of their father this weekend by selling a historic collection of horse-drawn carriages and sleighs dating as far back as the 1800s.

The late Lee Bowie of Penhold, Alta. Began purchasing the unique units almost 60 years ago in what has become one of the largest and most incredible private collections in North America.

“He was the kind of person who liked to fix things up and he really liked working with horses and dogs, so the collection started out as a bit of a hobby,” said Greg, Lee Bowie’s eldest son. .

“It all started with a car he discovered in southern Saskatchewan behind a barn and it grew from there. “

Lee Bowie died in January at the age of 90, but left 27 horse-drawn carriages and sleds behind. The collection will now increase for online auction in the sale of his property to Penhold, located just 120 kilometers north of Calgary.

Her daughter Kim says each car has a unique historical value and many memories that stretch back to her childhood.

“Four generations have enjoyed riding the sleds and buggies,” she said.

“Dad used to take mum on evening carriage rides in a buggy with the surrey on top and down country roads. All the neighbors would think he was a big romantic guy and he sort of was, but also a tough cowboy.

Some of the more unique carts include an original McLaughlin Cutter cart. The company was at one point known as the largest manufacturer of horse-drawn strollers in the British Empire and eventually got into the automotive industry with General Motors Canada.

Greg says another of his personal favorites is the Newfoundland Taxi, built in 1890.

“There are only a few left in the world, like maybe three and one of them is selling in this sale,” he said.

“At that time they were driving on the left side of the street, so the sled or taxi is open on the left side and the passengers are seated on the side and the driver is at the back of the unit with the queues. waiting in front of passengers. . “

The public were invited to view the cars on Saturday in person at the Bowie Estate in Penhold, but the auction itself is taking bids online until June 21.

Robert Klatt of Prairie Auction Services says more than 2,000 people have registered to participate in the auction.

“It has garnered a lot of attention from states in the northern United States and across Canada, even as far as Ontario and Quebec,” Klatt said.

“It’s pretty amazing to see and some people I spoke to woke up at 5 am this morning just to come because there aren’t too many opportunities like this.”

calgary, western canada, lee bowie, penhold, horse

One of those people who woke up early was Miles Wowk, who drove the three hour drive just east of Vegreville.

“A lot of these coins are 100 or 120 years old, so where do you go to find such an old coin? It’s a piece of history, you buy a piece of history and that’s how the West was colonized. “

BADA Friends, part of the British Association of Antique Dealers, has hosted virtual events this year until face-to-face meetings can take place later this year.
