Gagosian gallery takes over Art Basel Miami 2013

Art Basel Miami 2013 (December 4-7) gathered once more the most prominent galleries from all over the world and offered visitors, artists and collectors the chance to experience firsthand the most amazing modern and contemporary art. The Miami Beach Convention Center featured more than 250 galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa, exhibiting artworks by over 2,000 artists. Moreover, satellite shows like Art Asia or Design Miami, lectures, film screenings, private parties and various accompanying events made Art Basel Miami a definite must see for more than 50,000 art enthusiasts. Gagosian gallery of course couldn’t miss the biggest art event in the United States and showed this year a wide selection of works from 36 different artists, among them Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, William Eggleston, Urs Fischer, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, John Currin, John Chamberlain, Richard Phillips, Nate Lowman and Henry Moore. Jeff Koons’ giant “Baroque Egg with Bow” (1994-2008), an imposing piece in flashy turquoise and magenta colors, set the tone of the gallery’s K12 booth and caused an enthusiastic response from the international art crowd. Mr. Larry Gagosian himself was present at the event and could not hide his content with this year’s outcome.

Apart from its booth at the Miami Beach Conventions Center, Gagosian gallery also showed works by Thomas Houseago during the Art Public exhibition at Art Basel Miami. Collin’s Park was transformed for the occasion into an outdoor exhibitions space, with large-scale sculptures, videos, installations and live performances taking over the place. Houseago’s monumental Striding Figure (Rome I) (2013) stole the spotlight with its imposing 93 inches stature and its primal allure. There were also exhibited three pieces that Houseago originally created as furniture for his studio in Los Angeles. Art Basel Public was curated by Nicholas Baume and produced in collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art, Miami.
