So I haven’t made it over to the beach yet. Partially because I am not so interested in the big fair, partially because the traffic situation is particularly bad this year. But I did make it to a few more corners of Wynwood and the Design District. I saw the by now infamous Miru Kim performance/installation at Primary Projects – the one where she is living naked with two live pigs for 104 hours in a storefront window. No pictures allowed but there are some pics over at the New Times. Good stuff. She does look miserable in there though. Great Cleon Peterson painting inside too.
As per usual there is plenty of “Look at me over here!” going on. This guy is apparently tied to some Brainwash project, also promoting a documentary (about himself) and putting up these posters:
Glad to see that someone added the appropriate street commentary to this. Oddly, there are no pictures of his work on this website, or on the docu website. Just saying.
Here are some of the people I am showing with this year.
Brian Buzzella at GAB Studio:
Jaime Adrover @ GAB Studio:
The squatters in the empty lot next door:
Those speakers look small, but that music was very loud bouncing off the concrete walls. They painted the girl on the trailer Thursday night. Some girl was fire eating and writhing around in her underwear on Friday. So there was that.
More later. Going to the Krave beach party for the Sunbather now.
