    • Palm Trees and Rollerblades: Wrap-Up

      Wednesday, 12 December 2007 13:36

      I came to Miami for the art fairs, but I stayed for the circus. If you’ve ever been to the circus you know that the best part is never the main attraction. What you remember a year it’s done is the thrilling smell of animal feces and exploding gunpowder. You remember that it’s about eating […]

      “How much longer do I have to pretend to be interested in this?” —15 year old at Art Positions “If you come to Miami to buy art, you’d think you’d get a call girl, and not a Collins Avenue lady of the night.’” —Artist “Have you been to the bathroom at the Deuce? It’s the […]

      I went to Pulse yesterday. The amount of art at these fairs is astounding. You could see a thousand pieces in a day, and probably only remember the bad stuff. It is an exciting, yet slightly vertigo inducing, way to look at art. I’m still on the look out for a painting of William Shatner. […]

      Yesterday I tumbled violently off a cliff in Bushwick and landed face first in a pile of purple jellyfish—that is to say I’ve arrived in South Beach, Miami. The art fairs I’m here to cover are lined up down Collins Ave, South Beach’s main drag. The strip is comprised of luxury hotels, done up in […]

      Every vocation, corporate franchise, sexual perversion or cultural obsession has its own annual convention.
