Art Basel Miami Beach 2011: Art Public

The Art Public section of Art Basel Miami Beach presents sculptures, performances and site-specific performances. The 2011 edition was special because it inaugurated a new collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art. This presentation in the public space between the Bass Museum and the Oceanfront with most of the works placed in Collins Park compliments the indoor experience of Art Basel in the Convention Center.

Curated by Christine Y. Kim, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at LACMA and Co-Founder of LAND, Art Public featured work by Darren Bader, Nina Beier, Chakaia Booker, Andrea Bowers and Olga Koumoundouros, Bruce Conner, Kate Costello, Jen DeNike, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Rachel Feinstein, Theaster Gates, Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Thomas Houseago, Richard Hughes, Robert Indiana, Glenn Kaino, Anish Kapoor, Robert Melee, Anthony Pearson, George Rickey, Eva Rothschild, Eduardo Sarabia, Banks Violette, and Zhang Huan.

This video provides you with a walk-through on the last day of Art Basel Miami Beach. VernissageTV also captured the performances of Glenn Kaino and Theaster Gates on the Art Public Opening Night, as well as Jen DeNike’s performance (coming soon). There’s also a video on how to use Gardar Eide Einarsson’s installation (already available on our Members page).

Zhang Huan: Berlin Buddha / Haunch of Venison Berlin

Chinese artist Zhang Huan’s exhibition “Berlin Buddha” is the first major show to take place at Haunch of Venison’s new project space in Berlin. Zhang Huan’s Berlin Buddha is a 4 metres high sculpture made from compacted ash. It sits facing the aluminium mould from which it was cast and will slowly disintegrate over the three-month course of the exhibition. The video by VTV correspondent Lizza May David shows the opening of the exhibition and the performance in which the ash Buddha’s face is being freed from the last section of the mould. Born 1965 in Henan Province, Zhang Huan studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. His work is represented in a number of important collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum and Centre Pompidou, Paris. Zhang Huan 张洹: Berlin Buddha (September 29 – December 8, 2007). Opening reception, September 28, 2007. Video: Lizza May David.
