Square Foot Art Basel Miami Redux
Projects Gallery presented Square Foot Art Basel Miami Redux, a site-specific project originally showcased in 2011. During this year's world-acclaimed Art Basel Miami, Projects Gallery created a mosaic-style wall in its newly renovated Wynwood Art District space, just a few blocks away from Art Miami, Context, Miami Project and several foundation collections.
Artists from around the world were invited to a call-to-artists process that guaranteed a spot on the wall for the first one hundred applicants. This truly democratic process resulted in hundreds of works being submitted and chosen. Creating a grid comprised of 12" x 12" individual spaces with works of all styles and media, including painting, drawing, photography and sculpture, Projects Gallery provides artists an opportunity to be part of the Art Basel Miami art fair events. This square-foot format seeks to give exposure to familiar and unknown artists alike; and the installation was dynamic, enriching and challenging. Square Foot Art Basel Miami Redux provided a "foot" print for a talented and diverse group.
