Following up: Sorry We Couldn't Be There!
Couldn't go to Miami? Neither could we. After an open call for video submissions, we received 16 videos from around the world from artists who couldn't attend Art Basel Miami Beach (and two who could but still wanted to join us!). The video was screened at SEVENMiami in the Winkleman Gallery space, as part of Jennifer Dalton and William Powhida's #rank.
We received a very positive response to this piece, and it was definitely one of my favorites. I had drinks recently with Christi Nielsen, and we talked about the power of video, how it really puts a face to the names we've been tweeting with all this time. The art "world" is much larger and more geographically diverse than the major art centers, and hopefully this video was successful in bringing that out.
Many thanks to all our amazing performers!
