Held at the “Waterfront Fair in the Round”, Concept Art Fair sits on a 32-acre Noguchi designed Bayfront Park on Biscayne Bay – the epicenter of Downtown Miami’s Arts, Museum and Entertainment District – bounded on the north by Perez Art Museum Miami and on the south by the city’s dynamic Brickell Financial District, home to over 1000 companies making up Miami’s global trading, banking, law, creative and tech industries. Over 45 participating galleries will be exhibiting internationally renowned modern and contemporary art.
Highlights of the fair include a rare view of the artworks by Pritzker-winning architect, Richard Meier who is currently completing a re-design of Miami Beach’s Shore Club. Collectors will have the first viewing of Meier’s collage installation which contains 224 major original works of art. Meier’s collages join the tradition of collages in modern art, alluding to Dadaist collages, and to their later interpretation by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg. The collages of Meier also resonate the decollagist legacy of European post-WWII artists such as Mimmo Rotella and Raymond Haines. Meier’s collage practice suggests an in-depth examination of his vision of constructed and deconstructed spatiality, offering a key to the work of a globally significant architect who is also a unique artist.
Art historian and author, Peter Hastings Falk will present the works of the large and innovative paintings of Gil Cuatrecasas [1935–2004], a brilliant but reclusive visionary colorist whose paintings had been buried for the last forty years — and nearly discarded. “The Cuatrecasas Discovery” is making its first appearance on the East Coast at Art Concept having made its debut earlier this year in Los Angeles where a feature article in the Los Angeles Times concluded that “No one has ever painted like this.” After attending Harvard and Yale he worked with Josef Albers. This solo exhibition is presented by redM, the online illustrated biographical encyclopedia of artists who have been rediscovered — or newly discovered — by founding Editor and Curator, Peter Hastings Falk, and his Art Advisory Board. Falk underscores the surprise that, for Cuatrecasas, the artist’s style, as well as his technique, are unique in the history of painting. “These paintings elicit a strong visceral reaction,” says Falk, “People linger in contemplation not only over the compelling imagery but over the inscrutable complexity of the technique and paint-handling. No one has fully figured out how he did them.” Fourteen paintings will be exhibited, with a few as long as 14-18 feet. Cuatrecasas’s particular form of action painting exemplifies how web-like configurations of color and surface become a free-floating energy in the world, suggesting an existential stance regarding the intersection of art and life.
Art Concept Fair revitalizes the notion of the Bayfront Park as an open space for the arts. “Reimagining Miami Public Spaces – Homage to Isamu Noguchi”, part of the Art Concept Fair program, is a special outdoor project in Bayfront Park by Miami Mountains Foundation and the City of Miami Public Art Initiative on the significance of art in public places to enhance urban communities and create new audiences. Produced in partnership and with the support of Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs/Art in Public Places, Miami Beach Art in Public Places, Bayfront Park Management Trust, the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Museum, American Institute of Architects, International Sculpture Center, The Miami Foundation, Next Level Fairs and private sponsors. The Biscayne entrance to the fair will be transformed into an outdoor sculpture exhibition through the duration of the fair. The project will stretch Noguchi’s notion interactive sculpture and will expand the scope of viewing participation from the purely experiential-sensual, to the social and historical.
Redesigned in the early 1980’s by Noguchi, the park’s 32 acres of lush greenery, its proximity to the water – which affords a spectacular view of the bay that can be enjoyed from the fair’s dining area – its central location close to ample parking and public transportation, and its proximity to Miami’s leading restaurants, luxury shopping, museums and five star hotels.
Art Concept’s 50,000 sq. ft. 4700 sq. meter column-free venue is enhanced with the translucent ceiling, waterfront dining, lecture pavilion, and outdoor sculpture garden drive from Miami making this the premiere art fair location for Art Basel Week visitors. A short 12 minutes Beach’s Convention Center the fair will offer easy direct access to satellite fairs and the city’s highlighted social events.
Next Level Fairs is the parent company for Art Concept, Art Palm Beach, and Art Boca Raton. Next Level Fairs curates sophisticated, event-driven fairs attracting global attendance, supported by an international marketing and branding strategy in coordination with local museums, collectors, and galleries. Organizers Lee Ann and David Lester, beginning in 1989 they have organized over 100 international fairs and were the original founders of Art Miami, Art Asia Hong Kong, Art Palm Beach, American International Fine Art Fair, and Art Boca Raton. They sold their fairs to major publicly traded companies Advance Star (New York) and Daily Mail Group DMG Media (London) and resumed ownership of Art Palm Beach in 2011.

Public Art Wednesday: Food for Thought

Today, we thought that we would point out the parallels of art and food. Both work to bring people together. Restaurants are if designed from a community concept have the ability to showcase curate and act as the biggest supporters or our local artists. We really appreciated the spread that was done for Art Basel back in 2013. Enjoy

Where To Eat: Art Basel Miami Beach 2013

Here’s what not to miss during Art Basel, food-wise

The Art Of Eating (clockwise From top left): Wynwood Kitchen & Bar (featuring art by Shepard Fairey), the scene-y Cecconi's inside Soho Beach House, fried chicken And waffles At Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, the under-the-radar but highly recommended Mandolin.
The Art Of Eating (clockwise From top left): Wynwood Kitchen & Bar (featuring art by Shepard Fairey), the scene-y Cecconi’s inside Soho Beach House, fried chicken And waffles At Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, the under-the-radar but highly recommended Mandolin.

It’s that time of the year again: every fashionable East Coast-er has either booked or is frantically trying to book a flight to Miami this week for partying and socializing under the sun. And there’s the art. To prepare you for Art Basel  — the massive annual art fair on Miami Beach, and the dozens of other fairs and one-off events and marketing ploys that pop up around it— here’s a list of great places to eat. In addition to the art, the fair has become known for pop-up nightclubs, restaurants and cafés. Here’s a look at some of our favorite spots (new and old) not to be missed this year, split up by your own priorities.

Go For The Food: 

Lorenzo
1776 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139
(786) 483-1796
We’re big fans of Tony Mantuano, a Midwestern chef and restaurateur best known for Chicago’s Spiaggia, but who also happens to run the best pop-up restaurant each year at U.S. Open time in Queens (that’s tennis, not golf). Now, he’s (ahem) taking his talents to South Beach with Lorenzo, a new 200-seater right in the heart of the action (and inside the new Redbury Hotel), serving up a crowd-pleasing menu of Tuscan classics, handmade pastas and pizzas out of the wood oven. Plus, an ambitious cocktail program and high-end design.

Mandolin Miami
4312 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137
(305) 576-6066
Mandolin is a mecca of Aegean cuisine in Miami’s Buena Vista district (not far from Wynwood, where Art Basel activities will be in full-swing). This quaint, out-of-the-way spot features fresh, light Turkish-Greek cuisine that’s still hearty enough to fuel you for the night’s debauchery. Don’t miss the grilled squid and the house white sangria. When you need a break from the fairs and the partying and want to focus on food and friends, this is the place to do it.

Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink
130 NE 40th St, Miami, FL 33137
(305) 573-5550
One of the first to move into Miami’s now–ultra glam Design District, Chef Michael Schwartz’s iconic restaurant continues to be one of the city’s premier dining destinations — and its toughest reservation during Basel. If you’re not seen here breaking bread (and exquisite farm-to-table fare) with VIPs at some point during the week, you haven’t made the scene. The MGD team’s newer Cypress Room, also in the Design District, features a $139 côte de boeuf for two, so art world players will be sure to add a stop to this artfully designed restaurant to their schedules as well. And Schwartz now runs the restaurant at the Raleigh,Restaurant Michael Schwartz, for excellent outdoor dining on South Beach, and will return with his pop-up at Design Miami on the beach as well (more info here).

Garcia’s Seafood Grille & Fish Market
398 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128
(305) 375-0765
Tired of the Basel scene? Hop into a cab for a short ride to the Miami River for a meal at Garcia’s Seafood, a long-running spot where locals flock for seafood and atmosphere. The Cuban family-run seafood joint has been serving some of the freshest fish in town for over 40 years.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar 
1600 Lenox Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 538-5220
Yardbird offers some of the best fried chicken around, a touch of the South in a southern city that’s about as far from Dixie as Nova Scotia. Its Lincoln Road proximity makes it a convenient draw for a realiably awesome dining experience.

Buena Vista Bistro
4582 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137
(305) 456-5909
Tucked into the quiet Buena Vista district, just a stone’s throw away from both Wynwood and the Design District, is Buena Vista Bistro. Book a table at this a quaint French restaurant serving traditional fare, including an array of housemade pâtés and mousse, and escape from the scene alongside the coolest and most down to earth Miami locals.

Go For The Scene:

Wynwood Kitchen & Bar
2550 NW 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33127
(305) 722-8959
Situated adjacent the Wynwood Walls, a graffiti heaven with walls tagged by the likes of Shepard Fairey, Kenny Scharf and Futura, Wynwood Kitchen serves Latin-inspired cuisine in a casual open-air environment, right in the middle of the Wynwood Art District. It also ups the ante during Basel, hosting special showcases for street art, including this year’s “Women on the Walls,” with big names like Claw Money, Lady Pink and Martha Cooper,” and a tribute to recently passed owner Tony Goldman curated by Scharf, Tony’s Oasis.

Cavalli Restaurant and Lounge
150 Ocean Dr. Miami, FL 33139
Scheduled to open just in time for Art Basel, the bi-level restaurant and lounge will “reflect the Cavalli signature beacons of excellence: fashion, food and design, and will offer the ultimate in luxury and sophisticated exclusivity,” according to Roberto Cavalli himself. The restaurant will, most likely, also provide Paris Hilton and Mike Tyson sightings, for better or worse.

A Little Bit Of Both Worlds… 

Cipriani Downtown Miami 
465 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131
(786) 329-4090
Miami newcomer Cipriani Downtown has quickly garnered a huge fan base in South Florida. The legendary Venetian restaurant offers the same menu as its New York locations, with classics such as the Carpaccio Alla Cipriani, baked taglialini with Praga ham and of course, the iconic bellini.

Cecconis
385 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140
(786) 507-7902
Situated in Miami’s Soho Beach House, Cecconi’s is the place to go for consistent Italian cuisine, served in a relaxed, open-air environment. Be sure to make a reservation well in advance, as the Basel crowd will surely be taking the hotel and club by storm.

Hakkasan
4441 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33140
(786) 276-1388
Next door to Soho Beach House is the legendary Fontainebleau Hotel, the debut American location for the world-renowned Cantonese restaurant. Don’t miss the dim sum lunch menu available on weekends.

Lure Fishbar
1600 Collins Ave, Miami, FL 33139
The wait is over! Josh Capon is opening the long-anticipated branch of his trendy NYC seafood spot Lure tonight, December 2nd. Located in the Loews Hotel, the restaurant will dish out raw and cooked seafood, as well as Capon’s famous burger, four-time winner of NYC’s Burger Bash.

Michys
927 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33138
(305) 759-2001
Be sure to make time for a stop at Michy’s, Miami golden girl, Chef Michelle Bernstein‘s namesake. The long-time Miami native was one of the first chefs to take a leap of faith and set up shop in Miami.

Pop-Up Specials

Michy’s Miami Beach Pop-Up 
Miami Beach Botanical Garden, 2000 Convention Center Drive
Miami Beach, Florida
(305) 759-2001

Concept Miami will focus on “fresh-to-market” and secondary market artwork, as well as works by blue-chip artists and modern contemporary masters. Limited to approximately 30 carefully selected dealers, the fair has been designed as a sophisticated, elegant waterfront oasis for collectors during the frenetic Art Basel Week. The fair is located within the downtown Arts & Entertainment District, adjacent to the Perez Art Museum Miami and the Frost Museum, two of Miami’s most prestigious visual arts institutions, and in proximity to all major downtown hotels and Brickell World Plaza, one of the largest banking centers in North America. Concept will be open until 10pm each night, giving visitors additional time to view the artwork after other December fairs close, and operating on a schedule more conducive to Miami’s relaxed atmosphere, later dining hours and vibrant nightlife.

The inaugural edition of Concept, a new art fair for downtown Miami during Art Basel Miami Week, will launch December 2nd through 7th aboard the SeaFair yacht docked at Bayfront Park as it awaits its permanent location to open in 2015 at Miami’s Museum Park. Modern and contemporary art, installations, performances, and cutting edge audience engagement technology will be presented in the intimate and luxurious SeaFair exhibition space and surrounding park, delivering a distinct and decidedly refined art fair experience for the public and veteran collectors alike.

Concept aims to position its exhibitors and attendees at the center of Miami’s expanding Arts & Entertainment District amidst one of the world’s fastest growing cities and luxury markets. With a roster of international blue-chip galleries primarily presenting newly available secondary market modern and contemporary masterpieces, Concept will appeal to seasoned art fair veterans and art market professionals interested in portfolio worthy investment pieces.
