Miami Art Week, Dec 1 – 6

2 December 2015

It’s December, which means the art (and art-adjacent) crowd takes over the US coastal city, with Art Basel and other events surrounding it at various locations throughout the city between December 1 and 6.

The biggest of the three fairs, Art Basel, runs between December 2 and 6 with over 250 international galleries showing modern and contemporary art, including Berlin’s Contemporary Fine Arts, New York’s Galerie Lelong, and Lisson Gallery, as well as Daniel Keller and Guan Xiao with Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler.

Picks from on the fringe include the Spirit Your Mind group exhibition, hosted by Chalet Society, the Littlest Sister “faux invitational art fair” at Spinello Projects and  Martine Syms‘ NITE LIFE exhibition at Locust Projects.

Other art fair alternatives include NADA (New Art Dealers Alliance), running December 3 to 5, and and PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, running from December 1 to 5, with their own list of (sometimes overlapping) galleries and their talent, including C L E A R I N GTemnikova & Kasela Gallery, and The Sunday Painter at NADA, and Transfer Gallery and Faith Holland at PULSE, plus more.

See the respective sites for details. **

Shut up and play the hits

12 January 2012

LCD Soundsystem is one of the best bands from the last decade. A way of conceiving and making music… the essence of DFA, the group that has influenced an entire generation (Y) and a refreshing dance concept set to shape the sounds of many bands to come.

It’s no surprise then that after their disbandment announcement in 2010 and the official post on their website more or less a year ago, a film, documentary or something in between was being made, shaped, prepared… for our joy…. Revealed last month via Pitchfork, we got to know that a full-on LCD Soundsystem concert movie centered around the band’s final show at Madison Square Garden would have a debut at this year’s Sundance  Fest. as part of the out-of-competition “Spotlight” series.

Shut up and play the hits” was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and produced by Lucas Ochoa and Thomas Benski of Pulse Films and James Murphy. The first screening will take place Sunday 22nd @ Egyptian Theatre, but to grab some tickets you’ll have to wait until Monday 23d. More info on screening dates and venues this way.

And while we wait for the doc to cross to this side of the ocean we’ll keep dancing in ecstasy to their never-ending yeahs.
