For our third and what appears to be our final adventure at Art Week, we were back at the beach with our good friends. As most Miami locals do, we arrived later than initially planned and entered The Deauville at a quarter to one to enjoy NADA. This hotel on the north end of Miami Beach is best known for hosting the Beatles’ second Ed Sullivan performance and is a sight to see. At first glance,the 50’s retro appearance from Collins somehow conflicts with the chic and modern interior design, but at the same time ties together beautifully.
The exhibits begin almost as soon as you enter the hotel, with several booths in the lobby and then leading into two separate halls. NADA was certainly the best fair thus far with innovative and eye catching concepts at nearly every booth.
Driving for what seemed to be an eternity from the famed hotel on 67th Street to South Beach, we finally arrived to Untitled near 4pm. The humongous pink and white tent was set up atop the sand, sandwiched between the ocean to the east and Lummus Park to the west. This fair seemed larger than NADA, but in the same league in relation to the quality and originality of art within the booths. Between Untitled and NADA we continued to meet some great people. I can only place the photos here for you to observe, as I feel retelling the stories or providing my descriptions will fall short of the impact of the art. You have just a few short hours, please get out there and see for yourselves!
