Art Basel Switzerland Goes Virtual in June with Online Viewing Rooms!

Jun 19, 2020 June 19, 2020

With the iconic Swiss Art Fair moving online after a hoped-for September opening, Art Basel is offering seven days of virtual gallery showcases and events this week, highlighting galleries and artists scheduled to have been shown in person. The week-long open viewing, which is the second opening after a similar viewing in March, begins at 1 pm CET on Friday, June 19, 2020, and you only need to create or use your Art Basel account to join in.
 

What’s on Show?

In this second virtual edition, get ready to be treated to over 4,000 works presented by 282 galleries from across the globe. Artists of every caliber – emerging to master – from over 35 countries and territories will be on view. Some of the leading art galleries featured include Jhaveri Contemporary, New Delhi; Lia Rumma, Milan and Naples; Galerie Lahumiere, Paris; Queer Thoughts, New York City; and Stevenson, Cape Town; and Landau Fine Art of Canada.

This June, you can expect to see historical works from the likes of German painter Josef Albers, American sculptors Donald Judd and Louise Nevelson, Swiss sculptor Hans Arp, Brazil’s Lygia Pape, Italian painter and sculptor Marino Marini, and Chinese painter Zao Wou-Ki. 

The lineup of active artists includes Carrie Mae Weems, Glenn Ligon, Deana Lawson, Theaster Gates, Nicole Eisenman, Monica Bonvicini, Jeffrey Gibson, Wade Guyton, and Cecile B. Evans. Some of the emerging artists featured will be Issy Wood, Hana Miletic, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Chen Tianzhuo, as well as Rafa Esparza. You can check out the full list here.

 


The Experience

Enjoy world-class art from the comfort of your couch as you navigate between the four iconic sectors. While Galleries is the main sector, Edition features prints and editioned works, Feature brings curated presentations of 20th- and 21st-century artists, and Statements highlights emerging talent.

With a new and enhanced virtual platform, the program aims to keep the connection going between patrons, artists, and galleries. While you may not experience the “Stendhal syndrome,” the virtual platform allows visitors to zoom in to close-up shots, watch short clips of artists talking about their works, and some works can even be panned around to get a feel of their texture and dimension. You will also be able to ‘like’ and ‘share’ your favorite works, and if you are interested in purchasing you can work directly with the gallery. 

As for Art Basel Miami Beach, the favorite local event is still scheduled for the first week in December on Miami Beach. We will keep you posted on any updates.



The Events Program

What’s also new in this new virtual edition of Art Basel is that there are dozens of events, as well as curator tours, live interviews and artist talks, running parallel to the viewing rooms. The online events program will feature talks between gallerists and artists, gallery tours, and performances. 

One of the opening talks features a conversation between legendary curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of Serpentine Galleries in London, and Cecilia Vicuña, whose artistic practice engages with critical issues of environmental justice. Of the performances, we recommend keeping an eye out for the hour-long online presentation by Jan Mot of David Lamelas’ Time. (You can bookmark the YouTube link here.) You can also catch all of the conversations live on their Facebook page, as and when they happen.

P.S. Just like you, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for Art Basel Miami Beach, scheduled for December 1-6!

Real Estate News Miami Building Boom 2021: These are the 12 New Condo Development Projects Planned to Date
It’s a trend we’ve been talking about since the last quarter of 2020 - waves of buyers are contributing to one of the biggest real estate booms in Miami history. As individuals and businesses escape high tax states like New York and California, and have the freedom to work from any location, luxury condo developers in Miami are announcing new project after new project.   Miami condo developers have announced over a dozen new and relaunched condo projects since the beginning of 2021. In an attempt to appeal to a wide range of new residents, each new project aims to be taller, more luxurious, and offer the most exciting set of amenities imaginable, and could bring more than 10,000 residential units to Miami over the next few years. With the real estate market in Miami in one of its most lucrative cycles yet, here’s a look at the latest condo projects proposed in Miami since January 2021 (till the time of this post): New Miami Condo Development Projects 2021 E11even Hotel and...

Neighborhood Comparisons Surfside vs Sunny Isles Beach: Which Miami Neighborhood is Better?
If you love coastal living with walkable access to Atlantic Ocean beaches, and you want to move to a beachfront address while bypassing the hustle and bustle of South Beach, there are two beachside communities to consider when looking to make your move: Sunny Isles Beach and Surfside.  While these communities are practically next-door neighbors (with ritzy Bal Harbour nestled between them) and they share many amenities, including direct beach access to the Atlantic. Plus, they both are in prime locations that provide quick and easy access to airports, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor living, living there could not be more different from one another.   As insiders who’ve lived in these popular Miami neighborhoods, we’ve broken down the similarities and differences between these two beautiful seaside communities in case you are looking to move to Miami.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Every few months, a new condo tower is announced with ambitions of becoming one of Miami’s tallest buildings.  Call them #supertowers, #supertalls, or #skyscrapers, they’re definitely building the city’s skyline, reputation, and luxury living to new heights.

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
