Miami Beach is cuing up for Art Basel, and SAIC is set to be featured prominently.
Allison Zuckerman (Post-Bac 2013, MFA 2015) is set to open up her first solo museum exhbition at the influential Rubell Family Collection during Art Basel in Miami Beach. According to Artnet, Zuckerman was working at a SoHo gallery and painting in her spare time just a year ago. Now, thanks to a digital-first philosophy and a series of lucky breaks, she'll be featured on one of the art world's biggest stages as one of its most prominent rising stars.
The repurposing method she coined for promotion on Instagram bled into her practice. And a purchase by Kravets Wehby Gallery led to an invitation to a lunch Zuckerman was unaware that the Rubells would be present for. Their visit to the artist's aparment led to purchase of 24 artworks, a residency, and her solo show, Stranger in Paradise, which is opening to broad international enthusiasm. Zuckerman's work will also be showing at Kravets Wehby's booth at the Untitled Miami Beach.
Also part of the Miami fairs are Petra Bachmaier (BFA 1999) and Sean Gallero (SAIC 1993–98), the artistic duo behind Luftwerk, whose work for Maison Perrier-Jouët will be shown at three Miami sites: Design Miami/, L'Eden by Perrier-Jouët, and Miami International Airport . Luftwerk uses projected color and light to reintrepret the Maison's historic links with art nouveau. Read more about their project in the Forbes article.
