    Art Basel Miami Beach 2019 | Highlights

    January 18, 2020


    The fair feels great this year. We’ve come through the end of a multi-year renovation
    of this building. The show’s really vibrant,
    there’s a lot of color and texture and materiality
    coming through the works. A lot of larger-scale
    sculptures, painting, interesting photography, a wide-ranging
    generation of artists. And it’s a very
    internationally diverse show. Christina uses oil paints, so there’s a real plasticity
    to the texture. It’s kind of
    about borders and boundaries and things that aren’t binary, that are fluid and meshing
    somehow together. I think it’s kind of beings
    finding themselves. How do boundaries get crossed? What is the boundary of a body? What is the boundary
    of a gender? What is the boundary of race? I think she’s one of
    the strongest painters I’ve seen come up
    in a very long time. It’s a presentation of a
    cocktail party as he sees it. It’s a bit of a
    caricature, cartoon, elements are exaggerated and none of the figures are actually
    interacting with one another. Today we are obsessed
    with observing people, and this is an opportunity
    to really stand back and observe a kind of
    frozen moment in time. We’re deeply supportive
    of our younger galleries, both within
    the project-specific sectors, like Positions or Nova. But also in helping
    support galleries come up through the ranks
    in the main sectors of the fair. This year at Art Basel we’re presenting
    a solo booth of Tau Lewis. And it’s an ongoing narrative
    of works that she’s doing that relates to the ideas
    of ancestry through the cosmos. I think the fact
    that she is self-taught creates an interesting
    lens for her. I think she takes risks
    that maybe artists who have maybe a more formal
    approach to their practice wouldn’t take. If you spend time
    with these pieces, you can really see the
    personalities coming through. They’re very special. I’m happy
    to say they’re all my friends.Hand Circle,from 1996,
    is phosphorus-based bronze, which has copper in it, which gives it this
    high level of naturalism. It almost seems like the hands are covered
    in mascara or makeup. These are his hands
    that are repeated, and in this kind of
    circular configuration he’s exploring various gestures. The finger in the hole – very suggestive of a kind of
    human sexual experience, but it could also be
    a sleight of hand or abstract sign language. Someone once said that experiencing
    Bruce Nauman’s work is like getting
    hit over the head with a baseball bat from behind. And yet this piece has this
    more contemplative, more mysterious quality,
    more abstract quality. ‘Force comes from motion. It serves three purposes: to
    pull, to push, to immobilize.’ The aim of Juan Carlos Romero
    withViolenciawas to shove the spectators
    into realizing that violence was the only way to fight the
    oppressor’s violence. This is what he called
    ‘emancipatory violence.’ The work started about a little
    over three years ago, where Julie
    had just traveled to China and observed these beautiful
    cave paintings. This one isLuminous Appearance,andTransmigration,
    Transmutation,andLast Breath.One of the things
    we’re most proud of that happens in parallel
    with the shows is our Conversations program which this year bring together
    over 50 different speakers, whether curators, artists,
    museum directors, collectors, activists, writers
    from all over the world. All of these talks
    are available online. I remember growing up and
    hearing about Lorenzato’s work, and it was sort of
    a hidden secret. He developed his own technique
    because he had these tools. So he would kind of
    comb the paintings. I love this from 1994. It feels
    to me like a New Year’s Eve, where you can see the sky
    lit by these flowers of fire. She cuts and manipulates
    and embellishes and really uses beauty as a tool
    to seduce you in to what looks like this very
    glorious and beautiful image, but it’s really about serious
    disenfranchisement of underprivileged
    and minorities and violence against black
    and brown bodies. One thing that we’re incredibly
    proud of at Art Basel is the extent to which artists
    themselves are engaged with what happens here. The notion that art fairs are
    an isolated, commercial sphere, separated somehow from the
    studio and from artist practice, is no longer
    really the case whatsoever.

    The Palm Beaches: Coastal Charm in Delray Beach, Florida

    January 15, 2020


    I love cute beach towns like Delray. Sunrise on the beach, then you get to just walk over to these bright colorful shops. It’s awesome. Pineapple Grove has so much great art, live music, comedy, art galleries, and some really great restaurants. I’m in the mood for tacos and tequila, so I’m heading to El Camino. First thing’s first, jalapeno watermelon margarita, please. This is the place for unique Mexican Baja style seafood dishes, specialty tacos, and delicious cocktails. Plus, it’s got this stylish, laid back vibe. So typical Delray beach.

    Florida Travel: Family Biking on Daytona Beach

    January 14, 2020


    (upbeat rock music) – There’s a lot to do here. I mean, the weather could not be better and one thing you can do here that you can’t do at
    a lot of other beaches is actually ride bikes on the sand. Riding bikes on the beach is super fun and it’s a challenge. We really had to cooperate and that brought us closer
    together as a family. This was such a treat for our family. I mean, we’ve been bike riding before, we’ve been to the beach before, but to do kind of a mash-up of both, to ride bikes and get that breeze and then cool off in the ocean, just perfect. When we were ready to cool
    off we raced for ice cream. My husband and my daughter won, but that’s okay ’cause
    we all had a great time. We really had a full day. What started out as riding bikes turned into a full-on beach day which is great because it means they’re gonna sleep all the way home.

    Sexual Assault On Cruise Ship- What Do I Do?

    January 14, 2020


    What you should do first of all is report
    it. You need to get help. Do not think that you are doing anything wrong
    or have done anything wrong. You haven’t. You’re the victim. You need to report it. You need to report it as soon as possible. You need to report it onboard and get an examination. A rape kit examination. So that’s the first thing. The second thing is you the victim or the
    victim’s family need to report this to the FBI. The cruise lines will want to communicate
    directly with the FBI because the cruise lines want to tell the FBI their version of the
    story. You should contact the FBI. When you get off the ship, you need to be
    examined as well, and you need to finally, you need to go to a psychologist or a counselor,
    and you need to make appointments and get that help that you need.

    Florida Travel: Topsail Hill Preserve State Park at Santa Rosa Beach

    January 14, 2020


    (tranquil instrumental music) – [Narrator] We are at Topsail
    Hill Preserve State Park on County Road 30A in
    Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, right near Sandestin. Topsail Hill looked like
    the mainsail of a ship as boats were out on the Gulf
    looking towards the beach. What’s unique for me about Topsail is the diverse ecosystem
    where I can get my peace and tranquility on 3.2 miles
    of secluded, undeveloped beach. I can come out to Campbell
    Lake, I can rent a canoe or kayak, and be the only
    one on a hundred-acre lake. During times of heavy rains or storms, our coastal dune lakes
    may create and outfall with the intermixing of
    water from the outfall with the Gulf, making
    the water appear tannic although completely natural. The most beautiful place
    in the park, for me, is right on the boardwalk
    as you’re walking down to the Gulf, that minute
    you first glance the Gulf while you’re surrounded by
    mountains of sand dunes.

    Florida Travel: Accessible Travel at New Smyrna Beach & Daytona Beach

    January 11, 2020


    (upbeat music) – I really enjoy coming
    to New Smyrna because of the accessibility. It’s great to just be able
    to drive down to the ocean, be able to get on hard solid
    sand where you can push around easier and just breathe
    it in and enjoy the view. (gentle music) Usually when I come to
    the beach it is me and mom and we just kind of enjoy
    sitting out in the sun. Maybe reading a book. I like to write a lot so
    I usually go on my phone and maybe I’ll write a little bit. And every once in a while
    maybe a friend will come and we can hit a volleyball
    around or just play a little beach games. If you have the opportunity
    to maybe try things, it doesn’t hurt to try. A disability is something
    that some people have to deal with, it shouldn’t
    be looked past or ignored. It’s very easy to get caught up in things but just go out, soak in
    the sun, enjoy the view, enjoy the people that are around. Just, it’s great to just be out and about. (upbeat music)
