Unrealism, Larry Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch

A first time collaboration between these divergent art world authorities, Deitch and Gagosian breathe life back into the art of figurative painting and sculpture by bringing together the works of both established and new age artists.

You Must Go On. I Can’t Go On. I’ll Go On, Dominique Lévy
Dominique Lévy – Booth K11

Dominique Lévy presents works from 1960s minimalist era artists such as Frank Stella, Agnes Martin, Andy Warhol and Yayoi Kusama, all chosen due to their reputation of having “repeatedly reckoned with their predecessors” to go on and push “past the previously conceived limits of the medium.”

Dimensions, Devonté Hynes and Ryan McNamara
Pérez Art Museum Miami

A performance art installation, Dimensions sees dance, sculpture and music converge in this one-off show which allows guests to realize a lesser-known, more authentic Miami culture.

After showcasing his imagery in LA then traveling onto Europe, taking in Germany and Austria, Lenny Kravitz’s first photography exhibit arrives in Miami just in time for Art Basel. His photos see the roles reversed as he turns his camera on fans and paparazzi.
