by Paddy Johnson Corinna Kirsch and Will Brand on December 6, 2012
Thumbnail image for Highlights from Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel Miami Beach is not fun, but sometimes, through the fluorescent lighting, puzzle-piece layout, and brazen privilege, you see some art you like. This is not a typical sentiment at an art fair, populated as they are with the type of work only a catnipped cat would love. However, this year we—and a few others—noticed something a little fishy: for an art fair, the work was in surprisingly good taste.

Art Basel Miami Beach is, as always, an overwhelming experience. There is art, impossible amounts of it, shiny and glossy and kinetic. There are people, hidden within the silicone husks of slightly younger people, who all seem to be terribly important. There are many kind words but few kind looks.

Basel’s not as bad as it might be, really. This year the fish are biting, and the quality of the work overall is fairly high. There is, in the depths of its 250-odd galleries, art worth looking at. We’ll have a fuller report later today; in the meantime, here are 29 samples of what’s on show, with our comments.

Adam Lindemann revives ailing art careers with his tears. Adam Lindemann once brought Marcel Duchamp back from the dead, just to beat him at chess. With his polo mallet. Adam Lindemann…well, you get the idea. Lately, the jet setting art writer has been pounding life into the staid blue chip art scene, from stripping his Madison Avenue space down to cement and drywall to planning an exhibit of Betty Tompkins’ seldom-shown porn paintings at Art Basel Miami.

No awards this year (other than the inaugural Pervert Prize), but that doesn’t mean there weren’t some worthy contenders. What’s hot? Elmgreen and Dragset and Erwin Wurm were each in a half-dozen or more booths, and Anselm Reyle’s big foil-and-canvas pieces were a reliable eye-catcher for the European galleries.

Our reader survey last month revealed just how many of our visitors self-identify as perverts. If you’re one of that sizeable minority, and you’re in Miami, there’s no excuse not to make your way over to Nicolai Wallner’s booth to catch sneaky glimpses at some 1% snatch with this floor mirror by Jeppe Hein- and yes, we’ve mentioned him three times today. Deal with it.
