I had a rare opportunity to take in HOME ALONE: The Sender Collection last night at the now-vacant North Bay Road home of private collector Adam Sender. The exhibit, curated by Sarah Aibel, coincided with the beginning of Art Basel Miami Beach, and is cheekily themed around the idea of what kind of mischief might ensue when a collector leaves his art at home alone.
Of the 70 featured items, many are making their United States debut. Below, a few quick snapshots of the likes of Urs Fischer, Jim Lambie, Jack Pierson, Gilbert & George, and Lawrence Weiner.
Living in Miami, scarf weather is a very special time of year. While it’s not quite here just yet, a few days and a few degrees, and it just may very well happen before Christmas, if we’re lucky! Behold, from Scarves.net (and thanks to my darling friend Nicole), 12 Ways to Tie a Scarf. Be sure to visit their site for more detailed instructions. Happy knotting!
The temperature is getting marginally cooler, which means it’s time for a tiny bit of fall weather in Miami and Art Basel, one of the few bits of concentrated culture we get to experience in our own backyard.
If you haven’t checked out the schedule and made plans to go, I highly recommend it. It’s one of the few times (for me) that living in Miami doesn’t feel like there’s nothing but parties in the sand. This is more like parties and art in the sand – which is just fine with me.
Art Basel Miami Beach runs from December 1st – 4th. For a comprehensive interactive schedule, click here. You can also check out their website for Android and iPhone apps. Hope to see you there!
It’s hard to believe we’re here again, another year at it’s conclusion just a little too soon. And while time seems to go by so quickly, I’m always grateful for this time of reflection, fleeting as it may be.
This year, I’m thankful for my husband and the second wedding anniversary we will celebrate on Monday, our family and the incredible accomplishments they’ve enjoyed, our friends and the life they breathe into our everyday routine, the new business venture that seems to sparkle with promise, and the creative inspiration I’ve been blessed to delight in while making this year count.
Whether you find yourself among friends or family (though often times, they’re one and the same), I wish you a holiday filled with love, joy, and fulfillment. Happy Thanksgiving and many blessings to you and yours!
