Create! Magazine x Art Girl Rising Collaboration

THEY ARE FINALLY HERE! We’re so excited to bring you a side project that we’ve been working on for a few months with Liezel Strauss, founder of Art Girl Rising. You’ve likely seen us sharing our obsession with her now Insta-famous t-shirts that each list a set of five iconic women artists. We couldn’t resist being a part of her incredible project to support the National Museum of Women in the Arts as well as their #5womenartists campaign so we created a special edition t-shirt (in gray & pink) with five women artists who we love. A portion of the proceeds from each shirt sold will be donated to the museum. As an all female team, we here at Create! Magazine want to do the most that we can to both provide more opportunities for contemporary women artists and also to be educators and champions for all of the women in the art world today!

You can purchase these special edition shirts directly from our webshop! *We only made a limited amount of them so make sure to get yours before they sell out.

Learn more about Art Girl Rising in an interview with Liezel from our 2018 Miami Edition.

Who are Hilma, Mickalene, Marina, Shirin, and Judy?

Hilma

When Swedish artist Hilma af Klint began creating radically abstract paintings in 1906, they were like little that had been seen before: bold, colorful, and untethered from any recognizable references to the physical world. It was years before Kandinsky, Malevich, Mondrian, and others would take similar strides to rid their own artwork of representational content. Yet while many of her contemporaries published manifestos and exhibited widely, af Klint kept her paintings largely private. She rarely exhibited them and, convinced the world was not yet ready to understand her work, stipulated that it not be shown for twenty years following her death. Ultimately, her work was all but unseen until 1986, and only over the subsequent three decades has it begun to receive serious attention.

Read more: https://www.guggenheim.org/exhibition/hilma-af-klint

Mickalene

Mickalene Thomas, who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, is best known for her elaborate paintings composed of rhinestones, acrylic and enamel. She draws on art history and popular culture to create a contemporary vision of female sexuality, beauty, and power. Blurring the distinction between object and subject, concrete and abstract, real and imaginary, Thomas constructs complex portraits, landscapes, and interiors in order to examine how identity, gender, and sense-of-self are informed by the ways women (and “feminine” spaces) are represented in art and popular culture.

Read more: https://www.mickalenethomas.com/about

Marina

Marina Abramović, born November 30, 1946, is a Serbian performance artist, writer, and art filmmaker. Her work explores body art, endurance art and feminist art, the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind. Being active for over four decades, Abramović refers to herself as the "grandmother of performance art". She pioneered a new notion of identity by bringing in the participation of observers, focusing on "confronting pain, blood, and physical limits of the body".

Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marina_Abramovi%C4%87

Shirin

Shirin Neshat is a contemporary Iranian artist best known for films such as Rapture (1999), which explore the relationship between women and the religious and cultural value systems of Islam. Born on March 26, 1957 in Qazin, Iran, she left to study in the United States at the University of California at Berkeley before her the Iranian Revolution in 1979. While her early photographs were overtly political, her film narratives tend to be more abstract, focusing around themes of gender, identity, and society. The split-screened video Turbulent (1998) won Neshat the First International Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1999.

Judy

Born July 20, 1939 in Chicago, IL, Judy Chicago is an artist, author, feminist, educator, and intellectual whose career now spans five decades. In 1974, Chicago turned her attention to the subject of women’s history to create her most well-known work, The Dinner Party, which was executed between 1974 and 1979 with the participation of hundreds of volunteers. This monumental multimedia project, a symbolic history of women in Western Civilization, has been seen by more than one million viewers during its sixteen exhibitions held at venues spanning six countries.

Art Miami, Context and Aqua 2018 Staff Picks

This is our second year being a proud media partner of Art Miami Fairs. As if visiting sunny Miami is not inspiring enough, we got to explore thousands of artworks from across the globe. There were incredible, innovative pieces that stuck out to us from every art career level, but we had to narrow it down to a select few.

Here are our picks from Art Miami, Context and Aqua fairs from the 2018 edition.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Leslie Feely Gallery

www.lesliefeely.com

Friedel Dzubas,  First Run , 1972 Acrylic on Canvas, 96Hx96Win

Friedel Dzubas, First Run, 1972 Acrylic on Canvas, 96Hx96Win

Interview with Dakota Sica

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Leslie Feely Gallery is located on the Upper East Side in New York City. We specialize in Post War and Contemporary Art.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

This year we have a dedicated a section to Richard Diebenkorn, highlighting works from every period of his career.

Including examples of early abstract drawings, stunning figurative works, and an impressive Ocean Park.

Another star of our booth is “First Run" a rare large-scale painting by Friedel Dzubas - this never before seen work is a Dzubas masterpiece.

It will be accompanied by smaller paintings that illustrate the artist’s contributions to color field painting.

We are also proud to present the works of Kikuo Saito. These large-scale gestural abstractions sing with color!

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

I recommend that visitors ask questions. It is very rewarding to talk with people about the work of an artist they may or may not know. Art Miami is an inclusive fair where experienced and new collectors come to learn and grow their collections.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design

www.priveekollektie.art

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Georgia Mowry

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design is a leading international gallery specialised in contemporary art and collectible design. Based in The Netherlands, Priveekollektie actively works with a range of collectors, represents internationally recognised artists and designers, and provides a platform for up-and-coming talents to showcase their exceptional pieces.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

Priveekollektie exhibits pieces each year at Art Miami that have never been shown in America before. With a focus on the best artists with a European identity, we plan to bring new, exciting and interesting works based upon our three pillars: concept, quality, and value. The works shown feature a highly curated selection of new and exclusive works. One of these works to look out for is the hand tufted tapestry, Luxuria 99, by Dutch artist Catharina van de Ven.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Priveekollektie recommends three things to visitors and collectors: to explore the restaurants and nightlife, to visit the private collections that specially open during the week but are normally not open to the public to view, and to have sheer enjoyment of the art crowd and audience that arrives in Miami for this week only.

Do not try and do too much, spend more time at fewer locations. Come early.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion

www.galeriedominion.ca

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Tim Dunn and Sara Landau

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Landau Contemporary acquired the Dominion Gallery, Canada's oldest and most prestigious private art establishment in October 2005. The gallery offers a stunning showcase for modern masters alongside an exciting ensemble of contemporary international artists including Yves Zurstrassen, Christoph Kiefhaber, Kwang-Young Chun and Tony Scherman. Landau Contemporary is also the exclusive North American dealer for the Austrian master, architect and artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

"Landau Fine Art was already well established as one of the world's leading galleries specializing in early 20th century international art," explains Canadian art dealer Robert Landau. "Dominion represented a unique opportunity to offer the works of living artists under the umbrella of their more famous 20th century predecessors.”

The partnership between Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion and Landau Fine Art guarantees a wealth of choice for art lovers and collectors to experience, in an extensive exhibition space exceeding 20,000 square feet in a stunning Victorian landmark on Sherbrooke Street West.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

history will come alive at Landau Contemporary at Art Miami, where we will be featuring an exceptional collection of paintings and sculptures from the Estate of Antoni Clavé, which will be presented alongside Britain’s most celebrated modern sculptor, Henry Moore, among others. Both of these extraordinary exhibitions will include works that span over 40 years of the Artist’s careers. These are only two of the highlights that will be on exhibit exclusively at Art Miami this December, where Landau Contemporary will feature over 100 artworks in 2,000 square feet of exhibition space.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

We encourage collectors to take the time to really look and interact with the works on display. Great artworks repay the attention they are given, and the more you look the more you have an opportunity to see. Experiencing and engaging with art is a slow burning process, so don’t try to absorb everything in one visit.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Galerie von Vertes

www.vonvertes.com

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Quirine Verlinde

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Founded by Laszlo Vertes, the eponymous gallery was conceived as an international exhibition platform specializing in 20th- and 21st-century art. Centrally located on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich the gallery builds and manages private and public collections, organizes exhibitions and gives lectures on art and art market related subjects. “With Vertes I tried to create a democratic space for the exploration and understanding of the inexhaustible diversity of art and its creators.“ Exceptional pieces by Albers, Calder, Chagall, Chamberlain, Condo Ernst, Francis, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Miró, Richter, Soulages, Vasarely, Warhol and Wesselmann are permanently on display in the 200 square meter gallery in Zurich.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

For the 2018 Edition of Art Miami we are showcasing a bold selection of 20th and 21st century paintings, works on paper and sculptures. Specific focus points are a variety of stabiles by Alexander Calder, mesmerizing Infinity Nets and Infinity Dots by Yayoi Kusama, intriguing portraits by George Condo and vibrant abstract works by Gerhard Richter.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Collecting is about art, its creators, the history behind it, the development of our personal taste, spirituality, connection and a way of life. Collecting is piecing together the story of you a a collector human being in this world. The price and the name of the artist are of minor importance. What is important is the connection you feel with a particular work of art and that from the moment it hangs on your wall you keep discovering new elements that you did you did not see before. A work of art invites the beholder to stay and linger and adds an element of joy and wonder to every home.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Galerie Terminus GMBH

www.galerie-terminus.de

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview With Wilhelm J. Grusdat

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Art is not only our business, but it is also our passion. Specifically, we see our role as the mediator between collectors and artists. A very special vision is necessary to recognize a work of art as a potential masterpiece and as a valid manifestation of form and ideas.

Only when all of these come together, can an artwork truly radiate that very special aura to which a viewer immediately feels drawn. An exceptional work of art has much more to offer than that which meets the eye. It is this quality to which the Galerie Terminus aspires.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

At this year’s Art Miami we present the highlights of our current program and exciting new additions consisting of famous artists as well as young talents. We bring these two perspectives into context with each other at the fair, both as contrast and as correspondents.

On the one side, we show big names and great American Pop-Artists such as John Chamberlain, Roy Lichtenstein, Mel Ramos, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and Tom Wesselmann.

On the other side, we bring young contemporary artists into focus with the Germans Christian Awe, Jan Davidoff, and Tatjana Tartakovska.

We are very proud to also be able to include exciting new works from our current program by Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke Gerhard Richter, and Günther Uecker. To round things up, it is our very special pleasure to exclusively present a number of early works by Georg Baselitz as well as an exquisitely typical work by Sigmar Polke.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Our presentation boils down to the bottom line which we wish to present to our fair visitors and all new art collectors: Always be on the lookout for works by artists with an international standing who are able to touch your heart and mind.

Art Miami Exhibitor Highlight: Galerie Forsblom

www.galerieforsblom.com

Booth AM117

December 4 –9, 2018

In its 29th edition, Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's modern and contemporary art fair market and is globally recognized as a primary destination for the acquisition of the most important works from the 20th and 21st centuries.


Interview with Katarina Siltavuori

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Galerie Forsblom, founded by Kaj Forsblom in 1977, holds a unique position on the Nordic art scene as one of the largest and most international contemporary art galleries by bringing international established artists to its exhibition spaces in Helsinki and Stockholm. While the exhibition programs consist of a wide range of media within the visual arts, Galerie Forsblom is highly profiled as presenting excellence in contemporary painting as well as sculpture.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

Galerie Forsblom showcases both established American artists, such as Peter Halley, Jacob Hashimoto, and Keith Sonnier and young Finnish rising stars, Toni R. Toivonen and Reima Nevalainen.

Our booth presents a coherent synergy between playfulness and harmony – the booth is curated with a joyful spirit as Peter Halley’s bright-colored, neo-geometric conceptualist works juxtapose Jason Martin’s large-scale monochromatic sculptural paintings which consist of thick surfaces of oil or acrylic gel.

The booth prevails a lingering harmonic atmosphere with Jacob Hashimoto’s works, which combine Japanese handicraft tradition with Anglo-American minimalism, Stephan Balkenhol’s raw and spontaneous wood sculptures, and Bernar Venet’s dynamic steel sculptures and arches, playing with gravity and three-dimensionality.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Be curious and ambitious. Let passion be your guide and trust your instincts. Buying art can be fun – and don’t be afraid to go big!
