Fancy Nasty – Art Basel 2015
Are You More Fancy Or More Nasty?
You’re not fooling anybody. We all know you’re BOTH!
Let’s celebrate the light and the dark in each of us.
Welcome to FANCY NASTY!
For Art Basel 2015, a renegade crew of multi-disciplinary artists have taken control of a huge, soon-to-be-demolished home in an affluent neighborhood in the heart of Miami’s art scene.
Knowing the whole thing will be bulldozed shortly after, each artist has approached the space with the unfettered swagger that typifies a city known as much for raunch as it is for glamour. Destruction is the sweaty lover of construction. And ephemerality befalls even our best laid plans. Miami is almost unrecognizable from just a few years ago. And the Miami you visit today, like the venue for this exhibition, will be gone by the time you return.
If you’re coming to Art Basel, join us. If not, tell someone who is that they are sincerely welcome.
Artists: Stuart Sheldon, Autumn Casey, Jessie Laino, Randy Burman, Benji Cospolite, Hoxxoh, KEMO/MSG, Michael Loveland, Brandon Opalka, Andrea Nhuch, Lori Nozick, Gary Feinberg, Karen Starosta Gilinksi and more.
