Ceramic fried eggs, critiques of real estate, and a whole booth dedicated to female-identifying saints caught my eye at Untitled, NADA, and Art Miami.
Typically a stronghold of painting, the NADA Miami Beach fair is awash in clay sculpture this year.
There are more than 20 fairs in Miami this week, on top of the rich offerings at the city’s museums and private collections. Here’s a handy way to make sense of it all.
MIAMI BEACH — Though its space has been downsized by roughly 20% this year, NADA Miami Beach 2015 still manages to cut through the swarms of largely uninspired and secondary market Miami Art Week fairs with its distinctive presentation of less polished, more experimental work — which sometimes seems too rough to sell but gets right to the gut of process-based art-making.

MIAMI BEACH — Upon entering this year’s New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) art fair one immediately appreciates the need for this alternative to the larger, establishment art fair down the beach. Unlike Art Basel, NADA Miami Beach has a casual, approachable feel.
With the mercury dropping in the art world power centers of old, it’s time for the annual migration to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach, its ever-expanding roster of satellite fairs and pop-up exhibitions, and the impossible schedule of parties and performances all week long (December 1–7, 2014).
