Miami Contemporary Artists
Miami Contemporary Artists by Paul Clemence and Julie Davidow, just launched at Art Basel, is a survey of the city’s burgeoning art scene. Over a hundred artists are covered in this look at what makes Miami’s art scene so vibrant all year round. The authors are both Miami artists who have an insider’s view of the Miami-Dade art scene. Over 300 colour photos take the reader into the beginnings of a culture that is hot through to the sizzle today. From artists with a wide-ranging following like Hernan Bas to local favourites like Bhakti Baxter, this book provides a flavourful taste of Miami’s visual art.
