Miami Beach Art Basel Beckons :: Articles :: Gotham Magazine: "Another exciting partnership that also returns in December is Art Video, a series of public art film screenings on the 7,000 square foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, designed by Frank Gehry. . . . For those planning to attend Art Basel Miami Beach this year, make sure to break-away from the confines of the Convention Center and visit the legendary private collections and increasingly prominent art spaces that show some of the most avant-garde work around. Miami’s stock of private collections is located in the Wynwood neighborhood, just north of downtown Miami. This revitalized community now boasts the Rubell Family Collection, which is housed in a former DEA drug warehouse and features a list of who’s who in the art world including Jeff Koons, Kara Walker, and Cindy Sherman. Also of particular interest is World Class Boxing, the collection of Debra and Dennis Scholl, which houses their eclectic treasures in a former boxing gym. . . . "

The cylinder reads like a late 1960s edifice or outdoor sculpture, which is now used as art storage. Mark Hagen [To be Titled (Additive Sculpture, Miami Screen), 2012] made a sculpture, related to his body of work from “Made in L.A.” [the 2012 Los Angeles biennial at the Hammer Museum], of poured concrete in cheap beverage containers. He culled different containers from the Miami Beach area to create the screen sculpture. . . . "
