The Undergraduate Art History Association along with the Art Student’s League recently traveled to Art Basel Miami Beach for the weekend (Dec. 7-9). The trip was full of artistic enrichment. The students went to the main convention center where over 260 galleries were showcasing works from over 2000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Several of the students also attended the conversation “Why Japanese Post-War Art Matters Now,” in which the panel consisted of Doryun Chong of the Museum of Modern Art, Mika Yoshitake of the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Alexandra Munroe of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and Allan Schwartzman of Inhochim, Minas Gerais, and the Rachofsky collection.
The students also attended smaller art fairs around the city including INK, NADA (New Art Dealer’s Alliance), Aqua, and Pulse as well. On Sunday before the students left, they viewed both the Margulies and Rubell Family collections.
