Hollywood native Danny Glass will be presenting a new solo exhibition during Spectrum Miami, a satellite exhibit of Art Basel, starting on December 6th. The juried contemporary art show runs concurrently with Art Basel from December 6 – 10, 2017 as part of Miami Art Week. You can see Glass’s exhibit, “Appraising the Art World,” at Spectrum in Booth S1116.
“Appraising the Art World,” is a collection of paintings which captures glimpses of people engaging with works of art displayed in public spaces, or with works tucked away in private settings. Among the works being shown in Miami are two new paintings, Cohort B and Harlem Jazz Museum.
In Cohort B, a group of art students attending Art Basel Miami observes a painting by appropriation artist Richard Prince in Dacra’s Art & Design private collection. Appropriation artists use pre-existing images or objects, sometimes with little or no transformation applied to them, in the creation of a new work. Prince’s use of an image from Patrick Cariou’s book Yes: Rasta resulted in a copyright infringement suit that claimed the work was not transformed enough.
In Harlem Jazz Museum, tuxedoed pianist Loren Schoenberg, the jazz historian and Founding Director & Senior Scholar at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, tests the tuning of Duke Ellington’s white baby grand piano for a final time as it is being appraised for sale at auction. While working at an auction house in Manhattan, Mr. Glass recorded the moment.
Other new paintings depict individuals as they engage (or don’t) with Art Basel itself. In one painting, artists take care of paperwork. In another, visitors sit in a lounge – a woman texts on her phone. It’s a look at what people do at an art show when they are not looking at art.
