As far as the Miami hotel based satellite fairs go, Aqua Miami has the most charm. Atrium was filled with installations and convivial seating area that made attending feel persuasively like an art fair rather than creeping through hotel windows.
Aqua showcased some very interesting West Coast galleries, and some attractive very street looking art.
Highlights included What it is Projects, from Oak Park IL I really liked this wall installation.
Galerie SAS had an amazing space, with a good mix of work especially these murdered ceramic sculptures by Laurent Craste.
Colourfully nostalgic sentimental photographs by Kelli Connell at Gallery 339.
The Pentimenti Gallery had an amazing program, featuring attractive approachable works. Mark Khaisman’s portraits were especially amazing, created with layers of tape on lightboxes.
