Ground Control at Art Basel

The exhibition Ground Control, organized by Nicholas Baume, Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund, featured outdoor and site-specific works in Collins Park for the Public sector of Art Basel. From November 30th to December 4th the works were produced in collaboration with The Bass Museum of Art and supported by MGM Resorts Arts and Culture. Challenging some of the norms for public sculpture the works invite visitors to engage in innovative ways, as some sculptures shape shift with interaction. Favorites from the exhibition are below!

Go Into the Deep with this exhibition at the Museum of Glass! It truly felt like you were exploring the deep blue seas with the transparency and vibrant colors of the ocean.

An incredible exhibition I saw twice within its exhibition run. The fusion of decades of work is a testimony to the relevance and impact the AIDS epidemic has on our society.
