On the eve of Pulse Miami 2015, we hosted a meet and greet with director of Pulse Contemporary Art Fair, Helen Toomer. We are honored have been recognized by her and twice by Miami New Times as a leader in the art scene for both Pulse Miami Beach and Art Basel Miami Beach this year.
What are some of the galleries and artist you’re most excited to work with this year?
I’m excited about having a good Miami representation there from Mindy Solomon, Emerson Dorsch, Art Lexing, among others.
What’s your read on the present state of the Miami art scene? What are its strengths and weaknesses?
I’ve been chatting with a couple of people, and Mindy Solomon has already moved [to Little River], so has Emerson Dorsch, and Primary Projects is moving as well. The spaces are shifting. It’s happening in New York, Chelsea people are coming to the Lower East Side and now that’s getting expensive. I think the Miami scene is a microcosm of the global scene, and it’s happening all around the world.
And, if you haven’t visited our new location in Little River yet, you won’t want to miss our upcoming exhibit opening October 23rd: The Way We See It: The Photography of Scot Sothern and Muir Vidler.
