The Artpark by The Arsenale at Art Basel Miami

The Artpark by The Arsenale at Art Basel Miami - TheArsenale

Main character of the world’s hottest art week is the Art Basel. The Swiss modern art exhibition, held in Miami design district, hosted almost 300 of the most important galleries of this year’s event. The Artpark by The Arsenale had a central role, bringing automotive as the core of one of the most visited and important galleries.

Main pieces exposed at the concept store were ‘The Wild Bunch’ with Adel Abdessemed, Gianni Motti and Franck Perrin and ‘Free Money’ with duo ‘Hotmess’ Luka Sabbat and Noah Dillon, consisting of a series of artistic performances: The ‘works’ for sale were 300 different framed one-hundred-dollar bills collected from stores across America, each one of them listed depending on its worth in the place it was obtained in, ranging from a $14,000 Save-a-Lot one in Kentucky, to a one dollar Benjamin from Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, sold at the opening. Furthermore, the duo made the exhibition name real installing an ATM literally dispensing money for the whole night.

Apart from this, motion was the real fulcrum of the gallery, with an Infiniti F1 car starring at the center of the room, Frances Wilks works intermingling the erotic power of Formula 1 gear and feminine body and a Chevy El Camino dedicated corner by Arielle Pytka.

Many other authoritative artists exposed at the newly opened concept store and the finest delegates of the international jet set came to visit the exhibition, including Louis Vuitton artistic director Virgil Abloh.
