ART BASEL FAVORITE #5
Now that Art Basel is over, we’re highlighting some of our favorites from Miami through this week. To begin, what could be more chic than a Swarovski crystal-covered Heartschallenger ice cream truck? Artists covered the truck bumpers to hubcaps with around half a million sparkling crystals from Swarovski, finished off with a pink hearts and a unicorn logo on the hood. An über-cute, Japanese-influenced aesthetic, and one of our Art basel highlights!
Renowned Parisian photographer Maurice Renoma has returned to New York for his solo exhibition ‘MODOGRAPHE’ (fashionographer). The Bertrand Delacroix Gallery is hosting the exhibit, that features a series of playful, sensual and provocative color and gray-scale photographs that lie at the intersection of the things we love most: fashion, photography, and art! Discover images and the review from artefuse.com, here.
MATISSE IN SF
Celebrating the Bay Area’s early and long-standing enthusiasm for the French artist Henri Matisse, 27 paintings, drawings, and bronzes are now on display at the Legion of Honor museum. The display has been sourced from the internationally acclaimed collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and SFMOMA!
You can’t help but be delighted by the consummate skill of the Rockettes, who once again fold themselves into a human accordion in their trademark number “The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” during the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. The New York Christmas-time tradition has opened to rave reviews at Radio City Music Hall, only minutes from Sofitel New York. Don’t miss it!
VAN GOGH SELFIE
Take your own Van Gogh selfie at 'Van Gogh Repetitions', the new exhibit at Washington DC’s Phillips Collection. The exhibition provides a close look at Vincent Van Gogh’s best-known works, “to examine how and why he repeated certain compositions during his 10-year career,” according to the museum. Some of these paintings, such as the 1889 Portrait of Camille Roulin, or his 1889 painting The Road Menders. Magnifique!

THE WYNWOOD WALLS
Conceived by the renowned placemaker Tony Goldman in 2009 and co-curated by Jeffrey Deitch (now director of one of our favorite LA destinations, the MOCA Los Angeles), the Wynwood Walls turned a dreary warehouse district into a spectacular canvas for graffiti art. Indeed the venture has brought the world’s greatest artists working in the graffiti and street art genre to Miami, to create a truly a museum of the streets. It has to be seen to be believed!
TINA TURNER AT SOFITEL LA
The Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills celebrates its commitment to French culture with “Elles by Gilles Bensimon.” The exhibit, which was unveiled last month features 25 stunning black-and-white images of the world’s most iconic women, as captured by the renowned French photographer. One of our favorites is this magnifique image of the queen of rock and roll herself, Tina Turner.

ROOM TO LIVE
The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) is the only museum in LA devoted exclusively to contemporary art. It has always been one of our favorite places which is no wonder, as it has developed one of the nation’s most renowned permanent collections. Right now we are excited about the show “Room To Live”, that takes a peek into the collection to show off new, big works to the city, many of which are being shown for the first time. Organized by Curator Bennett Simpson, the exhibition will include works in painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video, and slide-projection - large in size and impact. Don’t miss it!
Traveling to DC this month? Don’t miss “American Journeys: Visions of Place”, the new installation of the Corcoran’s renowned pre-1945 American paintings and sculpture collection. The exhibit conveys the changing notion of place in the history of American art and features more paintings than have ever been on view in the galleries of historic American art.
