After 4 days, 8 art fairs, and nearly 700 gallery booths, we are eager to report a selection of the many impressive artworks on view in Miami this week. Reflecting back, we picked up on a recurring theme that we see as a sign of the times: many artists are creating work that evidences the ubiquitous presence of technology in society, while others are returning to handmade traditional craft media such as ceramic and textile. Here is selection of our favorite finds from Art Basel, Untitled, Pulse, NADA, and Miami Project.
