During Art Basel there are many fairs that hang on it’s coattails, what with all the collectors in town you’d be silly not to! Pulse is an established fair which also shows in NYC (much like Scope) and heads south in the winter. Here are my favorites from this contemporary art fair.

Like I said in the previous post, Art Basel didn’t have very much photography. These three portraits really drew me in with a beautiful use of light and neutral tones.

This little guy just cracked me up. I love art that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Gregory Euclide, 2010
Euclide wanted to drive a message with this installation of the packing crates it took to ship his work to Miami: These fairs have a much larger impact on our earth than one would think.
He used one of these crates to house a small installation. You’re encouraged to put your cell phone camera to a tiny hole on the crate and shoot a photo to see the scene on the inside.
