RADIO // Art Basel Miami BeachMiami 2004: Rush Interactive
Originally aired 12/3/04
With the art market looking like the Wall Street of the 1990s, some ask if such trade shows as Art Basel are not toxic places for artists to visit - too garish if their art is selling, too depressing if it isn't. Or are art fairs valuable places for artists to develop contacts with the rest of the art-world food chain? Here California College of the Arts graduate dean Lawrence Rinder, in Miami as curator of "Wiggin Village" the exhibition by Jim Drain and Ara Peterson at The Moore Space, in Miami's Design District, joins Oliver Herring and Jennifer and Kevin McCoy to weigh in on the "art" part of art fairs.
