Manifesto: Art X Agency is comprised of over 100 works of artists who used manifestos to deal with the social and political battles of their lifetime. A manifesto is a published declaration which aims towards a viewpoint or truth through music, writing or art in a unique way. Usually related to fighting authority to spread a political and/or social message, this form of art captivates and ignites a wave of influence. Organized by the Hirshhorn’s Chief Curator Stéphane Aquin, the last day to see this great curation is on January 5th, 2020.
Featured artists: Jean Arp, Giacomo Balla, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dalí, Helen Frankenthaler, George Grosz, Hannah Höch, René Magritte, André Masson, Joan Miró, Joan Mitchell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock and Tsuruko Yamazaki.

In the wake of Art Basel 2017, South Florida is being flooded by artists and enthusiasts from around the world. Miami being one of the hot spots causes traffic for everyone including locals and those commuting to and from work. With my love for art, I avoid the large crowds and simply visit the exhibitions on their down time. Above is the work of the great contemporary artist, Marisset. Born in Havanna, Cuba and emigrating to the U.S. with her family at the age of 3, she has become one of today's most striking creators in the art community. With work being exposed in galleries all over South Florida, her work is great to get a hold of.

Private Vault is a moment for a dealer or your client to offer an art piece to the public without being overburdened by managing an entire booth for the duration of the fair.
This could be beneficial for a single painting, a rare work on paper, or a relief sculpture. Your choice work can range from Modern to Contemporary. Works by Matt Mullican, Mary Heilmann and Keith Haring are some of the first pieces to be on display.
For the newcomers, X Contemporary is an art fair and exhibition platform motivated by bringing historical context to the international art scene. The second edition opens at the brand new Nobu Hotel Miami Beach from November 30 – December 4, 2016 under the new leadership of Executive Director Crystal Curtis and Consulting Curator Michael Klein.

Being listed 163 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time, Prince's 5th studio album, 1999, became his breakthrough album back in 1982. All of his album covers were unique in a certain way either focusing on art or fashion and also a hint of politics. The cover of the album features details from the front cover of his previous album, Controversy namely the eyes and the "Rude Boy" pin in the "1999", the jacket studs in the "R" and the smile in the "P". The "1" in Prince contains the words "and the Revolution" written backwards, both recognizing his backing band and foretelling the next four exploding years of his career.
