Aqua Art Miami!

I recently returned from Miami and the amazing art fair week! Through the extreme generosity of Aqua Art Miami, the ASU Art Museum presented I’m Keeping an Eye on You, a curated Video Project Space at Aqua Wynwood, as part of the ASU Art Museum Moving Targets Initiative.

Thanks to Aqua’s Jaq Chartier, Dirk Park, Joshua Weinberg and Bhavin Patel for their incredible energy and support. Thanks as well to the Scenic Group’s Craig Hensala, Simon Watson and Molly Myer for all their promotional efforts and networking support.

A thank you must also go to Jenea Sanchez for assistance in creating program material for the presentation in Miami. Thank you as well to the ASU Art Museum Advisory Board, specifically Eddie and Ellyce Shea, for hosting a preview event of the project at their home in Phoenix.

I must thank Heather Lineberry, Interm Director at the ASU Art Museum for her support in the Museum’s participation.

Lastly, this project would not be possible with out the over 425 artists who submitted work for review and made recommendations of artists for consideration, most specifically the ten artists selected for the final project; Mounira Al Solh, Rachel Garfield, Charlotte Ginsborg, Pia Greschner, Myung-Soo Kim, Yaron Lapid, Jeff Luckey, Johnna MacArthur, Michael Mohan and Corinna Schnitt. The process has been extremely rewarding and through it I have discovered numerous artists that I look forward to working with and presenting their work in future exhibitions.

I’m Keeping an Eye on You travels to the ASU Art Museum, premiering as a full scale exhibition in fall of 2009, so make your plans now to pay us a visit.

Here are some images that will give you a feel of the overall presentation at Aqua Wynwood.

Hope you enjoy!

Little update on artist Sean Duffy

If you visited the ASU Art Museum last summer you will definitely remember Sean Duffy’s turntable and sound installation The Grove.  If you missed it, or just want to experience it again, here is a link to a video created by KJZZ on the project for you.

I just received an email from Sean with information regarding his most recent project and thought I would share the following…

FROM ARTIST SEAN DUFFY:  

I’ve been going nuts with my latest project which has nothing and everything to do with art (I think).  I’m creating a racing team for the 24 hours of Lemons (24hoursoflemons.com) and have been bogged down in prepping our $500 car.  Here’s our site.
