Miami Art Basel 2014 - Day 3, Part 1

Our third day at Art Basel was so full and we took so many pictures that I had to split this post in two. The art is so interesting and beautiful that I wanted to make sure I showed as much as possible. One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the Terry O'Neill gallery, a photographer famous for having shot the most interesting people of the 60s. He blew up some of his most famous photos, like the ones of Brigitte, Raquel and Sinatra, among others, and exposed the giant frames in a small industrial space that provided the perfect backdrop to his pieces. Nothing short of amazing.

Another gallery that was particularly interesting, and that happened to be right across the street from the Terry O'Neill space, was named Lulu Laboratorium and boasted some really fun pop art. With that pop art influence comes societal irony by definition, with super interesting pieces denouncing the 1% through a dollar bill selfie, works that poked fun at Yeezy and smokers, for example. Each piece was more fun and interesting than the next.

Those two places were by far some of my favorites of the entire trip. Stay tuned as I roll out the second part of day this week!
