Art Public, curated this year for the second time by Patrick Charpenel of Guadalajara, Mexico, features 9 projects by internationally renowned artists from seven countries. The projects will be installed in the outdoor public spaces of Miami Beach, within close proximity to the Oceanfront area and the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The 2010 edition of Art Public will present works that engage directly with the viewer, interrupting the daily routine of passersby in poetic and surprising ways.
Most of the works are site-specific and commissioned for Art Basel Miami Beach, including the projects by François Bucher and Minerva Cuevas; Fyodor Pavlov Andreevich will present a new site-specific performance.
