CULINARY ART BASIL 2021

Our Event – Our Mission – Small Acts – BIG Impact! Well, Care Because We Care.

As the global ‘time out’  grinds on unabated ArtBasel, Art Miami, Scope Nada Miami, Aqua Art Miami, Red Dot, Art Now Fair (under the Direction of gallerist George Billis), CONTEXT and Spectrum have announced their cancellations. ( https://art-collecting.com/miami_art_fairs.htm )

The highly anticipated debut of SuperBlue Miami that was set to un spool on December 22 is the latest activation to capitulate in the the face of travel restrictions, draconian social distancing and a general malaise that has the public in in its grasp.  Described as an immersive experience situated in a 50,000 renovated warehouse, the installation has the backing of the Pace Gallery, the adjacent Rubbell Museum and a coterie of Tony Goldman real estate executives. News of its cancellation on November 5 was met with a crescendo of sighs.  The disappointment was palpable, especially since even the Miami Herald had reported  that the show would go on – Covid or No’.  Gallerists in Miami’s burgeoning new cultural center, Allapattah,that include the Bonneir, the Spinello Project ,Butter Design Studio with Francisco De La Torre in the Gesamt Kunsrwekare Building, Ori Gal’s Galori and Merc Studios among them are all a  palettes throw from the iconic Wynwood Art District.  Talk on the Avenue is a by- invitation-only Art Walk is in the works where masks and socially distanced merriment with an open house vibe will be staged to coincide with if Design Miami at the Moore Building remains the last activation standing.

The art set is watching developments that suggest the Big Tent shows may reschedule in the Spring of 2021. As Culinary ArtBasil.org enters its first decade it has been a perennial showcase of cosmopolitan cultural diversity including cuisine, design, sustainable conscious lifestyle, health, beauty and wellness and leading edge Art. Popping up in South Florida, Southern California, New York and beyond,  “We are in the midst of entertaining the idea of producing a small pre-emptive gathering in the burgeoning ‘Art-Appatah’ , a term coined by visionary developer James Quinlan, in the Fashion Allapattah Design Destination (FAD.D)  in December.  The reception – art walk would serve as a lead up to a full blown neighborhood activation when the big tents return.,”  states a spokesperson from the ad hoc ArtBasil group..
