“I’m not one for art fairs so much,” admits Dustin Yellin, the artist and Pioneer Works founder. “They are like weird high school reunions: you run into everyone you know and everyone you don’t know.” Couldn’t have possibly said it better. “You see a lot of art that you don’t love,” he said. Touché.
Yellin swooped into Miami from a solo show in Amsterdam at Grimm Gallery on Friday, mostly to give a talk at Art Basel, after which we chatted. Later that day he called me back; he’d ended up checking out some art and was surprised by how much stuff he liked.
So here it is—Yellin’s list of cool art to check out before Miami Art Week is over—in a few hours. Get to it.—Guelda Voien
