Giants in the City

Giants in the CityI'm heading down to Miami later this month for the Art Basel Miami Beach frenzy of art fairs and art events, and one of the things that I'm looking forward to seeing is the Giants in the City project, curated by my good friend Alejamdro Mendoza, which returns to the ABMB festivities with the mobile sculpture project at Bayfront Park in Miami from 2-7 December.

Inflatable art sculptures by Gustavo Acosta, Angel Ricardo Rios, Miguel Fleitas, Maite Josune, Tony Kapel, Anaken Koenig, Frank Hyder, Karen Starosta Gilinski, Maki Hachizume, Noor Blazekovic, Tomas Esson, Federico Uribe, Jose Bedia and the curator, Alejandro Mendoza.

By the way, these inflatable sculptures are looking for a venue to be shown in Washington, DC. Everything travels in suitcases and it is super easy to set up, in case some DC gallery or museum is interested in hosting these gigantic works.
