More than Thirty Columbia Artists to Exhibit at Art Basel in Miami

November 27, 2017

Thirty-three visual artists, including numerous alumni, one faculty member and three current students, have been selected to showcase their work at the 2017 Art Basel in Miami, Florida. Art Basel, which first came together in the 1970s, features work by established and emerging artists who are represented by “the world’s leading international Modern and contemporary galleries.” All in all, there are “four thousand artworks on display at Art Basel, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, film, video, and digital art,” according to the show's website.


Art Basel at Miami Beach will run from December 7th to December 10th, 2017, and will move on to Hong Kong this coming spring, and Basel, Switzerland in summer 2018.


Kambui Olujimi ‘13, a Visual Arts term appointed faculty member and an alumnus, is exhibiting his work at Aspect Ratio Gallery in Miami. Last month, Professor Olujimi premiered his short film, Where Does the Time Go..., accompanied with a live score, at Lincoln Center in New York City. Current MFA students Delphine Fawundu ‘18—who was interviewed for the Student Spotlight earlier this semester—is showcasing her work at Prizm Art Fair and Pulse Miami Beach, while Hugh Hayden ‘18—whose short film played at Amon Carter Museum of Art in October—is exhibiting at NADA Miami. Alumnus David Brooks ‘09—who recently wrapped up his site-specific installation on Governor’s Island—is now exhibiting at Vizcaya Museum.
