Our calendar signing party takes place tomorrow at Sargent’s Daughters between 6 and 8 pm. You better come!
Possibly the best thing Pulse has going for it is their VIP lounge. Set at the back of their tent on the beach, this balcony gives collectors an incredible view of the ocean. When I visited met two friends who had been there for most of the day and were deliriously happy. That’s what you want.
The new tent is a much-needed departure from the Ice Palace, which thanks to a few rocky years of leadership, many now associate with leaks, poor exhibitors and poor sales.
This Petra Cortright GIF found on giphy reminds me quite a bit of Jennifer Chan’s “Hands Around the World”, which debuted in GIFbites earlier with this year, paired with the Spice Girls song “2 Become 1”. Both offer a mix of beauty and nauseating 1980s consumerist/early Internet optimism. The shine is off the rose in both departments; I see them as sunsets.
Unlike years prior, where the sales were so quick dealers actually lost track of what they sold to whom, NADA was a little quieter. Nobody was complaining, as pretty much everyone had made back their costs and then some, but perhaps some of the other satellite fairs such as UNTITLED. have finally managed to tear away a share of the emerging market.
