Gallery Girls' Angela Pham on Art Basel, Miami Stereotypes, and Liz and Amy's "Blonde Drama"
- Liz Margulies: "Amy is Her Own Worst Enemy"
- Last week's Gallery Girls recap
For us, the show, featuring seven art-loving ladies trying to conquer New York City's creative side, was all about Miami girls Amy Poliakoff and Liz Margulies. But Angela Pham -- she of the bird-inspired couture, the iPhone snobbery, and the pop-up gallery at Cafeina during Art Basel last year -- is in close contention for the title of Most Entertaining Gallery Girl, Non-Miami Division.
When we called her up, she was quick to divulge her thoughts on everything from the Miami art scene to why she thinks Magic City girls are a bunch of spoiled brats.
Cultist: We just saw you ladies take Miami. What do you think of our town?
Angela Pham: I love it. I had that idea of what Miami was and it actually surpassed it. It's so different than New York. I am actually from California and they don't even compare. Vibrant colors; I mean, I just love it there.
Well, the real question is, did you ladies have fun?
It's hard for me not to have fun there. I usually always go down for Basel and just came down for South Beach Food and Wine Festival. I mean, you cant not have fun in Miami during those times. It's the perfect excuse to get out of New York.
Art Basel: Love it or Leave It?
I don't think I can name one artist that I saw. Art Basel to me is less about art and more about the jetsetter lifestyle. I mean, I don't go for the art. I have been going for the last two years for the parties. It's the place to be.
