Is there seriously no blog who does a preview of Wynwood Second Saturdays anymore? Are we totally missing something? We searched around in the Miami Herald blog aggregator (so useful) and found nothing. We'll we're a "blog," we could do that. I guess.
Deciding to do this at 3:00 pm on a Friday doesn't exactly guarantee a well curated, completely in the know round up, but maybe we'll get it together in the future.
So yeah, it's June, six months away from our Basel, and the Basel Basel is in full swing right now. So the heart of the art world locally and internationally is elsewhere right now, but there's still some things worth checking out in Wynwood this Saturday.
A person we pay to write who actually knows what he's talking about, P. Scott Cunnhngham already wrote about Michael Genovese's first solo show in Miami "It's Not the Heat, It's the Humility" (one "hah") at O.H.W.O.W. here

Dorsch Gallery is hosting F(r)acture: Divisions in Painting

The artists were invited "to produce functional lighting objects and/or realistic schemes for ambient illumination. In other words, they have been invited not so much to produce artsy, one-of-a-kind lamps as to develop well-thought prototypes that can be mass-produce and exist in the world much like any other designed object must."
