After swigging several dozen Stefan Sagmeister-tinis over at the Wolfsonian, we zig-zagged over to the Paris Theater where NADA (that would be the New Art Dealers Alliance) and ANP Quarterly hosted Nike’s “Re-Run” vintage running exhibition for the final stop on its four-city tour. The mystery musical act Car Clutch? It was actually ANP’s Brendan Fowler (who up until now we knew as BARR) and Ethan Swan. We caught Gang Gang Dance thrashing away while a packed-to-capacity crowd went wild in the orchestra pit. Unhappier hipsters waited in the lines that stretched outside until last call.
The installation snaked two stories high into the gorgeous Art Deco interiors, where Aaron Rose gathered work from a group of artists we’d like to call the next generation of Beautiful Losers: Scott Campbell, Tracy Nakayama, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Kime Buzzelli, Steven Harrington, Jesse Spears (who we’re still loving for her tattoo booth at Swerve), Eric Mast, Mike Pare, Jo Ratcliff and Alexis Ross, who painted the killer portrait of legendary long-distance runner Steve Prefontaine below. Photos are by Dan Monick and Jeaneen Lund. Graphics on the over 300 panels are by Keith Scharwath, with more images here. More Miaminess shots from Ed Templeton at ANP’s blog.
