I’m thrilled to announce my latest curatorial project, a special partnership between myself and Claressinka Anderson of Marine Contemporary presenting Recordings of a Lone Infantryman, a solo exhibition of recent work by artist Mark Schoening.

Each December, the art world heads to Miami for the international art fair Art Basel Miami Beach. The goal of this 4-day extravaganza is ostensibly to buy, look, talk and think about art. This year, the fair turned ten and cemented its reputation as the ruckus and slightly inebriated younger sibling of the staid and serious Art Basel in Switzerland.
Several weeks ago, I caught up with one of my favorite emerging artists, Mark Schoening. I have been following his career for a few years now and I find that his work brings together concept and craft, something often missing in contemporary art. His work is technically and visually strong and the concepts he explores are compelling. You don’t need a curator sitting next to you explaining his work in order to connect with it but you also don’t feel like you’re looking at a decorative art work that doesn’t have much to say.
