Four years after Superstorm Sandy, Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse is reminding us that the damage to New York's Rockaway Beach is still very real.
Every minute you spend waiting for the check in an overpriced Miami Beach restaurant, or standing in line for a subpar Cuban sandwich, or waving down a bartender for an $11 can of beer, or, well, sleeping in your hotel, is time you're not spending with the art that you came to Miami for in the first place.
The Venice Biennale is built on paradox and contradiction: against the grain of globalization, the Biennale follows a model of representation by nation-states, and its non-commercial structure is undermined by the extravagant cost of mounting an exhibition there.
