Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

If you're not afraid of a little color, and we mean that in almost all senses of the word, Pulse Art Fair was for you. With a strong commitment to new works and contemporary artists, Pulse gives you a window into the mind of young artists. And what you'll find, more often than not, is a subversive, technicolor dreamscape.

We totally did look inside that hole, but the video in there wasn't as exciting as the instructions.

​Yeah, they done hung Mickey Mouse.

Who says the art world is an unquestionably liberal realm?

​The photo can't really capture this work. It was inside a room, with a sign on the floor asking you to take off your shoes. I didn't see it enforced, but everyone did. Once inside, you saw this image projected in an ever-narrowing room.

​The Okay Mountain Corner Store had a drastically different sales strategy but seemed more than a little reminiscent of Xu Zhen's ShanghART Supermarket, which was on display at Basel a few years ago.

​If I had the money, I'd buy this piece for Sweat Records.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
