MIAMI///OPENINGS: THE ART BASEL “KAIJU MONSTER INVASION”
Last nite's decidedly low-fi "Kaiju Monster Invasion" opening at ART BASEL provided a much needed respite from the somber art business at hand in the art world's current Ground Zero, aka: Miami. Presented by the SOUTH FLORIDA ART CENTER and curated by local gallery owner HAROLD GOLEN, the show of paintings and sculpture celebrating vintage Japanese movie monster culture by 30+ artists including RON ENGLISH, GLENN BARR, COOP, JIM WOODRING, ISABEL SAMARAS, CHRIS RECCARDI, AMANDA VISELL, and NAOTO HATTORI, among others, served as a de facto place of worship for wayward otaku fan boys & girls lost amid the self-seriousness of the big fair's (slow moving) blue chip offerings.
