As Wendy pointed out, The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl has inspired a number of artists in the show to continue producing record-based works. Art Basel Miami Beach has proven that the trend is alive and well in artists even beyond the Nasher Museum’s current exhibition.
In addition to the beautiful Christian Marclay work Trevor incorporated in his top 10 list, Blum & Poe displayed a beautiful new record spine work by Dave Muller. The four-part acrylic on paper entitled “(Fill) (In) (Blank)” breaks from the “Top Ten” series we see in The Record and makes visual and linguistic connections between albums by the likes of Joanna Newsom and Led Zeppelin. (ARTINFO points out that the Muller’s work had sold within the fair’s first 24 hours for a cool $90,000 to some lucky owner.)
William Cordova also was showing two new record-based works on paper which recall the stacks in his “now’s the time” works at the Nasher. One at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. fills the paper with stacks; another at ARNDT features two tall stacks of records.
