Bridge Wynwood 2008 in Miami

Bridge Fair 2008 was, to borrow the perfect phrase from David Sedaris: "heavy on marvels, but curiously devoid of charm." Harvard grad Gregory de la Haba's taxidermy horse threesome is, on its own, a little much; but the photos in the background depict young children (to be fair, sculptures of young children) looking on in wonder at the stimulated stallion. YIKES. Other than that, the most notable aspect of Bridge Wynwood was the ominous presence of the New York Art Exchange, and the tremendous consumerism of the entire Art Basel affair.
