The Sagamore Hotel, which is known as the 'Art Hotel' will be a popular attraction during Art Basel week due to its new installation entitled 'Framing the Moving Image.'

The exhibit was curated by John Hanhardt, world-renowned film and media art curator, who is currently consulting as Senior Curator for Media Arts at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

"It has been an education, honor and a pleasure to have the opportunity to work directly with John Hanhardt on this inspiring installation," said Cricket Taplin who, with her husband, amassed the art collection that is on view regularly at the Sagamore.

The exhibition explores the way artists capture, compose and represent traditions and histories as well as the changing material landscapes -locally and globally - through the moving image.

The entire installation embraces the diverse styles and genres from the avent-gardes, beginning with the 1950s and 1960s, to contemporary reflections of present media landscape that will highlight the variety of practices shaping today's art world.

These are some of the exhibits that will be on display:

  • Interstices, an original dance performance created and filmed especially for the exhibit.
  • Paper Collection, a playful look at the fashion industry.
  • Star Spangled to Death, Ken Jacob's seminal eight-hour film that looks at American History and the state of the economy.
  • "The Water Series," a multi-channel meditation on movement and the texture of water.
  • "Between the Frames," a multi-part series that examines the art world from all aspects.
  • "Threadbare," a piece that shows a film projector wrapped in 16 mm film that creates a silhouette suggesting Mickey Mouse's head.

An innovative book by artists Melissa Dubbin and Aaron Davidson, which reflects on the moving image and how it is received, will also be available during Art Basel 2013.
