For Art Basel 2015, a renegade crew of 20 renowned multi-disciplinary artists took control of a huge, soon-to-be-demolished home in an affluent neighborhood in the heart of Miami's art scene. Knowing the whole thing would be bulldozed shortly after, each artist approached the space with the unfettered swagger that typifies a city known as much for raunch as it is for glamour. The result was a mind-blowing collaboration that Fusion TV called a "dreamy corner of MiamiArtWeek." Fancy Nasty's non-commercial creative purity represented a breath of fresh air for many who attended this year's fairs and exemplifies Build Crew's mission to feature extraordinary talent while sharing free, amazing, large-scale art with the public ... art for art's sake!
Artists: Stuart Sheldon, Randy Burman, Michael Loveland, Hoxxoh, KEMO/MSG, Brandon Opalka, Benji Cospolite, Andrea Nhuch, Lori Nozick, Gary Feinberg, Wyatt Gallery, Karen Starosta-Gilinski, Tamar Ettun … and featuring Strawberrita Dreams with Autumn Casey, Jessie Laino, Kelly Breez, Bootsie Castillo, Kyle Chapman, Makane, Annabell Penelope Lee, Renata Rojo, KC Toimil.
