The second launch of The Satellite Art Show blazes a path forward for experimental art during Miami Art Week 2016’s commercial-driven endeavors. In this second year, Satellite has kept an eye on avant-garde and ephemera with a schedule of robust programming complementing its three floors of art exhibition space. With performances curated by Performance is Alive and interactive features making a splash, including a literal splash with the milk + cereal installation F+++ OFF by Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw, Satellite continues to innovate. The Digital Museum of Digital Art (DiMoDa) section of the fair’s lobby also made a strong impression with a virtual reality lounge featuring stimulating digital encounters.
Of Satellite’s three full floors of art experiences at the Parisian hotel, five projects achieved astronomical artistic feats and are profiled in-depth below.
Hamiltonian Artists, Washington D.C.
Rives Wiley, Joshua Haycraft, Alejandro Pintado

Composed of everything from oil paint and hair weave to video installation, the piece investigates one’s relationship with one’s physical body through an experimental video explanation of laser eye surgery. Hyperreal and seductive, Wiley’s work is unsettling and elevator for the viewer, implicating them in this surreal surgical experience. Situated in the adjacent space, Joshua Haycraft’s 3-D abstract structures juxtaposed with Pintado’s pastiched interiors explore disconnected forms that reveal a deeper than expected interrelationship through closer observation.
