Nicola Costantino at Baró Galeria (booth P5 at Positions Section)Many still consider contemporary art as a challenge of who knows best how to reiterate as many art movements and subjects as possible. While you might have your own thoughts on the matter of prevalent eclecticism, you will have to acknowledge that some artists go to great lengths of devoting their work to the old masters. Nicola Costantino is one of these artists who has recently attracted some attention.

The Argentinian photographer carefully re-stages famous paintings, down to the smallest detail, often if not always posing as the portrait subject herself. Baroque artists Diego Velázquez and Caravaggio, in addition to Francis Bacon, Man Ray, Edgar Degas and Gerhard Richter, are just a few of the artists Costantino has appropriated. For her appearance at Art Basel Miami Beach, Brazilian Baró Galeria presents a photography of Costantino reenacting a would-be-painting by Vermeer that possibly only art historians could expose as a motive not known by the Dutch master.

Swing by their booth because this is certainly the closest you can get to an old master at this mega fair for contemporary art.
