PULSE  Miami gets our pick as the strongest of the satellite fairs during Basel week. Standouts in the fair’s IMPULSE section (a juried selection of  galleries invited to present solo exhibits of single artists) included  art collective/gallery OK Mountain, who took home this year’s Pulse Prize for their corner store installation, Brian Dettmer’s carved books, which ponder the nature of recorded information and history (Packer Schopf Gallery), and Cody Hudson’s display with Andrew Rafacz Gallery.  In the main halls, Catharine Clark Gallery was a standout with the haunting, towering paper ink washes of Josephine Taylor and Jonathan Solo’s gender bending collaged graphite drawings. Our number one photography pick goes to Angelo Musco (Carrie Secrist Gallery), whose digital manipulations of thousands of naked swimming bodies, interwoven like DNA help create a large scale, metaphysical biological architecture. Other worthy photo mentions are the documentary work of Deanna Templeton (Kopeikin Gallery and the computer generated works of  Sangbin Im (Dean Project).
