Miami Art Week
“Everyone in the art world descends on Miami for this important cultural event. This is the bellwether for the art fair market in America, and it only gets stronger,” said Nick Korniloff, director of Art Miami, which is the city’s original and longest running contemporary and modern art fair.
Art Miami, along with its sister fair, CONTEXT is set to debut it’s new waterfront location on Biscayne Bay for it’s 28th installment and will kick off Miami Art Week; starting on December 5th with a VIP preview before opening to the public on December 6th through the 10th. This year’s preview will benefit the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) for the sixth consecutive year. Art Miami has already donated more than $150,000 to further the museum’s collection and mission. The event will be sponsored by Christie’s Real Estate. As always, Art Miami will showcase an array of iconic and exemplary works, dynamic projects and special installations and this year will present work from more than 140 international galleries from over 22 countries.
Biscayne Bay: New Location
“Every year the quality of works shown at Art Miami and Art Miami CONTEXT are unparalleled and this year will be better than ever, “said Korniloff whose fairs attract over 75,000 people every year. The fairs have earned a reputation for bringing out serious collectors, art dealers, curators, advisors and representatives from the world’s top museums. “It is time for us to create a new opportunity for our organization, our clients and our community as we move both Art Miami and CONTEXT to one of the most prestigious waterfront locations in the city, One Herald Plaza, on Biscayne Bay,” said Korniloff. Last summer soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Lionel Messi and Neymar had their portraits displayed at Casa Clasico presented by Art Miami. Adrien Brody and Metallica’s Jason Newsted also have shown paintings at Korniloff’s fairs. Past exhibitors include ARCHEUS / POST-MODERN, Osborne Samuel and Vertes. artmiami.com
