Along with the 26th edition of its sister fair Art Miami, CONTEXT Art Miami fair will take over 250.000- square-feet Miami’s Wynwood Arts District by the storm! To make this year’s Miami Art Week even more exciting, the event has developed an impressive line-up of international exhibitors and carefully planned accompanying program, consisting of a series of solo artist projects, curated spaces and special projects. After the enormous success of the 2014 edition, which attracted more than 14,000 collectors, curators, artists, designers and connoisseurs during the preview and over 82,000 visitors over the course of six days, CONTEXT Art Miami fair 2015 continues to be a primary destination for serious collectors, offering important works of arts. To do so, there will be more than ninety international exhibitors, which will provide a promotional platform and cultivate a meaningful relationship between galleries, artists, curators and collectors.

CONTEXT Art Miami Floor Plan

Special Fair Projects

To highlight this year’s special projects there will be four curated shows, involving a number of galleries and artists from different places around the world. The first is ART FROM BERLIN – The Galleries Association of Berlin (LVBG), which will offer an insight into the city’s versatile scene through an exhibition installed in the BERLIN LOUNGE. Taking part are five local spaces, each bringing three names. Another show is SOUND POSITIONS, curated by professor Christoph Cox, dedicated to the work by an international selection of 12 emerging and established sound creators. WAYPOINT will present a film series debut from Wet Heat Project and the Division of Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs at the Miami International Airport. Entitled We Make Passage, the film documents the encounters between Miami-based art makers and people working at the MIA. It will be screened on December 1st at CONTEXT’s special project space, along with the artworks created for the project, as well as at WAYPOINT’s large-scale video screen at the airport. Last but not least, there’s the Galleries Association of Korea, with its ten spaces and thirty creatives.

When it comes to special solo exhibition, be sure to visit the following booths and their respective artists: Dubner Moderne with Viviane Rombaldi Seppey; Knight Webb Gallery with Juliane Hundertmark; Mugello Contemporary with Mr. Herget; Paralelo Gallery with Isabelle Borges; Salamatina Gallery with Marc Andre Robinson; Sandra Lee Gallery with Jung San; Tezukayama Gallery with Satoru Tamura.

As part of an extensive program featuring leading art experts and engaging the audience in talks, discussions, educational programs and panels, CONTEXT Art Miami has partnered with ONE ART NATION. These will take place daily at the fair’s cafe. Some of the highlights of the program include a panel dedicated to home design focusing on the display of collectible art, the trends among the next generation of collectors, the way an artwork’s condition can affect its value, a discussion dedicated to Street art, from vandalism to gentrification, and a talk dedicated to Miami art scene.
