This week's Widewalls exhibition feature has a special focus on Miami. The obvious reason: Art Basel Miami. The art highlight this winter draws galleries, artists, collectors, curators and journalists to Miami Beach. The selection we provide you with features the highlights of the exhibitions and fairs in Miami at the moment as well as the annual winter group show at Stolenspace Gallery in London.
Opening: Dec 3
CONTEXT Art Miami Pavilion,
3201 NE 1st Avenue, Miami, FL, USA
CONTEXT is the sister fair to Art Miami dedicated to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career artists, launched in 2012. CONTEXT is host to galleries like Fabien Castanier Gallery, Cube Gallery, Galerie Berlin, White Room and a variety of other urban and contemporary art galleries. The artist list is equally impressive. It reads the best of the up and coming urban art scene. The list includes: Speedy Graphito, Rero, JonOne and Mark Jenkins. For us the CONTEXT is definitely one of the most interesting events during this year’s Art Basel Miami.
