Art Miami’s Sister Fair to Feature 69 International Galleries Presenting Cutting-Edge Works by Emerging and Mid-Career Talents

MIAMI, Fla. (Oct. 3, 2013) – Art Miami LLC is pleased to announce its roster of exhibitors for CONTEXT, taking place at a 45,000-square-foot pavilion in the renowned Wynwood Arts District from Dec. 3 through Dec. 8, 2013. CONTEXT’s successful 2012 debut established it as the ultimate platform for international galleries to present cutting-edge works by emerging and mid-career talents. The fair provides insight into the latest trends in contemporary art by contextualizing them with some of the finest examples of groundbreaking 20th century movements at its neighboring sister fair Art Miami.

Immediately recognized as an unparalleled opportunity for galleries on the rise to gain exposure to influential collectors and curators, CONTEXT attracted even more distinguished applicants from around the world for its second outing. A committee of discerning contemporary art dealers have selected 69 exhibitors from 15 countries: Brazil, Canada, the Czech Republic, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States. This eclectic mix from 35 cities will converge to once again make CONTEXT the premier destination for procuring contemporary art and encountering important players in the global art market. Linked by a courtyard installed with curated projects, CONTEXT and Art Miami create a diverse art community with nearly 200 roomy booths on 250,000 square feet of Midtown Miami at the center of the city’s cultural expansion. Last year this accessible pairing broke records by attracting more than 60,000 visitors and generating sales of more than $50 million.

"The overwhelmingly positive response to the premiere of CONTEXT last year affirmed the art world’s appetite for a fresh approach to presenting cutting-edge artwork," said Nick Korniloff, Director and Partner of Art Miami LLC. "We saw many new faces enjoying its unique flavor while our loyal patrons appreciated seeing even more of the high-quality artwork they have come to expect from our fairs. We look forward to connecting them with the prestigious and adventurous galleries whose addition in 2013 will take CONTEXT to the next level."


To stimulate meaningful dialogue among artists, galleries and collectors, CONTEXT will offer special programming that enlightens fairgoers about innovative techniques and market developments. Highlights include the sixth edition of Art Miami’s popular Art Video | New Media Lounge, curated by LaRete Art Projects, which will feature an institution specializing in digital and moving images inside the CONTEXT pavilion and extend out to the courtyard with the new exhibition ZOOM IN. In a series of video boxes opening onto the walkway between the CONTEXT and Art Miami pavilions, five galleries will screen moving images chosen by Julia Draganovic, Elena Forin and Claudia Löffelholzof LaRete. An independent jury of video art experts will view the pieces onsite and honor one artist with the inaugural ZOOM IN Award on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Additionally, CONTEXT will once again explore Berlin’s influential art scene with ART FROM BERLIN, a showcase of six of the city’s best contemporary galleries selected by a panel of accomplished curators and art critics. The Galleries Association of Berlin (lvbg) – which presents ART FROM BERLIN with official support from the municipality of Berlin and the European Union (EU) – will entertain and inform guests at the BERLIN LOUNGE. This microcosm of the global art capital’s dynamic gallery community will include a cross-section of established and emerging exhibitors: Galerie Berlin, Galerie Kornfeld, Galerie Kuhn + Partner, Schmalfuss Berlin contemporary fine arts, Swedish Photography and Tammen & Partner.

CONTEXT and Art Miami will kick off Art Week with a VIP Preview on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Attended by 11,000 art connoisseurs last year, the opening celebration will benefit the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), concurrently debuting its grand new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building on the downtown waterfront. This exclusive evening will serve as the first opportunity for collectors to acquire the most coveted works of art available from the 20th and 21st centuries before the fairs open to the general public.

London-based Christie’s International Real Estate has once again been named the Official Luxury Real Estate Partner for CONTEXT and Art Miami. The JW Marriott Marquis Miami and Hotel Beaux Arts Miami have also partnered with CONTEXT and Art Miami to offer special rates for the fairs’ VIP attendees during Art Week. Curators, collectors, artists, connoisseurs and members of the press will have unlimited access to the daily shuttle buses that will connect Art Miami and CONTEXT with Aqua Art Miami, Art Basel Miami Beach and the JW Marriott Marquis Miami.
