CONTEXT ART MIAMI IS THE SISTER FAIR TO ART MIAMI DEDICATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT AND REINFORCEMENT OF EMERGING AND MID-CAREER ARTISTS.
Launched in 2012, CONTEXT Art Miami's open atmosphere creates a meaningful dialogue between artists, galleries and collectors while providing the ultimate platform for the presentation of mid-career, emergent and cutting-edge talent by emerging and established galleries. Ninety-five international galleries, vetted by the CONTEXT Art Miami Selection Committee, exhibit highlights from their gallery programs, solo artist exhibitions and curated projects. The combined efforts of CONTEXT Art Miami and Art Miami provide a unique and alternative opportunity for leading primary dealers and their artists to be marketed and promoted internationally during the most important week for contemporary art in America.
CONTEXT Art Miami, along with the 27th edition of Art Miami, commences on November 29, 2016, with the highly anticipated Opening Night VIP Preview. The 2015 preview attracted 14,500 collectors, curators, artists, connoisseurs and designers, and the fair hosted a total of 82,500 attendees over a six-day period. This immediately reinforced the CONTEXT Art Miami fair as a proven destination and serious marketplace for top collectors to acquire important works from the leading international galleries representing emerging and mid-career cutting-edge works of art.
Convenient parking is available for both fairs through the use of a four-story parking garage with 2,000 spots, located directly across the street. A network of complimentary shuttle buses will run round-trip service between Art Miami, CONTEXT Art Miami, Aqua Art Miami and Art Basel Miami Beach.
