Art Miami International Contemporary & Modern Art Fair
AQUA Art Miami will celebrate its tenth consecutive installment this December and its first as one of the Art Miami LLC family of fairs. It is one of the best fairs for emerging art during Miami’s Art Week. Over the years, Aqua has been recognized for presenting vibrant and noteworthy international art programs with a particular interest in supporting young dealers and galleries with strong emerging and early-to-mid-career artists.
Set within a classic South Beach hotel with spacious exhibition rooms that open onto a breezy intimate courtyard, Aqua’s surroundings will certainly be a favorite gathering spot not only for fun and relaxation during the busy week but also as a place to exchange and disseminate new contemporary art ideas. And with its close proximity to Art Basel and continuous shuttle service to Art Miami and CONTEXT, Aqua Art Miami will transform into one of the top attended satellite art events for collectors, artists, curators, critics and art enthusiasts alike.
Aqua Art Miami will feature 45 dynamic young galleries from North and South America, Europe and Asia; and innovative special programming including performance art, new media and solo installations. With this commitment to artistic excellence along with building a dynamic young marketplace with new and increased opportunities around marketing and audience services, Aqua Art Miami is sure to surpass all expectations for 2014.
CONTEXT is the sister fair to Art Miami. CONTEXT is committed to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career artists. The fair’s open atmosphere creates a meaningful dialogue between artists, galleries and collectors while providing the ultimate platform for established and emerging galleries to present cutting-edge and emergent talent. Sixty-five (65) international galleries vetted by the CONTEXT Selection Committee will exhibit highlights from their gallery programs, solo artist exhibitions and/or curated projects. Now in its second year, the fair will take place in a standalone 45,000-square-foot pavilion directly adjacent to the Art Miami Pavilion joined by an outdoor café, lounge and curated outdoor art exhibition.
The combined exhibition space will increase the overall roster of galleries to 190 participants and cover 200,000 square feet. Ample and 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 from the Art Miami & CONTEXT Pavilions as well as valet parking. A network of complimentary shuttle buses will run round-trip service between Art Miami, CONTEXT, Aqua Art Miami and Art Basel Miami Beach.
