The 2012 benefit preview attracted 11,000 collectors, curators, artists, connoisseurs, and designers and the fair hosted a total of 60,000 attendees over a six-day period.
This immediately reinforced the CONTEXT 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.
The combined exhibition space of CONTEXT Art Miami and Art Miami 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 CONTEXT& Art Miami 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.
Linked by a courtyard installed with curated projects, CONTEXT Art Miami 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.
