NINTH FAIR AT AQUA HOTEL TO HOST 46 INTERNATIONAL GALLERIES AND PROJECTS
Aqua Art Miami (www.aquaartmiami.com) is pleased to announce its roster of confirmed exhibitors and curated projects for Miami Art Week, when the popular contemporary art fair runs Dec. 4 through Dec. 8, 2013. Its inaugural edition as part of the Art Miami family will retain the fair’s dynamic programming and intimate atmosphere, while providing audiences and exhibitors with the expanded amenities and infrastructure that have become signatures of Art Miami and CONTEXT.
Aqua Art Miami’s ninth consecutive installment continues this tradition, maintaining the fair’s signature relaxed vibe and spirited energy while attracting increasingly distinguished galleries. The 2013 edition will feature 46 international exhibitors showing a wide range of high-quality emerging art by artists working in all media from painting, photography and works on paper to sculpture, installation, video and multimedia art.
Since 2005, Aqua has established itself among the top fairs for emerging art during Miami Art Week, recognized for presenting vibrant and noteworthy international art programs with a particular interest in supporting young and established galleries with strong emerging and early-to-mid-career artists. This curatorial commitment is complemented by the unique art fair setting of a classic Art Deco hotel on South Beach with spacious exhibition rooms that open onto a breezy, charming courtyard. These surroundings have become a favorite gathering spot during the busy week to acquire work, exchange ideas, and discover new artists. Its close proximity to Art Basel Miami Beach has also helped make Aqua Art Miami one of the venues most attended by collectors, artists, curators, critics and the art-loving public. Continuous shuttle service will connect Aqua Art Miami and the nearby Art Basel Miami Beach to Art Miami and CONTEXT in the Wynwood Arts District.
