"Aqua embraces emerging talent, acting as an incubator for Context and Art Miami, and introducing collectors and curators to fresh faces whose exciting work complements the pieces by more established artists that they are already displaying," says Nick Korniloff, Director of Art Miami LLC. "We can now provide our loyal international collector base with opportunities to acquire works of art at the highest level from all categories of the contemporary market."
Aqua also gives Art Miami a foothold on the beach, conveniently serving art collectors, professionals and enthusiasts on both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway, connected by shuttle buses and multiple-day passes for entrance to all three fairs.
Across the water, the intimate rooms overlooking the Art Deco courtyard of the Aqua Hotel will be transformed by 47 exhibitors, including galleries, artist projects, an educational institution, and winners of the ArtSlant Prize. A widely respected online magazine and network for contemporary art, ArtSlant is holding a yearlong contest to choose several artists from an open call narrowed down by an international panel of art world luminaries. A media lounge will greet visitors to Aqua, and curatorial interventions will confront them at unexpected turns.
The opening of Aqua Art Miami has become the traditional Wednesday destination of influential collectors and art professionals who migrate en masse from Art Basel Miami Beach’s Vernissage at the Convention Center a short walk away. The lively atmosphere encourages many to linger late in the hotel’s inviting open spaces – and this Dec. 4 will be even more festive with entertaining surprises in store.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
