Aqua Art Miami, a boutique art exhibition and sister fair to the renowned Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami, has released its list of 45 international galleries for the fair’s 11th edition, taking place at the retro Aqua Hotel on South Beach from December 2 through December 6. Aqua Art Miami also announces the new director Katelijne De Backer, esteemed for her work with Art New York, Lehmann Maupin and The Armory Show, who carefully handpicked a dynamic range of galleries with strong emerging and mid-career artists.

“I am beyond thrilled to lead this year’s Aqua Art Miami as Director,” says De Backer. “Aqua is a little jewel of Miami Art Week—it provides exposure to the undiscovered works of young artists and galleries, which is a crucial aim of the fair and something that I personally love to support.”

With its intimate setting and refined presentation, Aqua Art Miami has cultivated a reputation as a fair to discover artists in the Aqua Hotel’s serene atmosphere. De Backer, a seasoned director, has been producing cutting-edge events since the beginning of her career. For over 10 years, she led The Armory Show to nearly triple in size and transformed it into one of the most important events on the international art marker’s calendar.

With all of her success, De Backer’s arrival to Aqua Art Miami will be sure to leave an indelible influence on this year’s fair. She has already made waves for the brand as the Director of the first-ever Art New York this past May, a position she will continue to lead into the following year. Under her direction, Aqua will host just over 100 artists with galleries from 28 cities and 10 countries.

Aqua Art Miami is billed to be one of the most highly anticipated contemporary art exhibitions in December. Opening night for VIP cardholders and select members of the press is Wednesday, December 2 from 3pm to 10pm. The fair will be open for public viewing starting Thursday, December 3rd from 12pm to 9pm and then through Saturday from 11am to 9pm, Sunday 11am – 6pm. There will be a daily complimentary shuttle service that will connect Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami with Aqua Art Miami. Single-day tickets to the Aqua fair exclusively are $15; and a multi-fair pass to Aqua Art Miami, CONTEXT Art Miami and Art Miami are $85, which can be purchased via Eventbrite, at the following link:
