Stacy Conde, of Conde Contemporary, the gallery on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables with a concentration on narrative realism, photorealistic portraiture and surrealism, has partnered with the Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach for the launch of Technique Art Fair during Miami Art Week 2016.

The focus of Technique Art Fair is primarily representational art, by a body of international artists, represented by a host of world class galleries and dealers.

Technique Art Fair will celebrate the tangible, the relatable, and the emotional qualities which artists convey in works that require more technique than abstraction.

“…contemporary art is in many ways so entranced by the conceptual that the actual work and technique involved in creating art, have become secondary, tertiary even, to the obfuscated artist’s statement. Happily, I sense a seismic shift is underway”, says Stacy Conde.

She isn’t alone in predicting a return to representational work.

‘After MoMA PS1 opened its ‘Greater New York’ quinquennial last fall with a noticeable crop of talented young figurative artists, the website Artspace exulted: ‘The figure is back, baby!’ Four days later, during the Frieze Art Fair, in London, The New York Times trumpeted: ‘The Triumphant Return of Figurative Art.’ And in December, during Art Basel Miami Beach, the über-dealers Jeffrey Deitch and Larry Gagosian joined forces to put on a splashy, market-friendly show of figurative painting and sculpture. Titled ‘Unrealism,’ it featured both old hands such as Marlene Dumas and rising stars like Mira Dancy, known for reinvigorating the female nude with electric colors and a feminist gaze.’ – by Fan Zhong, April 15, 2016 for W Magazine

Technique Art Fair will support approximately 20 booths reserved for art dealers and galleries, as well as space for independent artists, specifically sculptors.
