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.

Schedule of VIP Events:

Art Miami Kickoff VIP Cocktails + Dinner
November 12, 2015
As a kickoff to the collaboration with the Fair, Merrill Lynch will host a VIP Screening of the highly acclaimed and brilliant documentary entitled BERNICE, by first time filmmaker Kristina Sorge. This short format documentary tells the story of art world pioneer and instigator, Bernice Steinbaum. In this beautifully crafted documentary, Ms. Sorge highlights her subject’s lifelong efforts to support and empower female artists as well as artists of color throughout their careers. The personal obstacles and hardships faced by artists she so staunchly represented were amplified by the racial and gender inequality of the art world especially during the 1970s and 80s. Tickets for cocktails and the screening of the film at JW Marriott Marquis Miami, will go on sale mid October. An invitation only VIP dinner will follow the screening at db Bistro Moderne.

A film series debut from Wet Heat Project and the Division of Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs at MIA

Diverse artists with distinct practices will engage four MIA workers with distinct professions; the in-situ poses that result will be produced as original artworks. The artists will be challenged to evoke the sense of dedication and tireless commitment that keeps one of the world’s busiest transportation centers in motion every day of every week of every year.
The fast-track portrait project will be captured as a series of individual films to premiere simultaneously on December 1, 2015 in a special project space at the CONTEXT Art Miami Fair (along with the artworks created for the project) and at WAYPOINT’s large-scale video screen in Miami International Airport’s newest international terminal area, Concourse J, which facilitates millions of passenger journeys every year.

Wynwood Art Walk has become one of the most iconic events in Miami, and SWARM, the creator of its epicenter along NW 23rd Street and 5th Avenue, is now poised to serve as an advocate for the Miami music scene by showcasing local talent. “We’re committed to bringing live music to Wynwood Art Walk, and much like our passion for all things local, we intend to give Miami musicians a platform to promote their music,” said Tony Albelo, partner of SWARM.

Wynwood Art Walk will include a main stage where several bands will be scheduled to perform starting at 6:00 p.m. On Saturday, August 13, SWARM is hosting four local bands, including the sun-drenched, garage rock headliners SunGhosts and their debut album release party. The album was recorded at Cutting Cane Studios in South Florida and was produced by two-time Grammy-winning producer Joel Someillán. Although the album is set for worldwide release (iTunes, Amazon, etc.) on August 23, eager fans will get to pre-purchase it at Wynwood Art Walk, ten days before its official launch. This installment of Wynwood Art Walk will also feature live music sets by Alexander Di Leo, KIDS, and Magic City Hippies. For info on pre-ordering SunGhosts’ new album, follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sunghostsofficial.

As always, Wynwood Art Walk is free and open to the public every second Saturday of the month. It’s the best place to people watch. It’s where locals get meet local artisans eager to showcase and sell their craft. It’s the place to satisfy that craving for five-star food trucks, and now, it’s the place to get up close and personal with Miami musicians who deserve to be center stage.

UNTITLED’s curatorial team, Artistic Director, Omar Lopez-Chahoud, curators Christophe Boutin and Melanie Scarciglia, along with Programming Director Amanda Schmitt, have identified a selection of special projects and programming that will engage visitors in the exhibitors’ booths and at various locations throughout the fair, indoors and outside.

“Working closely with our exhibitors we selected a strong group of special works by artists that are cross-generational,” states Amanda Schmitt. “The special programming elements from our non-profit and artist-run participants are integrated into the fair’s layout, demonstrating UNTITLED’s commitment to creating an environment unlike other art fairs.”

Visitors will be greeted by three special projects selected from submissions by UNTITLED exhibitors. Near the entrance will be a large-scale sculptural installation by Ronald Bladen presented by Loretta Howard Gallery (New York). Bladen was an influential artist who inspired a younger generation of minimalists such as Donald Judd, Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt. His work Chevrons (1974) explores the power and significance of this fundamental geometric shape, ubiquitous for its use in insignia, in language as punctuation, as a mathematical sign, and in design. The work consists of nine monolithic black sculptures that are arranged evenly in three rows, activating and highlighting the space between and surrounding the sculpture.

Los Angeles-based artist Scoli Acosta’s Earth Quartet (2013) is comprised of a series of pentagonal canvases, edged with jingles fashioned from flattened bottle caps. The work was inspired by Chris Marker’s documentary film, The Sixth Side of the Pentagon, that captures the 1967 Vietnam protest at the Pentagon. Acosta’s incorporation of playful bottle cap jingles also nods to Abbie Hoffman’s sarcastic attempt to levitate the Pentagon, in hopes it would turn orange and vibrate. Earth Quartet is presented by Galerie Laurent Godin (Paris).

Elise Ferguson’s paintings do not involve paint; she uses materials that are associated with sculpting: plaster and wood. Coloring the plaster with pigment, and layering the surface to a sculptural level, Ferguson’s work is based on mathematical puzzles, design and geometric variation. Ferguson’s Tess Ramble (2015), presented by Romer Young Gallery (San Francisco), is a three panel site-specific work that will be positioned in direct dialogue with the two other special projects, completing a minimal geometric trinity.

New, By-Appointment-Only Art Fair Showcases Historical Masterpieces Alongside Contemporary Art and Design in a Specially Curated “Collector’s Residence” on Hibiscus Island

For its inaugural exhibition and sale, Miami Art Masters will take place December 1st through December 6th, 2015 at an exclusive, private residence on Hibiscus Island, located between South Beach and Downtown Miami. Designed by award-winning architects, Touzet Studio, the residence provides a spectacular backdrop to a curated selection of Old Master paintings and drawings, along with contemporary art and design objects. Lyrically weaving museum quality Old Master artworks in conjunction with the presence of contemporary works, Miami Art Masters will offer a unique viewing opportunity, for both the seasoned and emerging collector.

Running concurrent with Art Basel Miami Beach, which attracts thousands of visitors to South Beach annually, Miami Art Masters promises an experience unlike any other, not only through the diverse presentation of historically important works of art but also by participating in an active contemporary dialogue merging elements of the past along with those representing our current time. This invitation-only exhibition and sale will be held in an expansive 12,000 square foot private home unlike many familiar art fair venues. With the goal of bridging the disconnect between artistic periods and art constituencies, Miami Art Masters will create an atmosphere where old meets new and where the dissimilar styles not only beautifully coexist but also engage in a compelling dialogue, adding richness to one’s surroundings.

Spanning 500 years, ranging from the 14th Century to the 19th Century, fifty works of art by prominent historic artists such as Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Lo Scarsellino, Filippo Tarchiani, and Jean-Baptiste Oudry will be part of a highly anticipated showcase. Further complementing this selection of Old Master works, the team of specialists will integrate an assemblage of contemporary art and design, by internationally acclaimed galleries and designers such as Ralph Pucci, Herve Van der Straeten, and Paul Mathieu in conjunction with artists such as Tracey Emin, Cecily Brown, and Candida Höfer, among others. Set in a contemporary interpretation of a classic Parisian Hôtel Particulier, this art happening offers visitors and locals alike a taste of luxury.

Miami Art Masters, 2015 is delighted to create and present an exciting and wonderfully unique exhibition and sale, contributing to Miami’s vibrant artistic community. It will expand upon, rather than detract, from what is already being offered throughout the city. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Copyright and Street Art

Street art is a hot commodity in Miami, featured in our neighborhoods and in art auctions, fairs and events. It is also featured in advertisements, promotions and in other ways not always endorsed by the artists. Can street art be copyrighted? Artist’s rights have been in the news due to two well known law cases pitting street artists against corporate entities. The slippery nature of copyright law has
left many wondering where to draw the line. There are no easy answers. Join us for a moot court style forum to explore this important topic.

Featured speakers: Steve Eisenberg, Esq. & Jose Talavera, Esp. of Lipscomb Eisenberg & Baker PL; Jaime Gekas, Esq., Foley & Lardner LLP.

Along with curated art tours with street art specialist Sebastien Laboureau.

Art Africa Miami Arts Fair is a juried multidisciplinary exhibition of fine contemporary art from the global African Diaspora. The central idea of Art Africa Miami is to present an array of visual works that pay homage to the centrality of Africa and its descendants contribution to the modern art world.

“Art has always been a tool to claim space, build power and to question the injustices that have shaped our social experiences,” Neil Hall, Founder. In the world of art and culture, artists are responsible for offering the viewer a chance to challenge society by bringing new meaning to the way we perceive the world.

Culture is space where we can introduce ideas, attack emotions, change values and find inspiration. Art is where we can imagine what change looks and feels like. Come join us as we seek to do our part in transforming our world to be more just and beautiful in all we do. This year, we continue our transformation of the historic community of Overtown.

Our aim is to continue advancing artists from the African Diaspora, including artists from Africa, North America, South America, the Caribbean, and Europe. Art Africa Miami brings a vital and essential cultural service to the South Florida community, lending the Magic City a true international flair.

Aqua Art Miami is pleased to announce its roster of confirmed exhibitors for Art Week, when the popular contemporary art fair runs Dec. 3 through Dec. 7, 2014. Long known as one of the top emerging art fairs during Miami Art Week, Aqua Art Miami is critically recognized for presenting vibrant and noteworthy international art programs showcasing emerging and mid-career artists.

Set within a classic Art Deco hotel on South Beach with spacious exhibition rooms that open onto a breezy, charming courtyard, the unique fair has become a favorite gathering spot during the busy week to acquire work, exchange ideas and discover new pieces by well-known artists as well as names new to the international art market. Under its new ownership by Art Miami LLC, Aqua 2013’s VIP Preview opened with a line of collectors down Collins Avenue waiting to gain entrance – a first in the history of the fair – and closed on a high note with record breaking sales, outstanding press coverage, and overall attendance of more than 10,000 visitors, which doubled from previous years.

Aqua Art Miami’s 2014 edition will feature 46 international exhibitors and a dynamic range of high-quality art that maintains the fair’s signature unique atmosphere and energy, showcasing emerging and mid-career artists working in all media from painting, photography and works on paper to design, sculpture, installation, video and multimedia art. “Aqua’s affiliation with Art Miami has clearly expanded the fair’s ability to reach out to new galleries as well as collecting audiences,” said Director Jennifer Jacobs. “Aqua’s unique setting and increasingly refined environment transcends notions of the typical hotel fair, and we’re incredibly excited for this edition, celebrating Aqua’s 10th Anniversary and highlighting the fair’s continuing curatorial evolution. We’re welcoming back some of the established exhibitors that have defined the fair’s success over the years along with fresh galleries new to the Miami art scene, together presenting an exciting roster of solo exhibitions and projects spanning visual art, multimedia, and performance.”

For the first time in Aqua’s history, exhibitors were selected through an Advisory Committee, comprised of Mat Gleason of Coagula Curatorial, Los Angeles, Nancy Toomey of Toomey Tourrell Fine Art, San Francisco, and Henry Chung and Robert Walden of Robert Henry Contemporary, Brooklyn, NY. Approximately half of the galleries who have contributed to Aqua’s success over the years are returning for the 2014 edition, with a number of new participants traveling to the fair from the Americas, Asia and Europe, many exhibiting in Miami for the first time. Aqua will also debut a design exhibitor for the first time in its history, with Industry Gallery of Los Angeles/Washington DC transforming the hotel’s penthouse; and as in years past, the online network and magazine ArtSlant will unveil the winners of a yearlong contest to select several artists from an international open call juried by a panel of art world luminaries.

In honor of the fair’s 10th anniversary, Aqua will present innovative performance programs encouraging audience participation in the creative process. Highlights include: Coagula Curatorial presenting renowned performance artist Karen Finley, who will reprise her Artist Anonymous series of ‘meetings’ encouraging audiences to explore their relationship with art. This series originally premiered as part of the Museum of Art and Design’s 2014 MAD Biennial; Elizabeth Leach Gallery will present MK Guth’s Advice Station, part psychiatry office and part information booth. Here visitors can sit and talk about their experiences and offer their tips, pointers and opinions about the art fairs in Miami, to be included in a book that can be ordered and shipped after the fair.

Fridge Art Fair is pleased to announce its third Miami Edition, The Fridge Fudge Pop, hosted at Holiday Inn-Miami Beach, steps from this year’s NADA and Pulse Fairs, with easy access to Art Basel, Scope and Aqua.

Opening day events include the VIP and Press Preview on Thursday, December 3, 2015 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Immediately following that, from 7:00 to 10:00pm, the opening benefit gala, The Grand Fudge Pop, will feature a special performance by NYC’s drag star Sweetie, and will benefit the LGBT Visitor Center of Miami Beach. Advance general admission Benefit Gala tickets are $35 and are available here. At the door, general admission tickets will be $45, a limited number of “rush” student/senior tickets will be $20 (with ID at the door at 7:00pm). The event will also include a raffle, music and more. RSVP: vip@fridgeartfair.com (VIP) or lynn@greengalactic.com (press).

Fridge Art Fair’s philosophy is to make the art fair scene accessible to diverse exhibitors and visitors alike. “Our booth fees are low,” said Eric Ginsburg, the Artist and Founding Director known throughout the world for his Dog and Cat paintings. Admission is ten dollars but on the door policy is: “No one is ever turned away. Generous donations will help keep this a reality.”

Fridge Art Fair celebrates creative freedom and diversity, encouraging exhibitors to explore all possibilities within their spaces as, in the words of Fridge Curator Linda DiGusta, “exploration, energetic participation and enthusiastic support create transformative energy, rules kill spirit.” Exhibitors are drawn from the world art community and include dealers, collectives and unrepresented artists – many “regulars,” and some new to Fridge.

This year the Fair welcomes a major collaboration with Art Shape Mammoth, who will curate and present large-scale sculpture, performances – dance and movement artist Laura Gordon will work with the large-scale paintings of new Fridge artist Iliyan Ivanov as a backdrop and Anna Marie Shogren will dance a durational performance – and guest artists from Shanghai, China in addition to their core program.

Special presentations also include an exhibition by students of Virginia Erdie’s youth art program in Miami, a screening of Katherine Delaney’s documentary/love letter to the drag world, Charmed Life, and works of Kazuko Miyamoto and Eva LeWitt presented by Gallery 128, the Lower East Side fixture and magnet that hosted the inaugural Fridge Art Fair in May 2013.

Founder renowned artist Eric Ginsburg http://www.worldoferic.com will present his signature pet portraits and accept commissions to benefit BARC Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY – bring a photo of Fido or Fluffy and save a life! His work will be featured in the exhibition. Additionally, a satellite exhibition curated by the Fair will open in November, hosted by LGBT Visitor Center, 1130 Washington Avenue, Miami Beach. Details to be announced.

Fridge Art Fair, a play on “Freeze,” was born in 2013 on the Lower East Side, as a satellite of Frieze New York. The inaugural Fair was filled to capacity with exhibitors who answered Founder Eric Ginsburg’s challenge, “Can you fit into the Fridge?” at Kazuko Miyamoto’s small but storied storefront, Gallery OneTwentyEight. The Fair has gathered a growing following of exhibitors, sponsors, and visitors through two more New York editions, as well as two previous Miami fairs in 2013 and 2014. The 2015 edition will mark Fridge’s Miami Beach debut, where the fair’s unique character will complement the offerings of the nearby Pulse and NADA shows, as well as Scope, Aqua and Art Basel in South Beach.

An exclusive VIP Lounge doubles as a rendezvous for guests to connect with participating artists. Conceived as an alternative to the traditional art fair model, Mana Miami explores the making process of a contemporary art community that is at once relevant, progressive, and profound.

The title of the exhibition, Intersections (after Lautréamont) refers to the notion of beauty and how, during each era, art is responsible for reformulating, subverting, and/or proposing alternative ways of understanding beauty. There is no single criterion in the exhibition, opening spaces for tense intersections, armed with both correspondence and friction. Placing the questions raised by the works of this year’s winners through the prism of this new juncture in the city that hosts them, could produce moments of estrangement, disturbing crossroads, poetic collisions. That is already an initial point of convergence, among other possible intersections offered by this exhibition: on one hand, the changes produced in the Miami scene in relation to Latin America; on the other hand, the wide range of concerns that occupy the award-winning artists.

California based artist, Blair Martin Cahill exhibits sculptures and other works that present a completely unique art series, from December 2-6, 2015 at SPECTRUM Miami located in the Arts + Entertainment District. Cahill’s work explores the fragile and impermeable through the juxtaposition of dissimilar materials in her work, such as steel and silk, making it clear that strength should not be judged by perception alone. Her new work, which will be debuted at SPECTRUM Miami, is a concise collection of sculptural embroidery with a definite contemporary edge. With Sphere 30, Cahill employs embroidery with vivid sculptural effects — rich blue, greens and silvers permeate delicate silk suspended within a dissected sphere of stainless steel. Suspended over a highly polished base of metal, the sphere appears to glow from within. The center rings of Sphere 30 (48″ W X 80″ L X 45″ H) are some of the largest embroidered areas to ever have been produced. Being shown for the first time, See no Evil, highlights three Japanese ladies embroidered on almost translucent silk in a folding screen of maple and brushed aluminum. The ladies gaze from the screen intently, watching but not passing judgment as they speak, see and hear no evil. Cahill has exhibited extensively this year in the United States and abroad including Apricot Gallery London, UK; Amsterdam International Art Fair; and Governor’s Island Art Fair, New York City; Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Los Angeles California; Art San Diego, San Diego California.

Each December in Miami, NADA holds a renowned art fair to vigorously pursue our goals of exploring new or underexposed art that is not typical of the “art establishment.” NADA Miami Beach is recognized as a much needed alternative assembly of the world’s youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging contemporary art. It is the only major American art fair to be run by a non-profit organization. The fair is open for both members and non-members of NADA to apply.

For the 13th edition of the fair, NADA Miami Beach remains committed to a selected presentation of exhibitors with this new venture at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Centrally located, the transition to an epicenter of activity better serves both NADA’s exhibitors and its audience, and reflects the continued growth of NADA as an international platform for contemporary art.

Proceeds raised from NADA Miami Beach ticket sales will go towards establishing the NADA International Exhibitor Prize, a new initiative to support first-time exhibitors traveling internationally to the fair in 2016.

Celebrated multi-disciplinary artist and recent New York Foundation of the Arts fellowship awardee Kalup Linzy will also debut Season 2 of his satirical art industry soap opera, As the Art World Might Turn. The evening will culminate with Linzy performing as Kaye, a singer and video artist who soul searches and simultaneously creates work about love, relationships, and family.

PULSE will celebrate Miami on Saturday, December 5 with a day dedicated to the city’s cultural richness.

Programming partner, Target Too, will offer visitors a place where products come to play and come to life. Introduced in New York City in March 2015, Target Too takes items sold at Target and combines them in inventive, unexpected ways. PULSE attendees will have the opportunity to experience installations from the original unveiling, as well as several new pieces built specifically for Miami Art Week.

Kreemart presents Alexandre Arrechea at CIFO Miami Art Basel 2015. In collaboration, Kreemart and Arrechea are exploring a series of written word sentences translating into sounds that one might encounter in daily life provoking a sense of nostalgia.

Sounds that one may or may have not actually experienced are being brought as a challenge and in order to encounter this experience, we invite our audience to break free from contained boxes. This may be seen as a liberation of contained memories or dream like states that reside in the psyche. Once unleashed, can written word provoke the imagination enough for someone to actually experience sound through silence?

These sentences are phrases that are meant to arouse or keep our curiosity. The act of hitting with a hammer reveals another blow, another friction and echoing each sentence that runs in our memory as a sound.

The boxes containing each sound are made of sugar. Our audience may taste the fondant or just let it go it go on the floor. The exploration is abstraction of taste through sound. The taste here is not be the central experience but the abstraction of it.

Design Miami/ expands geographic and creative horizons for 2015 edition. Design Miami/ welcomes first-time galleries from São Paulo, Rome, London, New York, Brussels and Beijing. Annual pavilion commission awarded to student team from Harvard University Graduate School of Design Fair’s engagement with graphic arts continues with 2015 fair identity from French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan.

his December 2-6, the ongoing evolution of Design Miami/ will see a number of exciting ‘firsts’ for the fair alongside the maturation of its core relationships and initiatives.

The abiding strength of interest in design from Brazil is marked by the inaugural participation of Firma Casa from São Paulo. Design Miami’s dedication to supporting young and emerging design talent takes a new turn as the fair partners with Harvard University Graduate School of Design (Harvard GSD) on a unique pavilion commission. Following the attention garnered by the dedicated watch satellites at Design Miami/ Basel this summer, the December 2015 fair will for the first time host a horological exhibitor in the gallery program. The joie de vivre associated with the fair’s graphic identity in recent editions will be given fresh verve by the celebrated French illustrator Pierre Le-Tan. The Design Curio program for special projects that challenge and contextualize collectible design will return for its second Miami edition.

This December sees a number of new galleries joining Design Miami’s impressive roster of exhibitors. Firma Casa, São Paulo will show a new series of works by the Campana Brothers; Galerie Philippe Gravier, Paris, specialist in architecture, will show two monumental pavilions by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma; cutting edge and experimental contemporary design from Gallery ALL of Beijing, which exhibited in 2014 as a Design Curio; the rare watch dealership Le Collection’Heure, Brussels; collectible contemporary works from PHOS ART + DESIGN (formerly Sarah Myerscough), London; and Secondome, Rome, a dynamic project space that commissions hand-crafted editions from an international list of designers.

UNBUILT: Design Miami/ Harvard GSD Pavilion
Following a school-wide competition in which over 100 students from 32 student teams participated, a judging panel comprising both Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) faculty and representatives of Design Miami/ selected the winning concept. This commission represents the first time Design Miami/ collaborates with a school and the very first design competition organized by the fair.

The chosen project was developed by a team of five students enrolled in the Harvard GSD Master in Architecture program: Joanne Cheung, Jenny Shen, Steven Meyer, Doug Harsevoort, and Yiliu Shen-Burke. As the name would suggest, UNBUILT is a celebration of unrealized design projects that will be realized as 3D foam models, which will form the pavilion’s canopy. The unmade designs that compose the pavilion are being collected from across the Harvard GSD community, and information on each will be accessible via an app developed by the digital design firm Modelo.

Craig Robins, Founder of Design Miami/, states “It is a privilege to partner with Harvard GSD, one of the most amazing sources of creative thinking in the world of design. We are excited to see the students’ vision realized at Design Miami/ – a platform that has always been committed to presenting the work of emerging talent alongside material by established and historic designers.”

Placed at the entrance to Design Miami/, UNBUILT will offer secluded and sociable seating areas; zones of greater or lesser canopy cover to shield visitors from sun or rain; and integrated lighting to create an intriguing and atmospheric night time environment.

Pierre Le-Tan’s Miami/
Design Miami/ has commissioned Parisian illustrator Pierre Le-Tan to create a portfolio of sketches inspired by the fair’s home city. Le-Tan, known for his evocative New Yorker covers, and for delicately colored, crosshatched drawings for magazines including Vogue, Tatler and The World of Interiors, has produced a vision of Miami in his signature whimsical style. The illustrator’s interpretation is peopled with bathing beauties, flamingos and fearsome aquatic creatures set against a backdrop of Art Deco hotels and Key lime pies. The sketches will not only provide the graphic identity for this year’s fair, but will also form the inspiration for a capsule collection produced in collaboration with J.Crew. The collection will be available to purchase on site at the Design Miami/ fair and at select J.Crew stores in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris and Hong Kong.

Art Africa Miami Arts Fair Set To Weave Art and Culture Into The Fabric Of The #HistoricOvertown Cultural Movement

#HistoricOvertownSoulBasel Is The Cultural Epicenter of Cultural Influence For Arts, Culture and Music

Miami, Fl-November 18, 2014-The Urban Collective continues to invigorate the cultural landscape of the Historic Overtown community with the anticipation of this year’s 2014 Art Africa Miami Arts Fair(AAMAF), taking place December 3-7, 2014 at 801 NW 3rd Ave, Miami, Fl 33136. The AAMAF remains relevant in its 4th year, and continues to push boundaries, leading the way for innovation, creativity and inclusion of some of the top art artist influencers of the African and Caribbean Diaspora. The Art Africa Arts Fair  is funded by the Southeast Overtown/ Park West Community Redevelopment Agency This year’s fair falls under the marketing campaign and moniker of #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel and was orchestrated by The Urban Collective’s CEO, Neil Hall, as a collaborative partnership between the City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon, Southeast Overtown Parkwest Community Redevelopment Agency and the Black Archives of art cultural offerings throughout Overtown during Art Basel in December. #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel celebrates Overtown’s music, art and cultural vibe. The Urban Collective is a social conscious design, art and culture lifestyle brand created to inform, inspire and engage underserved communities in the power of the arts to transform their environment.

In 2011, visionary, architect and creator of AAMAF, Neil Hall launched the inaugural AAMAF that showcased engaging and thought provoking art that served a continuum of the Black, Caribbean, social, political, hip hop artistic strand that spoke to the Black presence missing from the Art Basel script. The AAMAF narrative has ignited a spark in the urban art community resulting in the creation of art fairs like Prizm, Kroma, Fusion Mia, Global Caribbean and Multitudes added to this cultural revolution. The wave of celebrations continues with the appointment of Babacar M’Bow as the Director of MOCA North Miami and also the Greater Miami Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s Cultural Department’s marketing campaign Art of Black Miami. This years location for AAMAF was make possible by a partnership with the Mt. Zion Developments, Incorporated.

“This year’s effort continues to sustain the dynamic discourse of the AAMAF narrative and artistic strands of Black and Caribbean culture revolution”, boldly stated by cultural influencer, Neil Hall.

“Art, music, dance, and culture once reflected the vibrancy of the Overtown community. The Art Africa Arts Fair assists Historic Overtown in highlighting such a rich history while ensuring it participates in the blossoming of a new era of excellence,” stated by District 5, City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon.
“All across the country, art has been a catalyst for the rebirth of communities that have been disinvested,” said Clarence Woods, SEOPW CRA Executive Director “ We see Art Africa as one of the sparks that will help to light the flames of economic prosperity here in Overtown.

AAMAF opens Wednesday, December 3, 2014 with a reception from 7pm-10pm,immediately following the opening night of #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel: A Celebration of Art, Music that will showcase the works of the late Overtown artist Purvis Young at the Lyric Theatre.

PRIZM is the producer of a cutting-edge art fair that is multidisciplinary in scope. Our goal is to expand the spectrum of international artists from the African Diaspora and emerging markets at one of the most prestigious art festivals in the world.

Our mission is to promote the work of artists of color, who reflect global trends in contemporary art, through a blockbuster exhibit held during Art Basel/Miami. Workshops and special events will be organized throughout the year to advance the careers of local and regional artists. We are committed to the Miami cultural community and will work to expand its visual arts landscape, nurture and educate its constituents and provide forums for cross cultural exchange.

In 2014, Prizm will exhibit a dynamic group or contemporary artists during Art Basel/Miami at the Miami Center for Architecture and Design. Salient works will be presented that highlight the diversity evident in contemporary visual art practices today, including painting sculpture and mixed media installations.

Additionally, PRIZM will feature the work of emerging Miami-based artists of African descent, such as T. Eliot, and Asser Saint Val. These artists redefine their world and bring into focus socio-political and cultural issues pertinent to the people of African descent in Miami and beyond. The select artists are actively engaged in perpetuating Miami’s growth as a cultural hub.

1:00 PM – 2:30pm Prizm Panel Talk with Prof. Kobena Mercer moderated by Prof. Patricia Saunders
Prof. Mercer will discuss his new book, Travel & See, in which he presents a diasporic model of criticism that pays close attention to the aesthetic strategies in contemporary Black diaspora art. He also traces the shifting political and cultural contexts in which black visual art circulates over the last 35 years.
2:45 PM – 3:15PM Film Screening Papa Machete A Third Horizon Film
More than two hundred years ago, the slaves of Haiti defeated Napoleon’s armies in the historic revolutions that took place between 1791-1804. One of their weapons was the very tool they used to work the land, the machete. Papa Machete explores the esoteric martial art that evolved during the slave revolts through the practice and life of a farmer named Alfred Avril. The short film documents his proud devotion to his heritage in the face of bitter poverty, and his efforts to keep this mysterious art alive.
3:30 Pm – 4:15 Pm Prizm Panel Talk With Contemporary Visual Artist Jefferson Pinder
4:30 Pm – 5:30 Pm Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation talks about their work in Brooklyn and how they’re using the arts to educate.

With Sonic Sounds From King Britt. Prizm Will Also Host A Basel Domino Tournament.
12 pm – 7 pm
A break from Miami Art Week, Prizm hosts a mid-day social. Join us with our co-hosts rush philanthropic arts foundation for cocktails, music, light bites and networking with friends in art. King Britt will provide the righteous beats for the day. At 5:30 PM, contemporary artist, Jefferson Pinder, will present his performance piece Dark Matter(s) reaching Lionz of Zion. Jefferson Pinder has created a morality play of sorts in which there is entanglement of music, athleticism and power. Slightly didactic, partly formal and consistently explosive, these break dancers will be lying their bodies On-The-Line to produce a dynamic performance that frighteningly brings rioting and B-Boy battles to contemporary art.
