Miami International Art (MIA) Fair 2014 Welcomes Premier Galleries, Curators and Collectors Aboard SeaFair

The Miami International Art (MIA) will bring together emerging artists to downtown Miami January 17-20, 2014 with a preview on January 16th. On display will be over 28 international dealers showcasing Fair will bring together emerging artists to downtown Miami January 17-20, 2014. This IFAE (International Fine Art Expositions) event will be hosted on the $40 million megayacht venue, SeaFair, docked at the Bayfront Park South Dock at Chopin Plaza.

The SeaFair is the ultimate venue for distinguished international dealers to meet new collectors while enjoying Epicurean delights by celebrity chefs and the libations of the MIA Mixology Lounge. Attendees will experience the quintessential Miami lifestyle of luxuriousness, art, fine dining and culture while enjoying views of Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

The expansive growth in downtown Miami continues to make headlines and with MIA in the heart of that buzz it easily sets it apart as the fair to attend. With the new opening of the Pérez Art Museum (PAMM) and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science located in Museum Park, and only steps away from the internationally acclaimed Wynwood Art District, downtown Miami is becoming the hub for arts and culture. Thom Collins, director of the Pérez Art Museum, mentioned in a Miami Herald article that, “This is a city where the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, the New World Center, the new science museum and the PAMM are all going up within a period of about 10 years. That’s remarkable. That’s instant cultural infrastructure.’’

The contemporary fair will gather a carefully selected array of 28 international dealers presenting both established contemporary and emerging artists. Works will be composed of cutting-edge art of all media including photography, painting, mixed-media, sculpture, installation and video. The mission of the fair is to showcase galleries representing the most talented and visionary artists of the 21st century. Some of the highlights this year include Venezuelan sculptor Rafael Barrios, recognized as one of the most revolutionary Latin American sculptors. And Contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn, considered one of the leading figurative sculptors represented by Halcyon Gallery of London and Shanghai. From Paris, Art Vitam will exhibit the monumental sculptures of Robert Arnoux whose art is exhibited in the most beautiful parks and gardens of France such as the ones in Auvers-sur-Oise, Saint Jean de Beauregard, le Vert Bois in Marcq-en-Baroeul, Le Jardin du Point du Jour – nominated year garden of 2010 – and also les Jardins de Séricourt – nominated year garden of 2012.
