Art Miami Kicks Off Art Week Miami With VIP Private Preview
on Tuesday December 5th and Runs Through Sunday, December 10th, 2017
(MIAMI, FL – October 10, 2017) – Art Miami, returning for its 28th edition, opening December 5th and continuing through December 10th, has announced its 2017 exhibitor list. Renowned as one of the nation’s leading international contemporary and modern art fairs, Art Miami will showcase an array of iconic and exemplary works, dynamic projects and special installations from more than 140 international galleries from over 22 countries representing over 60 cities.
This year’s fair will kick off on the evening of Tuesday December 5th, with a VIP Private Preview to benefit the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate. This is the sixth consecutive year that PAMM has been the fair’s exclusive VIP Preview benefactor and Art Miami LLC has already donated more than $150,000 to further the museum’s collection and mission.

This year, Art Miami, and its sister fair, CONTEXT Art Miami, will debut in a brand new prestigious waterfront location, on the former site of the Miami Herald. With the new location, nestled between the Venetian Causeway and MacArthur Causeway and just east of Biscayne Blvd, Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami will offer an unprecedented level of convenience and a renewed connectivity to the activities and collectors on Miami Beach with accessible parking, a complimentary shuttle service between fairs and a Uber service
for VIP ticket holders throughout the week.
Presenting the finest investment quality paintings, photography, prints, drawings, design, sculpture and video art, with works from the 20th and 21st centuries, the 2017 line-up features acclaimed international galleries showcasing important modern masters and blue chip contemporary artists as well as the most sought after living artists from around the world.
There will be thousands of works at this year’s show from more than 960 artists including David Hockney, Joseph Albers, Alexander Calder, Yayoi Kusama, Cy Twombly, Jean Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, Willem de Kooning, Roy Lichtenstein, John Chamberlain, Damien Hirst, Marc Chagall, Donald Judd, Ed Ruscha, Donald Sultan, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol, Edward Hopper, Keith Haring, Frank Stella, Richard Serra, Anish Kapoor, Robert Rauschenberg, Peter Blake, Jeff Koons, Joan Miró, Grayson Perry and Gavin Turk.
