FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Satellite Art Show triumphantly returns to Miami Art Basel and once again radically re-envisions what an art fair should be. This year, Satellite will focus on performance work, time-based media, and installation – singularly cornering the market on these unique platforms will give these cherished art forms a home during Miami Art Week. Expect over 30 live performance artists presenting fiercely challenging new works, installations, tech-forward projects, and even an interactive “Official Billy Joel Piano Man Karaoke bar”! Plus after hours musical and performative activations with nods to the art handler community and the NFT world. 

Curatorial Statement: “In the wake of the pandemic, this program represents the re-emergence and reclamation of the body. The selected artists recognize the revolutionary power of the body through actions that often serve as a release from the trauma inflicted through centuries of heteronormative and colonial conditioning. In addition, this year’s program seeks work that actively rejects the systems perpetuating injustice and serves as a safe space for historically marginalized communities. This is the liberation of the body.” –Quinn Dukes

Satellite Art Show will be conveniently located JUST THREE BLOCKS from Art Basel at the corner of Meridian and Lincoln Road! Leading the curatorial team will be artist Quinn Dukes of Performance is Alive and returning once again as founder and creative leader is artist Brian Andrew Whiteley.
