If possible, plan on spending at least four days at Miami Art Week, as the week is flush with opportunities to mix, mingle; and, of course, feast one's eyes on an incredible array of great contemporary art! Not only are the art fairs vibrant and engaging in of themselves, but related events occur at local art museums, private collections, non-profit art organizations, galleries and artist studios.

Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art show in the United States. And, the largest with over 500,000 square feet of exhibition space. Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show historical work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well as newly created pieces by emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, and films of the highest quality are on display in the main exhibition hall. You'll also find artworks and sculpture in Collins Park and evening films at SoundScape Park.

Art Basel is comprised of multiple sectors, each of which has its own selection process and committee of experts, who review applicants to select the show participants. The nine show sectors offer a diverse collection of artworks, including established artists and newly emerging artists, curated projects, site-specific experiential work, and video.

Galleries: The largest sector with more than 200 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries - from North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. They display paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, film, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists. Galleries

Nova: Designed for galleries to present one, two or three artists showing new works that have been created within the last three years, the Nova sector often features never-before-seen pieces fresh from the artist's studio and strong juxtapositions. Nova

Positions: This sector allows curators, critics, and collectors to discover ambitious new talents from all over the globe by providing a platform for a single artist to present one major project. Positions

Edition: Leading publishers of editioned works, prints, and multiples exhibit the results of their collaboration with renowned artists. Edition

Kabinett: Participants are chosen from the Galleries sector to present curated exhibitions in a separately delineated space within their booths. The curatorial concepts for Kabinett are diverse, including thematic group exhibitions, art-historical showcases, and solo shows. Kabinett

Public: This sector offers its visitors a chance to see outdoor sculptures, interventions, and performances, sited within an open and public exhibition space at Collins Park (2100 Collins AVE) near the beach. The sector is produced in collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art and is free to the public.

Film: The Film sector presents a dynamic program of films by and about artists. Screenings take place inside the Convention Center, and in the outdoor setting of SoundScape Park where works are shown on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. David Gryn and Marian Masone were the the Film Curators last year.

Survey: Survey presents precise art historical projects that may include solo presentations by an individual artist, or juxtapositions and thematic exhibits from artists representing a range of cultures, generations, and artistic approaches. Survey

Magazines: Art publications from around the world display their magazines in single-magazine stands or the collective booth. Editors and publishers are often present at the show. Great for finding current and past issues of magazines. Magazines

Michael Heizer's most recent editions with Durham Press Post Historic Screeprint No. 1. Initially conceived during a 2000 session at Durham Press, Post Historic Screenprints No. 1 & No. 2 were completed after several trips to Heizer's studios in Nevada. The prints build upon the imagery and themes that have concerned Heizer throughout his career. Like many of his sculptures, these screenprints are inspired by ancient forms - stones, tools, and the architecture and planning of pre-Columbian sites - as well as Minimalist abstraction.

Anne Siems
David Lusk Gallery - Memphis and Nashville, TN

Artist Anne Siems is inspired by the landscapes of her childhood in Germany. Using her remembered landscape as background, Siems creates narrative paintings with a distinct time and place - but it is impossible to firmly discern when or where that place is. David Lusk Gallery was founded in 1995 in Memphis, and they also have a gallery in Nashville.

Klea McKenna
Von Lintel Gallery - Los Angeles

Klea McKenna uses light sensitive paper to reveal something unexpected about the natural world, transforming familiar elements into abstractions of light and form. She experiments with a number of strategies, including hand-made cameras and outdoor photograms to create images that convey a sense of place that is both visual and emotional. Focusing on a selective roster of artists who quietly push the boundaries of medium and materiality, the gallery exhibits art that will continue to engage the viewer over time.

Satellite Art Show 2017

SATELLITE ART SHOW
December 7 - 10, 2017
Ocean Terrace Hotel, 7410 Ocean Terrace, Miami Beach, FL 33141
http://satellite-show.com/

SATELLITE, is returning for their third year. It is an alternative art fair that presents new and exciting projects that span the gamut of art, music, performance, installation, new media and tech. SATELLITE 2017 will be held at the Ocean Terrace Hotel, an abandoned beachfront hotel that provides us with complete creative control. Our alternative venue coupled with our focus on experiential installations, makes SATELLITE the antithesis to the standard art fair.

40 rooms of an abandoned hotel repurposed in immersive, experiential, and often participatory exhibitions. SATELLITE, is an artist-run and concept-driven alternative art fair that positions itself at the confluence of art, performance, new media, and technology. "The return to our dystopian hotel is a natural move for us. South Beach was great last year, but we were restricted by the regulations of the space. This year we will provide a truly visionary experience for our guests, restriction free" said SATELLITE director Brian Whiteley of the fair's experiential emphasis.

SATELLITE Art Show aims not to compete with its sister satellite fairs but to differentiate itself as the most memorable art-viewing experience visitors will have all week. Expect the unexpected and stay for all the experiences, as no two moments will be the same. #satelliteartshow #notbasel.

PREVIEW OF ARTWORK AT ART MIAMI


Artwork by John Stephan available from Vallarino Fine Art

John Stephan (1906-1995)
Vallarino Fine Art - New York

Vallarino Fine Art exhibits post-war American abstract painters juxtaposed with an evolving group of young emerging artists that are presently being heralded as the new school of abstractionists. We see these contemporary artists as having strong ties to the peer-ran Stable Gallery beginning in the 1950's and continuing into the early 1960's. We continue to pursue acquisitions from the post-war period of Abstract American art with great passion. As times change, we continue to keep reinventing ourselves and our growth in both knowledge as well as our desire to learn is paramount in keeping us current. In that same vein, we are very pleased to introduce VFA Contemporary.


Artwork by Holton Rower available from Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans

Holton Rower
Arthur Roger Gallery - New Orleans

Arthur Roger opened his gallery in 1978. In 1988 the Arthur Roger Gallery moved to a new carefully planned 5,100 square foot space with three separate exhibition areas in the historic Warehouse District in downtown New Orleans. The space, designed by architect Wellington Reiter, one of the gallery's artists, was described by the Times-Picayune art critic as "establishing a world class standard of excellence for new art galleries in New Orleans." Holton Rower creates paintings with a simple yet incredibly beautiful process resulting in incredible color combinations that can be stunningly psychedelic and completely hypnotic.

PREVIEW OF ARTWORK AT CONTEXT


Artwork by Christopher Martin available from Christopher Martin Gallery in Dallas, Aspen and Santa Fe

Christopher Martin
Christopher Martin Gallery - Dallas, Aspen and Santa Fe

With locations in the Dallas Design District and in the heart of Aspen downtown, the galleries specialize in contemporary art, mainly abstraction and Organic Expressionism with a focus on the work of American artist Christopher H. Martin. The expanded gallery program includes artists working on sculpture and this year's focus is on the glass sculptures of Gregory Price and the stoneware work of Brandon Reese. Martin is influenced primarily from Nature. His colors, his movements, his subjects, even his methods, are inspired by events in nature captured behind a pane of glass. It is this juxtaposition between the clean, polished final work, and the highly gestural abstractions depicted, that give his art work such drama.


Artwork by Barbara Cole available from Bau-Xi Gallery in Vancouver and Toronto

Barbara Cole
Bau-Xi Gallery - Vancouver and Toronto

The Bau-Xi Gallery is recognized as one of Canada's most highly regarded and reputable art galleries. Exhibiting in three spaces in Toronto and Vancouver since 1965, the Bau-Xi group of galleries represents some of Canada's most established artists, in addition to an impressive roster of important international artists.

Artwork by Joan Nelson available from Adams and Ollman in Portland, OR

Joan Nelson
Adams and Ollman - Portland, OR

Nelson is well known for her paintings that incorporate multiple pictorial landscape traditions and pay homage to and borrow from artists such as Albrecht Altdorfer, Albert Bierstadt, George Caleb Bingham and Casper David Friedrich. Occupying a unique place in the long history of landscape painting, Nelson's works simultaneously speak to the experience of landscape and the complexity of representation, artfully incorporating reality, memory and mediated experience. Her work is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

PINTA MIAMI - CROSSING CULTURES returns to Miami Art Week with new programs and initiatives for its 11th edition. These new programs look to further PINTA's mission and encompass galleries from around the globe while maintaining a conceptual dialogue across all countries, cultures and genres. This year, the fair returns to Mana Wynwood, from December 6th through the 10th.

During its 2016's edition and thanks to its impressive programming, PINTA Miami reached record attendance of over 30,000 visitors. Its curatorial committee expanded its project to include galleries from around the globe, thereby destroying barriers and permeating through all corners of the globe. Our curated sections featured not only works by a range of legendary artists, but also recreations of historical performances. The fantastic selection of participating galleries built new relationships with international collectors and directors of art institutions, which in turn enabled significant sales.

New to this edition of the fair will be PINTA PLATFORMS. Curated by Roc Laseca, this innovative section will be devoted to providing additional visibility to modern and contemporary art contributions. Pinta Platforms will serve as a distinctive stage for galleries to showcase their represented artists in a unique way.

Another new feature of PINTA MIAMI 2017 will be the PINTA COUNTRY SECTIONS. These sections were created with intention of becoming a stage for works that are representative of their countries of origin. This year, the fair will feature Argentina and Peru. As the other sections of the fair, these segments will be curated. In the case of Argentina, the fair welcomes Florencia Battiti. Max Hernandez Calvo will be in charge of Peru. Each section will feature selected galleries and artists from each one of these countries and serve as a gauge of the country's artistic scene.

Returning for a second year to PINTA MIAMI - CROSSING CULTURES will be the Young Collectors Desk. The main objective of this initiative is to provide assistants already avid collectors and enthusiasts of art with the necessary tools to help maximize their experiences at the fair by educating and giving attendees the opportunity to explore the world of the arts with guided tours that focus on the basics of collecting art.

Returning this year, PINTA Auditorium will focus on current matters surrounding Latin American contemporary art with noted speakers. Conversations will be Thursday thru Saturday at 4pm in the LATAM VIP Lounge.

2017 SPECIAL ART ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS

If you know of EVENTS RELATED TO MIAMI ART WEEK, please let us know details so we can add them. info@art-collecting.com. No new information will be added to our guides after Saturday, December 2nd. We do our best to provide you with current and accurate information about the art fairs and Miami Art Week. Also, you might want to check directly with the event organizers, art fairs or galleries if you have specific questions about programs or events. Some interesting events are listed below, not in any particular order.


-----------------------


Miami Design District, Buckminster Fuller's Fly's Eye Dome

MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT
Located just a few blocks north of Wynwood. The MDD has been growing the past few years and is now considered a must see during Miami Art Week. The Institute of Contemporary Art Miami (ICA Miami) and the de la Cruz Collection are located in this district. You'll find several art galleries and lots of luxury brand fashion and design stores - many of them feature special art displays during Miami Art Week. Craig Robins is the driving force behind the growth of Miami Design District and his collection of contemporary art and design can be found here. Look for Buckminster Fuller's Fly's Eye Dome. Click here for a map of the Miami Design District.

JEFFREY DEITCH AND LARRY GAGOSIAN PRESENT: ABSTRACT/NOT ABSTRACT
Miami Design District, M Building, 191 NE 40th Street, Miami 33137
December 5th to December 9th from 11:00am to 8:00pm and Sunday, December 10th from Noon to 6:00pm. Abstract/Not Abstract is the third thematic exhibition to be presented in the Miami Design District during Art Basel Miami Beach by Larry Gagosian and Jeffrey Deitch. The exhibition will explore contemporary approaches to abstraction in painting. Abstract painting is one of the great innovations of modernism which continues to inspire and challenge artists. To make a fresh abstract painting today, following all the remarkable achievements of the School of Paris and New York School, is daunting and challenging. Yet through the use of varied technologies, techniques, and approaches, this generation of artists continues to make astonishing and complex work with fresh innovations of the abstract tradition. Abstract/Not Abstract will include work by the greatest artists working today who redefine abstraction for our time.


Artwork by Ibrahim Mahama in Miami Design District, special exhibition by White Cube

WHITE CUBE SPECIAL EXHIBITION
Miami Design District, 3802 NE 1st Avenue, #109, Miami 33137
December 5th - 10th. White Cube presents an off-site project by Ibrahim Mahama, one of the most exciting artists to emerge from Ghana in recent years. Known for his large-scale installations incorporating jute sacks previously used to transport cocoa beans and charcoal, which are stitched together and draped over architectural structures, the project will feature Non-Orientable Nkansa, a towering sculpture comprised of hundreds of 'shoemaker boxes'. These small wooden objects are made from structural materials found in the city and used to contain tools for polishing and repairing shoes, which were then obtained by the artist and his collaborators through a process of negotiation and exchange. Gathered together here in a single, monumental unit, the containers are crammed with other re-purposed items such as heels, hammers and needles, all of which are part of Mahama’s ongoing inquiry into the life of materials and their dynamic potential. Accompanying this major work are a series of jute sack paintings which serve as 'extracts' of the larger architectural interventions.

COS X STUDIO SWINE PRESENT "NEW SPRING"
A large scale exhibition taking place throughout Miami Art Week designed by London-based design duo Studio Swine (Super Wide Interdisciplinary New Explorers) formed by Japanese architect Azusa Murakami and British artist, Alexander Groves.

To celebrate the installation in their Miami Design District boutique (3915 NE 1ST Avenue, Miami) COS will screen a short film of the project within the Design District store.

2520 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33127. Conceived by the renowned community revitalizor and placemaker Tony Goldman in 2009. He was looking for something big to transform the warehouse district of Wynwood, and he arrived at a simple idea: "Wynwood's large stock of warehouse buildings, all with no windows, would be my giant canvases to bring to them the greatest street art ever seen in one place." Starting with the 25th-26th Street complex of six separate buildings, his goal was to create a center where people could gravitate to and explore, and to develop the area's pedestrian potential.

GETTING AROUND TOWN


picture of Miami Trolley


Free Miami Trolley
One of the few cities to have free trolley transportation, and it's a good way to get around Miami and Miami Beach. The downside, you usually don't see one when you need it. If you can be flexible with your schedule they work great. If the trolley gets stopped in traffic (usually around the fairs) ask to be let out and walk the last block or two. When using Publice transit in Miami, be sure to wave at your bus as it is approaching the bus stop.
Miami Trolley Information and Printable Maps.


Free Art Fair Shuttles
Free shuttle services from one art fair to another. Look for them around the fairs and ask about them when first entering art fairs. It's important to know where the pick-up and drop off locations are, and what the schedules are (traffic can really mess up the schedules). Best use of the art fair shuttles is between Art Basel Miami Beach and Art Miami. Also shuttles connect Art Basel to several other art fairs. The pick-up and drop-off for Art Basel Miami Beach is at 17th and Washington, near the southeast corner of the convention center, in front of the Jackie Gleason Theater. Some shuttles may ask you to show a fair ticket or VIP pass.

Think about grabbing any shuttle traveling the direction you're headed. For example; if you want to visit Scope, you might see a shuttle for Untitled or Aqua, just jump on and visit that fair, then continue on to your original destination.

Have a plan for traveling from your hotel to the first art fair each day. Then another plan for getting to the next fair during the day. If a shuttle is not in sight or arriving soon, think about sharing a Taxi others waiting, it's a great way to meet people. On some routes like between Downtown Miami and Art Basel you might want to consider the bus, it's easy and fairly fast. When visiting the art fairs on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, the bus is a good alternative, several buses travel on Collins Avenue.


Art Basel Miami Beach
Be sure to pick-up shuttle info at the information desk when entering ABMB. They have a shuttle bus service for visits to the museums and the major private art collections. The pickup location is usually directly across the street from Hall D of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Shuttles to other satellite art fair, are located at 17th and Washington, in front of the Jackie Gleason Theater. Tip: if you're trying to connect with a shuttle make sure you take the East exit (Beach side) out of the Convention Center. ABMB Shuttle Bus Online Schedule (not yet available).

Aqua Art Miami
Free Shuttle Service during regular event hours, running approximately every 20 minutes to Art Basel Miami Beach (Convention Center) and Art Miami (Wynwood District).

Art Miami
Wednesday - Saturday Noon - 7pm, Sunday 12:30 - 6pm
Miami Beach Convention Center (17th and Washington) to/from Art Miami. Last shuttle leaves Art Miami 6:00 pm daily. Service ends 7:00pm. Also, from 10:00am - 2:30pm EPIC Hotel (Downtown near Miami River) to/from Art Miami Pavilion, shuttle departs every 30 minutes.

Miami River Art Fair
Shuttle stops near the James L Knight Center and area hotels. Not sure of the schedule at this time. Last year the Art Miami shuttle stopped at the hotel across the street. Also, look for the free Miami Trolley it services the area. Station 4, Knight Center. Metro Mover, Free, Riverwalk Station and 88 SE 4th Street. Ask at the fair for exact directions to shuttles or other transportation.

Pulse Miami Beach
Most likely will have shuttles running, no schedule at this time.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


Other Ground Transportation

LYFT
The Lyft app matches you with friendly local drivers at the tap of a button. Just request and go. After the ride, simply pay through your phone. Lyft is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. You'll need to download the Lyft app to your phone.
This year, Lyft will debut ArtHop, a limited-time service where dedicated drivers will take cars full of people along scheduled routes between the largest art fairs, including Pulse, Spectrum, and Art Basel itself.

UBER
How it works? Using Uber's free app, you can request a pickup and a car driven by the closest available driver will show up in minutes. Your credit card is billed directly for your trip and there's no need to tip (but we recommend you do, they work long hours during Miami Art Week, so take care of them). You can even see the car coming towards you on your phone map! There will be several options presented to you during the week. Sometimes the lowest priced option is not available. One option, and I use it a lot is UBERPOOL. I also used the LUX option for short distances when time is an important factor.

1) Download the free Uber iPhone/Android/Windows app (or sign up at www.uber.com/)
2) Request a ride 5 - 15 minutes before you need one.

Questions? Check out https://www.uber.com/cities/miami or email supportmiami@uber.com.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Taxi Cabs - They can be convenient when leaving your hotel and going a short distance, plus they're easy to find. Taxi's can be a good way to get around, but be careful - know where you're going and how you would drive. Ask your hotel for best directions to your destination. Keep in mind that you might get a cab driver that does not speak your language. Frequently taking a side street is the fastest and shortest way from one fair to another. Also if traveling from Miami to Miami Beach look for others that might be interested in sharing a cab. It's also a good way to meet people.

Yellow Cabs (305) 444-4444
Super Yellow Cabs (305) 888-7777
Central Cabs (305) 532-5555
Miami-Dade Taxis (305) 551-1111
Sunshine Cabs (305) 445-3333

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Miami-Dade Transportation System is really good and we recommend using it when in Miami. Use taxi cabs when going short distances and use the free shuttles when traveling between Miami and Miami Beach.
