CONTEXT Art Miami Fair Announces Exhibitors & Special Projects for Fifth Edition

The fair runs from Tuesday, November 29 to Sunday, December 4, 2016

Miami, FL – CONTEXT Art Miami presented by Art Miami LLC is proud to announce this year's confirmed list of 100 international contemporary galleries from more than twenty different countries and fifty cities.


CONTEXT Art Miami and Art Miami kick off on November 29 with a special VIP Preview benefitting Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), sponsored by Christie's International Real Estate. The preview is set to be the premier event of Art Week, giving prominent collectors an inside look and a chance to acquire contemporary works of art before both fairs open to the public on November 30, continuing through December 4.


Now celebrating its fifth edition, CONTEXT Art Miami also has been relocated to a standalone 65,000 square-foot pavilion just one block from its sister fair, Art Miami, on 34th Street (between NE 1st Avenue and Buena Vista Blvd.). The new location will allow fairgoers to travel with ease between the two fairs under Art Miami LLC, creating a perfect art crawl for established collectors, curators, art institutions and art advisors.


As an exciting addition this year, new exhibitors to CONTEXT Art Miami include London's Paul Stolper Gallery, which will offer an installation of new works from English musical genius and visual artist, Brian Eno. Eno will show new light boxes, which seamlessly phase through combinations of seductive self-generated ‘colourscapes.’ Zurich’s Galerie Andres Thalmann will make its first appearance at the fair, presenting a solo booth of works by Katja Loher. Gibbons & Nicholas from Dublin also will make their debut in Miami with a selection of emerging, mid-career and established Irish artists.
