Contemporary Art Fair Marketing: Art Miami VIP Preview



Art Miami 2009, the City’s original and longest-running contemporary art fair, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year December 2-6th. As the anchor of the Midtown Arts District and Miami Art Week, Art Miami’s longevity and success position it as one of the year’s most prestigious art world happenings. The Fair which opened Tuesday night, showcased a wide variety of art from 80 national and international contemporary art galleries and prominent institutions.



While Art Miami 2009 celebrates a milestone in longevity, it also continues to expand its reputation, attracting an ever-broader collector base and media attention world wide. It is the “can’t miss” event for all serious art collectors, art enthusiasts, curators and museum professionals – providing a closer look at some of the most important works at the forefront of the international contemporary art movement.



As part of the special programming for 2009, Art Miami presents “Mapping the Blank Spots” video art that focuses on “Local Realities” in countries such as Romania, Afghanistan, China, South Africa and Chile. Curators Julia Draganovic and Asher Remy-Toledo have invited artists, museums, art institutions and private collectors to contribute video work that defines “Local Realities” within the global art community.
