Miami and Miami Beach Art Fair Guide
Online Guide to Miami Art Week 2014


Information about the art fairs and art events taking place in Miami and Miami Beach between December 1 - 7, 2014. The week is commonly known as Miami Art Week. Approximately twenty art fairs participate, positioned in the area between Miami's Wynwood Art District, Downtown Miami and Miami Beach.

For the second year running, Art-Collecting.com will be offering a Day-by-Day Event Guide for Miami Art Week, with a wealth of information to make the experience fun, productive, and otherwise sublime. A special new section for evening and party planning will be included in the 2014 edition. The Day-by-Day Event Guide will become the "online go-to" guide for Miami Art Week!

We'll continue to update this guide and web page through November 29th. Below, you'll find brief descriptions of the art fairs, including locations, hours, admission prices, and special events.

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 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.

An overview:
Art Basel Miami Beach - held at the Miami Beach Convention Center is the largest art fair of the week, featuring more than 250 top galleries from around the world. Design Miami (a major design fair) takes place right next to Art Basel.

Satellite art fairs:
Scope Miami, Pulse, Select, NADA, and Untitled are also in Miami Beach and actually on or near the beach; enjoy the ocean view!. Hotel-based art fairs in Miami Beach include Ink and Aqua.

Art Miami - held in Miami's Wynwood Art District, is the most established art fair in Miami; it's been around for years. Miami Project, Context, Spectrum, and Red Dot art fairs and many of Miami's top art galleries are located in Wynwood. One can easily spend two days in the area and still miss a lot!

Concept Fair is new for 2014 and it's located at Bayfront Park. Miami River Art Fair is at the Miami Convention Center - James L. Knight Center, located in the downtown Miami.

Free Shuttles - We highly recommend the free shuttle services offered by art fairs, especially when traveling between Miami and Miami Beach, and between downtown and Wynwood. Our Getting Around Town section in the Day-by-Day Event Guide will be the definitive companion for anyone navigating and schedule your weeks activities!

Art Basel Miami Beach
December 3 - 7, 2014
Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach
https://www.artbasel.com/

Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art show in the United States, a cultural and social highlight for the Americas. 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, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are on display at the main exhibition hall. You'll also find artworks in Collins Park and films in the evening 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 and make the final selection of show participants. The seven show sectors offer a diverse collection of artworks, including pieces by 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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. Organized in association with David Gryn, Director of London's Artprojx. In addition, Zurich film connoisseur This Brunner selects a feature length film for a special screening at the Colony Theatre.

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. For 2014, you'll find displays on: Ralston Crawford, Henry Darger, Poul Gernes, Tetsuya Ishida, Lydia Okumura, Lotty Rosenfeld, Michelle Stuart, Taller Torres-García and Alfredo Volpi are some,

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.

NADA Art Fair - Miami Beach
December 4 - 7, 2014
The Deauville Beach Resort, 6701 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33141
http://www.newartdealers.org

Founded in 2002, New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is a not-for-profit collective of professionals working with contemporary art. Our mission is to create an open flow of information, support, and collaboration within our field and to develop a stronger sense of community among our constituency. NADA's fair is held in parallel with Art Basel Miami Beach and is recognized as a much needed alternative assembly of the world's youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging Contemporary Art. It is the only major American art fair to be run by a non-profit organization.

Our international group of members includes both galleries and individuals (art professionals, independent curators, and established gallery directors). The various perspectives and ideas offered by our diverse roster creates a network which, at its most basic, is a resource which people could contribute to and take as much (or as little) as they are inclined. The benefits for some may be a matter of business, for others a source of intellectual or aesthetic stimulation.

To date, our initiatives have succeeded on two fronts: making the contemporary arts more accessible for the general public, and creating opportunities that nurture the growth of emerging artists, curators, and galleries. Our EVENTS have included: artist talks/gallery walks with critics and curators; benefits in support of charitable institutions; members-only seminars to stimulate dedication and ethics in our profession; and an annual art fair in Miami, which is held in December and is free and open to the public.

Don't plan on walking to this art fair, look for the free shuttle service near Art Basel Miami Beach.
The pick-up and drop-off is at 17th and Washington, near the southeast corner of the convention center. Shuttle service begins each day at 10:30am.

The fair's emphasis on presenting quality works in an intimate setting won over its 20,000 visitors last year, and the 2014 edition will again be boutique-scale, allowing for comfortable viewing in a relaxed atmosphere. Miami Project is housed in a deluxe, tent with soaring cathedral ceilings erected especially for the fair. It will feature roomy aisles and extravagant lounges for a pleasant visitor experience. Located at NE 29th Street and NE 1st Avenue in Miami.

Miami and Wynwood Events

Wynwood Walls
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.

How to Travel Around


picture of Miami Trolley


Miami Trolley
One of the few cities to have free trolley transportation, and it's a good way to get around Miami. In 2013 they had a route that included Art Basel Miami Beach, so most likely they'll have another for 2014. Try to use them when traveling from one area like Downtown to the Design District or along Biscayne Blvd. to Bayfront Park or the Perez Museum. 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) and you ask to be let out and walk the last block or two.
Map of Miami Trolley


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 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.

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.


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.

Aqua Art Miami
Free Shuttle Service during regular event hours, running approximately every 20 minutes to Art Basel (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 7:00 pm. Also, from 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM EPIC Hotel (Downtown near Miami River) to/from Art Miami Pavilion, shuttle departs every 30 minutes.

NADA ART FAIR - Miami Beach
Free shuttles running, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday beginning at 10:30am. Running between the NADA Art Fair (67th/Collins) and the Convention Center (17th and Washington).

Miami River Art Fair
There will be a shuttle that stops near the James L Knight Center and area hotels. Not sure of the shedule at this time. Last year the Art Miam shuttle stopped at the hotel across the street.. Also, the free Miami Trolley, 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, Select and Fridge Art Fairs
Most likely will have shuttles running, no schedule at this time.


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


Other Ground Transportation

Taxi Cabs - They're the way to go when you're short on time and not traveling far, plus they're easy to find. Taxi's can be a good way to travel around, but be careful, know where you're going and how you might drive if you were driving. Ask your hotel for best directions to your destination, then ask them to get you a cab driver that speaks 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.

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.
