Design Miami/ is the global forum that brings together the most influential dealers, collectors, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Inspired by the galvanizing effect of Art Basel Miami Beach, the founders of Design Miami/ set out to create a design fair unlike any other that came before. They envisioned a new commercial and cultural forum that would capture the thriving general interest in design and elevate appreciation for limited-edition, experimental and historically significant design work, presented within an energetic, visually striking environment. No other design fair had ever attempted such a feat. From its inception, Design Miami/ was intended to be more than just a marketplace for high-end design. Two unique shows are held each year: Design Miami/, every December in Miami, and Design Miami/ Basel every June in Basel, Switzerland.
Art New York provides a fresh alternative for acquiring important, never-before exhibited works from both primary and secondary markets. The fair welcomes both experienced and new art collectors who are looking to experience a carefully-curated, rich-in-content presentation of the best in the global contemporary art market.
Art New York and CONTEXT New York, adjacent to each other at Pier 94, begin with an elegant, invitation-only VIP Preview event on May 3 from 2:00 to 5:00PM. The special preview offers collectors, art advisors, curators, and media the opportunity to examine and acquire the finest works available in the market before the fairs open to the public that evening and continuing through Sunday, May 7. The combined exhibition space of Art New York and CONTEXT New York will cover more than 200,000 square feet, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Hudson River.
