    NEW YORK CITY – The inaugural edition of Art Miami New York, a modern and contemporary art fair produced by the ownership team of Art Miami, came to a close on Sunday, May 17th, after premiering to a great response from galleries, collectors, visitors, and critics alike.

Guggenheim Museum, International Center for Photography, Children’s Museum of the Arts, Perez Art Museum Miami, ArtTable, Chrysler Museum, Buenos Aires Museum of Contemporary Art, Mana Contemporary, and others.

  • Maripol Does Art Miami New York!

    5/16/15

    by Art Miami New York

    She's the personification of a limited edition book -- a very rare and influential limited edition book that is. You know, the kinda great good thing accessible to the right cool few which ends up somehow, someway impacting the whole wild world.

    So yes, it makes perfect sense that she'd not only be releasing a limited edition book, but that the right cool folks from Archeus / Post-Modern would be having her sign copies of the great good thing at the inaugural Art Miami New York.

    Her name is Maripol, the book in question is Maripol X (LLAP), and if you've been taken by any kinda cultural anything over the last 2-3 decades, it's likely because this chick did something to kick it in gear.

    Really. 

    Maripol will be signing copies of Maripol X on Saturday May 16th, 3-6pm, in Booth 18 of Art Miami New York. 

  • The Media is Mad About Art Miami New York

    5/14/15

    by Art Miami New York

    Perhaps it’s the galleries, which number a cool one hundred and count among the most robust in the world. Or the galleries' gallerists, who’ve proven to be at once daring, discerning, distinguished and of indisputable repute. Maybe it’s that the 1200 wonders to be beheld have been culled from all four corners of the earth. Or that the people doing the beholding define what it means to be global.

    Whatever the reason, the media is going mad about Frieze Week featuring the inaugural edition Art Miami New York.

    Among those singling out AMNY are Wall Street International and InCollect, who both provide in depth looks at the spectacle to come.

    And among those covering Frieze Week as a whole are Bloomberg, The Financial TimesHyperallergic, Jetsetera, Paper Magazine and the The New York Post, each in its own way vying to be your guide.

    Happy Frieze Week everyone! And Thank You for being a part of the inaugural edition of Art Miami New York!
