Distinguished fair closes with record attendance and strong sales



Art Miami, the city’s longest running contemporary art fair and anchor fair to the City of Miami, announced a new record attendance of 55,000 and significant sales of blue-chip artists at the close of the five-day fair.

Distinguished for its quality, depth and diversity, the 22nd edition of Art Miami presented an incredible showcase of extraordinary modern and contemporary art from 110 international art galleries. The fair was held in a state-of-the-art 125,000 square foot pavilion in Midtown Miami, located between Wynwood and Miami’s Design District.

Art Miami includes modern and contemporary paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and prints from Europe, Asia, Latin America, India, the Middle East and the United States and has grown to include more than 110 galleries from 18 countries, with a showcase of 1,000 artists from 60 countries around the world. From the United States, 400 artists are on display from nearly 100 cities.

“The year’s fair has exceeded all of our expectations, from the vast array of high-quality works and extraordinary galleries to a record number of important sales,” said Nick Korniloff, Director of Art Miami. “The high volume of transactions and record attendance at Art Miami are also strong indicators that the art market is thriving. We anticipate millions of dollars in sales will be finalized in the coming weeks as a result of the strong interest and serious collectors at Art Miami this year. We look forward to hearing continued updates from our exhibitors.”
