MADE IN MIAMI: ART MIAMI CLOSES ITS 32ND EDITION
Art Miami and its sister fair CONTEXT Art Miami wrapped up its 32nd edition. More than 155 leading galleries from across the globe exhibited investment-quality artwork of the 20th and 21st centuries. Many people think that Miami became an art collector’s paradise 20 years ago with the arrival of Art Basel Miami Beach. However, Art Miami is, in fact, the original and longest-running contemporary art fair in the city, founded in Miami.
Thus, despite what many think, Miami has, for more than three decades, been the North American hub for art collectors. Art Miami supports South Florida-based art galleries, artists, and museums not only during Miami Art Week but throughout the year.These deep-rooted "Made in Miami" galleries were spotted at the fair.
