MIAMI, FL.- PULSE Contemporary Art Fair presents PULSE Miami 2012, a leading art fair dedicated to international contemporary art, from December 6-9, 2012, at The Ice Palace Studios in Miami. Currently in its eighth edition, PULSE Miami opens on Tuesday, December 4, 2012, with a special preview evening and silent auction, hosted by artnet Auctions, benefiting the Lotus House Womenʼs Shelter in Miami. This yearʼs fair will be home to eighty-six national and international galleries, presenting exhibitions that span across all media, from works on paper, paintings, and sculptures, to performances, installations, and video art.

“As one of the longstanding art fairs in Miami and New York to host local and international exhibitors, PULSE is oftentimes a barometer of the global art market. This year, PULSE Miami will feature a greater number of international galleries than that of other satellite fairs. Weʼve noticed a particularly growing presence of European galleries that are relying on a strong US market to sustain sales,” comments Cornell DeWitt, Director. “Headquartered in New York City, we also hope to provide a resurgence for our vital New York galleries suffering from the aftermath of recent Hurricane Sandy.”

New international exhibitors joining PULSE Miami this season include The Fine Art Society Contemporary (London), presenting works by Chris Levine, celebrated for his iconic TIME cover portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II, and Rob and Nick Carter; Nuova Galleria Morone (Milan), showing legendary Italian conceptual artist Maria Lai; Galerie Alex Daniels -Reflex Amsterdam (Amsterdam) featuring a diverse roster of international talents; VIGO GALLERY (London) displaying collaborative geometric paintings by Biggs and Collings; espaivisor – Visor Gallery (Valencia) featuring Columbian artists Miguel Angel Rojas and Alberto Baraya Gay, as well as British artist Hamish Fulton; Galerie Wittenbrink (Munich) offering pieces by Florian Thomas; and ALARCON CRIADO (Sevilla) featuring Nicolas Grospierre; amongst others.

Additional highlights include Danziger Gallery (New York), showing photographs by “The Sartorialist” Scott Schuman, and works by Robert Frank, and Edward Weston; Yossi Milo Gallery (New York), displaying Chris McCawʼs unique sunburn images, Charles Fregerʼs Wilder Mann series, as well as works by Matthew Brandt, Pieter Hugo and Alison Rossiter; Jose Bienvenu Gallery (New York) offering pieces by Julianne Swartz and Ken Solomon; Shoshana Wayne Gallery (Santa Monica), featuring Smithsonian American Art Museumʼs 2012 Contemporary Artist Award winner, Kathy Butterly; NIEVES FERNANDEZ (Madrid) presenting Japanese installation artist Chiharu Shiota; VON LINTEL GALLERY (New York) bringing a group showing of works by Marco Breuer, Catherine Howe, Canan Tolon, and others; GALERIE STEFAN ROEPKE (Cologne/Madrid) displaying works from Bulgarian native, Iva Gueorguieva; Rosamund Felsen Gallery (Santa Monica) featuring a solo painting installation by Kim MacConnel; James Harris Gallery (Seattle) showing abstract paintings by Karin Davie; Jonathan Ferrara Gallery (New Orleans), offering vibrant etchings by Tony Fitzpatrick; LMAKprojects (New York) introducing quilted works by Sabrina Gschwandtner; and Jonathan LeVine Gallery (New York), launching a solo project by acclaimed French street artist Invader.
