MIAMI, FLA.- Celebrating its 28th edition, Art Miami kicked off Miami Art Week, where it held its reign as the leading international contemporary and modern art fair. Along with sister fair CONTEXT Art Miami, the two shows ran between December 5th to 10th and reported their strongest ever editions with multi-million dollar sales of blue-chip and contemporary artists and strongest attendance figures of prestigious art collectors, connoisseurs, advisors and notable museum professionals both at the VIP opening and throughout the week at the new waterfront location.

The two fairs welcomed more than 80,000 attendees, and more than 15,000 guests to the VIP Preview, which was sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate and benefitted the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), marking the sixth consecutive year that PAMM has been the fair’s exclusive VIP Preview benefactor. To date, Art Miami LLC has donated more than $150,000 to further the museum’s collection and mission, and the partnership remains an integral part of Art Miami’s larger commitment to Miami. To celebrate the fair’s new location, Art Miami LLC Executive Vice President and Director Nick Korniloff and his wife Pamela Cohen led a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the start of the VIP Preview alongside city dignitaries including Commissioner Ken Russell, City of Miami, Deputy Police Chief Ronald Papier, City of Miami, NFL Hall of Famer Joe Namath, Franklin Sirmans, Director of Pérez Art Museum Miami, and Patricia "Missy" Lawrence, President of Resorts World Bimini, to open the fair in its new location. Multiple dealers participating in Art Basel were in attendance during the Black Card First View.

Nick Korniloff comments, “This was our most successful fair to date, in terms of acquisitions. Collectors streamed through the doors to admire and acquire work from some of the most important artists in the 20th and 21st centuries including Warhol, Picasso, Basquiat, Kusama, Condo, Pistoletto and Hockney. Our new location added another dimension to our presentation. Being centrally located provided an increased level of convenience for our visitors.”

Robert Landau, Owner, Landau Contemporary at Galerie Dominion comments, “Art Miami was a triumph! The organization was outstanding and had the nicest people. Everything was totally professional. We welcomed some of the best customers and any that did not have the time to visit missed a truly great show. Business was great and everyone was excited and happy.”

The success of Art Miami was visible by the significant sales made by more than 140 international galleries representing 961 artists from 22 different countries and 60 cities.
