NEW YORK, NY.- It is with great enthusiasm that Art Miami LLC announces the appointment of Katelijne De Backer as Director for Art Miami New York, debuting on May 14, 2015 during Frieze Week in New York City. De Backer previously served as the Director for The Armory Show at Pier 94 for 12 years, the same location where Art Miami New York will take place this year. De Backer was instrumental in transforming the bohemian-style fair of 75 galleries to a world-renowned exhibition of more than 200 galleries.

De Backer's impressive experience includes her position as Director of Exhibitor Relations for SCOPE, who hired De Backer to raise the profile of the fair and bring her discerning eye and unparalleled professionalism to the organization. De Backer also served as Managing Director for top contemporary art gallery Lehmann Maupin, where she oversaw several teams with locations in New York's Chelsea and the Lower East Side, as well as in Hong Kong.

"Art Miami LLC is thrilled to have Katelijne as part of the team to welcome an exciting new fair into our family. Katelijne has worked with some of the worlds most respected fairs and brings tremendous experience and confidence to offer only the best support for the extraordinary galleries, collectors, curators and art professionals who attend our fairs," said Art Miami Executive Vice President & Partner Nick Korniloff.

"I am honored and excited to join the Art Miami New York team. I look forward to building on this rich tradition as we move ahead with a new edition in New York City. To be back at Pier 94, where I have worked for so many years on The Armory Show, it feels only natural and is a welcome déjà vu!" adds De Backer.

Art Miami New York will cater to both seasoned and new art collectors commencing with an elegant invitation-only VIP Preview on Thursday, May 14 from 2-5 p.m. The VIP Preview will provide collectors, art advisors, curators, and members of the press with the first look and opportunity to acquire the finest works available in the market before the fair opens to the public that evening through Sunday, May 17.

Produced by the Art Miami LLC team, Art Miami New York's refined ambiance will be welcoming and appealing to all levels of visitors, from the seasoned collector looking to acquire new works to the budding art enthusiast looking to create a collection. Prestigious galleries will exhibit within the intimate and modern setting of Pier 94, set against the dramatic backdrop of the Hudson River. Featuring a 133,000-square-foot exhibition hall at 55th Street and the West Side Highway, Pier 94 is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan within close proximity to the Chelsea art district, museums and major auction houses.
