In its twenty-third year as the anchor art fair of Miami, Art Miami will continue to present contemporary and modern artworks from over 125 of the world’s most prominent art galleries. This year marks the debut of its inaugural sister fair, CONTEXT Art Miami, which will highlight works by emerging and mid-career cutting-edge artists from 65 galleries.
A highlight of the inaugural CONTEXT Art Miami will be the unveiling of “BANKSY OUT OF CONTEXT,” which consists of five wall reliefs equaling six-and-a-half tons in weight. This showing will also feature a selection of the artist’s most iconic editioned works, including a rare “Kate Moss AP” and a hand-decorated example of the artist’s first ever “Rude Copper” print.
Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami will kick off Miami Art Week with an exclusive VIP Preview on Tuesday, Dec. 4 benefiting the Miami Art Museum and continue through Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012, in the Wynwood Arts District.
