This weekend, ArteAmericas, the premier platform for the art of the region, is poised to distill the growing enthusiasm for Latin American and Caribbean art to a defining essence.
“For ten years, we have been the only fair of Latin American art in Miami, which has been a challenge and an opportunity,” says Emilio Calleja, the fair’s vice president, adding that this year’s edition promises to be the most provocative yet. The boutique fair, housing 50 galleries from Latin America, the U.S., and Spain, will feature the works of 300 international artists and include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, and multimedia works by top contemporary names and renowned masters. ArteAmericas runs Saturday through Monday at the Miami Beach Convention Center (1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach). Tickets cost $12. Call 305-857-0027, or visit arteamericas.com.
