Ready for Art Basel Miami Week? Art Miami and Context are. The art fair is moving to a new waterfront location and announced the concrete slab was completed as of yesterday, November 8, 2017. Stretching 250,000 square feet, the new permanent location can be found at One Herald Plaza in Downtown Miami. Occupying the former site of The Miami Herald, the art fairs can now be found between the Venetian Causeway and MacArthur Causeway and east of Biscayne Blvd.
Plans for the new location include six hospitality areas that can accommodate up to 600 people, according to the art fair. The areas will include cafes, an outdoor dining space, a cocktail lounge and VIP lounges.
Valet parking will be offered for the fair’s Opening Night. There are multiple parking garages located within one city block. The shuttle service returns and UBER service for VIP ticket holders will be offered.
"The completed foundation at our new location marks a milestone for Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami as we finally have an infrastructure and long-term location that is reflective of the quality art work on exhibit for acquisition and reinforces our position during Art Week Miami and on the international stage of important art fairs in the world," stated Nick Korniloff, Executive Vice President and Partner of Art Miami LLC.
"As we continue to grow, we are committed to providing the best experience possible for our international attendees, participating gallerists and community partners, and our new home enables us to do just that,” Korniloff stated in the announcement.
