Miami Project is just a few days away from welcoming visitors to Miami's Midtown Art District. Edition 3 will launch Tuesday night with our VIP Preview sponsored by 1stdibsoffering the public a first glimpse at the best in modern and contemporary art presented by seventy of the country's top galleries.
GIFTING Miami Project is thrilled to be partnering with Catharine Clark Gallery and San Francisco based collectors and philanthropists Andy and Deborah Rappaport to present Andy Diaz Hope & Jon Bernon’s Beautification Machine. In an unprecedented act of artistic patronage, the Rappaports are supporting the presentation of this powerful and compelling installation with the direct intention of gifting the piece to the collection of a museum or public institution committed to the exhibition of socially engaged artwork. With the hope of inspiring other collectors to follow suit, Andy and Deborah Rappaport are using Miami Project as a platform for change as they evolve the traditional art fair acquisition.
INSTALLATIONS & EVENTS Miami Project Edition 3 will feature several other exciting installations including Mel Chin’s Cabinet of Craving presented by Jonathan Ferrara Gallery and Fernando Pareja and Leidy Chavez’s Opresores Oprimidos presented by THE MISSION.Deborah Butterfield is creating new sculpture, including two fullscale horses welded from found metal, to be presented in a solo exhibition of six works with Greg Kucera Gallery. Programming opportunities for fair-goers include artist talks, a musical performance and Friday December 5th’s Women in the Arts event hosted by Miami Project exhibitor Jenkins Johnson Gallery.
