The online-only VIP Art Fair, which suffered from some technical problems in its debut early this year, has released a list of 115 galleries that have opted to participate in its second edition, a total that is down slightly from the 139 it signed for its inaugural edition. VIP 2.0, which stands for “viewing in private” and was started by Chelsea dealer James Cohan and Internet entrepreneur Jonas Almgren, will run next year from Feb. 3 through Feb. 8.

A handful of galleries that participated in this year’ s fair are sitting out 2.0, including Gladstone, L&M Arts, Almine Rech, Andrea Rosen and Sean Kelly. Earlier this year, many dealers and collectors complained that they were unable to access the site in the hours after its opening. Organizers later disabled the site’s instant messaging program and refunded a portion of fees that galleries had paid to participate. They say they have upgraded software in this edition.

In a news release, organizers were quick to note that blue-chip shops like Gagosian, Hauser + Wirth, Zwirner, Pace and Max Hetzler had signed on this year. It has also added sections devoted to multiples and editions, which includes groups like Independent Curators International and Rhizome. The complete list of galleries, organized by booth size, is as follows:
