art basel miami beach 2012
Art Miami returned this year for its 23rd edition with about 125 exhibitors, ranging from the Christie’s–owned Haunch of Venison to Soho’s Eli Klein Fine Art, the Chinese contemporary art gallery that featured prominently on this year’s Bravo television show Gallery Girls.
Christie’s International Real Estate has announced that it will serve as the “official luxury real estate partner” for Art Miami, the long-running fair that is held each year at the same time as Art Basel Miami Beach, as well as its sister event, Context. During the fair, the auction house’s real-estate branch will have a booth showcasing luxury real-estate offerings.
The Art Miami fair company today announced plans to create a new fair called Art Southampton, which will take place July 26-30 in its namesake Long Island hamlet with around 75 modern and contemporary galleries. A news release notes that the fair will be housed in a 75,000-square-foot pavilion “behind the Southampton Elks Lodge and adjacent to Mercedes Benz of Southampton.”
