Conceived of and launched by experienced fair organizers Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause, the duo –managing partners of artMRKT Productions– run several fairs throughout the year, including artMRKT San Francisco, Hamptons and Texas Contemporary -- all of which are well-received by exhibitors and visitors alike. The same is expected of the artMRKT’s newest production in Miami: “What sets our fairs apart from others is our intimate scale and dedication to showcasing emerging and established artists in a relaxed, welcoming environment,” says Fishko, “We serve the ever-growing market for art and still appeal to the more seasoned collector.”
Miami Project’s open layout and intimate scale will create a welcoming and engaging atmosphere for visitors while offering unique surprises throughout. One such example: Leveraging the national food cart zeitgeist, GastroPod, along with the popular Panther Coffee and tasty Real Sorbet to create a culinary experience fit for foodies.
Wainhause adds, “Our aim is to create an enjoyable experience for our clients and to make the Fair easily accessible. The venue and layout of the fair enables the galleries and artists to be the true stars of the show.”
