INK Miami has been unique among satellite fairs of Art Basel Miami Beach for its
exclusive focus on works on paper. Founded in 2006 by the International Fine Print
Dealers Association, the Fair has distinguished itself by the quality of its works and
exhibitors, as well as its lush open-air courtyard, with surrounding suites transformed
into uniquely defined gallery spaces offering a diverse survey of 20th century
masterworks and editions by leading contemporary artists.
To celebrate its eleventh anniversary INK Miami is teaming with Perrier® to present
ARTXTRA, The Perrier® Art Experience
Perrier® will have a presence at the INK Art Fair where they will showcase this exciting new project.
ARTXTRA is a new annual arts initiative presented by Perrier® to support emerging contemporary artists. For more than 150 years, Perrier has collaborated with some of the world’s leading artists, and ARTXTRA builds on that rich legacy. The 2017 Perrier Artist of the Year will embark on a year-long partnership with the brand, including a full-scale installation at Miami Art Week 2017 and the nationwide release of original packaging designs.
Launching on November 1, 2016, three groundbreaking artists have been shortlisted for the inaugural ARTXTRA program, including Saya Woolfalk, Hayal Pozanti and Eric Rieger (HOTTEA). To identify these three artists, Perrier assembled an advisory board of recognized industry leaders, including: Helen Toomer, Michelle Joan Papillion, Beau Basse, Job Piston and Naomi Beckwith. The public are invited to view each artists work and proposed packaging designs and vote to help select the first Perrier Artist of the Year at www.Perrier.com/ARTXTRA.
