14th to 17th of January 2011 – MIA – Miami Beach Convention Center – International Fine Art Exhibitions

MIA will be inaugurating an intriguing and unique new model this year, combining a highly selective art fair with a strong, central curatorial vision, in addition to independently curated projects.

The fair will host prestigious international dealers featuring contemporary, emerging, conceptual, and modern art including photography, installations, performance, and video.

Important American & international galleries, collectors and curators gather in exciting Miami Beach January 13-17, 2011 for the 2nd edition of MIA, America’s most exciting mid-winter contemporary art fair. Highlighting MIA in 2011 is the special installation Museum of Modern Ice, bringing Canadian artist Gordon Halloran’s dazzling paintings in ice to sunny South Florida for the first time. MIA features contemporary art of all media, including photography, installations and video. The fair also integrates innovative educational art projects – linked to important museums and other art-related organizations. An array of vibrant social activities attract collectors from throughout the US, Latin America and Europe.

MIA débuted in 2010 with 80 US and international dealers, drawing more than 17,000 visitors and garnering positive reviews from exhibitors, collectors, curators and press. The fair attracted noted art collectors, including Rosa de la Cruz, Richard Shack and Janet Liedeker, who called MIA “a little gem.”

The fair is organized by International Fine Art Exhibitions (IFAE), founders of Art Miami in the same Miami Beach venue in 1991. MIA is directed by dealer and curator Aldo Castillo.

The dealer-oriented management team has more than 20 years experience producing major international fine art fairs throughout the world including major fairs in Palm Beach, Chicago, New York, Los Angles, Dallas and Hong Kong. IFAE’s current schedule includes seven major art fairs, which take place in Miami, Palm Beach, Naples and London. Founded by David and Lee Ann Lester, IFAE is the largest, most experienced US fair organizer.
