PULSE MIAMI BEACH 2015 APPLICATION
Tuesday, December 1 – Saturday, December 5, 2015
PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is pleased to announce new dates for its Miami Beach fair, which returns to Indian Beach Park at 46th Street and Collins Avenue. PULSE Miami Beach will be open from Tuesday, December 1st through Saturday, December 5th, 2015, beginning the week with its signature Private Preview Brunch on Tuesday from 1pm-4pm, followed by an Opening Celebration with special programming from 4pm-7pm, and ending with a Closing Celebration on Saturday, December 5th, from 5pm-7pm.
“After speaking with a number of collectors, many of whom now to travel to Miami earlier in the week, and consulting with our core community of exhibitors, it was clear we needed to change our dates,” states Director Helen Toomer. “We look forward to offering our visitors additional time to discover great artworks at PULSE Miami Beach and also provide a chance for our exhibitors to enjoy all that Miami has to offer, with a day off on Sunday.”
In response to PULSE’s success at its new home on Indian Beach Park, the fair is expanding its footprint to over 50,000 square feet of beachside exhibition space, spanning two tents and hosting over 80 local and international exhibitors. Each tent will embody a distinct style – the main structure will house both PULSE and IMPULSE exhibitors, juxtaposing curated group shows by PULSE galleries next to solo artist presentations by IMPULSE galleries, the latter of whose artists will be nominated for the PULSE Prize. In a space adjacent to this, POINTS exhibitors will be showcased within the new POINTS Pavilion. This will provide a smaller and more affordable platform for alternative models, non-profits, first time exhibitors and galleries who wish to present a project, which they have not yet been able to realize within their gallery space. Core and memorable programming will return to PULSE Miami Beach, including PROJECTS, PERSPECTIVES and PLAY, which will be integrated throughout the fair.
After a full day of commencement festivities on Tuesday December 1st, PULSE Miami Beach will be open to the public from 10am-7pm daily from Wednesday, December 2nd through Saturday, December 5th, 2015, ending with a Closing Celebration on Saturday, December 5th, from 5pm-7pm.
PULSE, IMPULSE, POINTS: WHICH EXHIBITOR ARE YOU?
PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is comprised of three types of exhibitors, PULSE, IMPULSE and POINTS. PULSE and IMPULSE exhibitors are integrated throughout one tent and POINTS exhibitors will inhabit a new connected space – the POINTS Pavilion. The majority of the fair is made up of PULSE exhibitors, who are local and international, emerging and established galleries. IMPULSE exhibitors each exhibit a solo artist presentation within their booth. Each of these artists will be nominated for the PULSE Prize, a cash grant awarded directly to the artist and each nominee will receive extensive coverage in the lead up to, and at the fair. Booths within the adjacent POINTS Pavilion provide a smaller and more affordable platform for alternative models, non profits, first time exhibitors and galleries who wish to present a project which they have not yet been able to realize within their gallery space.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: June 1st, 2015
