SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS

The 2018 edition will also feature a series of dynamic exhibitions, special projects, highlight presentations, new media work, performance and innovative developments in contemporary sculpture throughout the fair and public outside areas.

Solo exhibitions will include San Francisco's Heron Arts presentation of Donald Ian McCaw, a Canadian performance artist who situates his very personal autobiographical paintings in the context of a very impersonal story about a businessman seeking to reinvent the way fine art is made. He plays out the story of Mba Fabrications Inc., presenting business initiatives with convincing earnestness. From Havana, Estudio Arte Contemporaneo will present a solo show by Cuban artist Rubén Alpízar who explores the postmodern language and its ambiguity of political, economic, social and artistic resources in a contemporary world. London gallery Rhodes Contemporary will present Triple Art Bypass, a solo exhibition by British artist Lucy Sparrow. Within their booth, the gallery will show an immersive installation of an operating theatre and a consulting room made entirely from felt. From Miami, DS Projects will debut a solo exhibition by Argentinian artist Marcolina Dipierro, who addresses the notion of modern abstraction, exploring formal aspects of modern architecture and design in combination and contrast with various forms and materials. Bolo Art/Rele Gallery from Lagos, making its debut appearance at the fair will present a solo show by Nigerian artist Victor Ehikhamenor known for his work with traditional African motifs, religious cosmology drawings and immersive installations. Markowicz Fine Art will present new installation work by street artist KAI. Born in Los Angeles, KAI is recognized globally for his social commentary through his signature body of work IF, a character of no color, sex or race. Cantor Fine Art will present a solo show by German born artist Andrew Myers, known by his large scale three-dimensional portraits.

CONTEXT Video is an energetic curated program for video art, experimental film and moving image works. The program will present a contemporary view on the medium, and will be held on the fair's main floor.

CONTEXT Sound Positions began in 2014, and has grown into a strong platform for the presentation of Sound Art at both CONTEXT Art Miami and CONTEXT Art New York. For our seventh edition in Miami, Sound Positions will be curated by Contour Editions. The program creates an immersive and intimate situation to listen to work of emerging and established sound artists. The program will be held on the fair's main floor.
