ART ASIA, The Best On The East Coast
ART ASIA Miami is a highly selective showcase for galleries from around the world whose specialty is the best of established and emerging contemporary artists from throughout Asia. Established in 2008, ART ASIA has hosted fairs in Miami and Basel. The fair has positioned itself as the forum for international galleries, curators, artists, collectors, and educators to exchange ideas and enable new audiences to see fresh and exciting works from the complete Asian Diaspora.
In 2009, ART ASIA launched a curatorial and educational program that featured a landmark exhibition curated by Leeza Ahmady titled Truly Truthful. With over 20 artists from 15 countries Truly Truthful sought to dispel the myth that Asian contemporary art is narrowly focused on a single region.
ART ASIA Miami 2010 focused on special projects that challenged the pre-existing notions of Asian contemporary art today. ART ASIA Miami featured established and emerging artists through six special projects with works from China, India, Iran, Korea and Japan.
The 2011 ART ASIA further developed the presence of Near Eastern, Middle Eastern, and Southeast Asian galleries. Through its six-day run, ART ASIA attracted over 30,000 visitors and VIP guests. With impressive international newcomer galleries joining, it was an exceptional showcase of art from diverse Asian regions including East Asia, South East Asia, India, and Middle East.
