NEW YORK, March 2, 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.
