Aqua 11 at the Aqua Hotel
Strong West Coast Showing

Based out of Seattle, this fair has a distinctly west coast character set off by the indoor/outdoor atmosphere of the Aqua Hotel. Without a doubt, the best hotel art fair in Miami Beach. The fair organizers continue to seek out vibrant and noteworthy programs in their region as well as the greater USA and abroad, with a particular interest in supporting young dealers and galleries with strong emerging and early mid-career artists. Here's a brief view of some of what was displayed.
