This year marks Aqua's 8th consecutive installment during Art Basel Week in Miami Beach. Over the years, the fair has been recognized for presenting vibrant and noteworthy international art programs with a particular interest in supporting young dealers and galleries with strong emerging and early-mid career artists. With innovative special programming, which features performance art and installation, plus the collective exchange of ideas by 47 exhibiting galleries from North and South America, as well as Japan, Aqua12 will surely pack yet another powerful punch during Art Basel Week.
Aqua is a hotel art fair housed in the Aqua Hotel, and located a few blocks from the Miami Beach Convention Center on Collins Avenue. You'll find terrific visual art at this fair and a relaxed casual environment. This is one of the top Miami Beach art fairs.
This year Aqua 12, will be presenting: Atlanta-based artist Lauri Stallings and her performance art troupe Glo. Livers: REMIX is a 4-hour continuous work that conducts an entire precarious world between the performers and the city of Miami Beach.
