OVERTURE MIAMI is a new art fair for 2012, however not entirely new, it's a new name and organization related to ARTS FOR A BETTER WORLD. It will be returning for its 3rd Edition during Art Basel Miami Beach with OVERTURE MIAMI, its newly redesigned and enhanced international contemporary art platform. The fair opens on December 4th and continues through December 9th in Miami.
This year, their featured exhibition will be 100 Warhol's.
An Overview: Painting, Drawing, Collage, Unique Work on Paper, Trial Proofs and Edition Prints.
Unprecedented in scope and depth in the history of art fairs, this monumental selling exhibition is designed to be an accessible and educational survey of the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century.
Presented with cultural partner Taglialatella Galleries and in association with ARTS FOR A BETTER WORLD, the exhibition celebrates Andy Warhol’s career and includes work in a variety of media from the artist’s early years to his final paintings.
Developed around six distinct themes; Flowers, Animals, Politics, Icons, Early Years and Late Years, the exhibition includes iconic works and a great many works never before exhibited to the public.
Exhibition highlights are many, and traverse a great spectrum of time and sensibility. Highlights include the rarely exhibited Flash November 22, 1963 portfolio in its entirety. Warhol created the portfolio in 1968 in response to the national trauma of the Kennedy assassination and to the then unprecedented international media coverage of the event. Additional features include a rare, large scale portrait of 1980’s icon Debby Harry, and a very intimate portrait of Warhol’s beloved Dachshund, Archie.
Besides the 100 Warhol's, OVERTURE MIAMI will be showing artworks from galleries and artists around the world like other satellite art fairs. If youd like to exhibit at this fair, contact them, they still have some space available.
